Smarty Ears' Yes No Barn {An App Review}

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

I'm back today with another app review from my peeps over at Smarty Ears! This is by far one of the most used apps on my iPad right now: Yes/No Barn!

When you first open the app, you can add players by clicking "Add New". You can select up to 5 players at a time to play the game! You can also import students from TRC if you already have them added.

From the home screen, you can also change the settings. You can choose which types of questions are asked, whether or not to display the text, audio feedback, languages, and more!

Once you have selected your players and begin the game, yes/no questions are given. The student simply needs to choose "no" or "yes" to the question.

If the student answers correctly, they can receive both auditory and visual reinforcement! If they choose an incorrect response, they will be prompted to try again.

When you're finished with the game, simply click "Done" in the upper right corner. You can then choose which student's report card you'd like to see.

If you'd like to share the student's report card, you can! All you have to do is prove you're a teacher and not a student by answering a simple math problem. (I love this safety net!)

Once you've proven you are who you say you are, you can choose whether you want to email, print or open the report card in another program.

A few notes: I love the simplicity of this app. I have so many students with Autism working on answering questions with an answer instead of repeating the question. I love that this app provides a visual for the students to use to choose an answer. I also love that you can practice vocabulary with the app as well. (Is this a chair? NO. What is it? IT'S A BABY."

Yes/No Barn is available in iTunes for $5.99. It's definitely worth it! You can find it at the link below:

Do you use Yes/No Barn? What do you think?
