Rapstar is an app that teaches children parts of speech and grammar using pop songs. The app takes words from student’s favorite songs and asks children to identify which part of speech they are by dragging and dropping into the appropriate “bin”. This interactive app is currently supported by Apple devices.
Rapstar is fairly self explanatory and simple to learn. Students will have a bank of words which they must drag and drop into the correct part-of-speech (P.O.S.) box. Students lose and gain points based on how well they are able to identify the words. If the health bar drops below zero, the game will end and the level must be restarted. If the students achieve a certain number of correct placements they will be eligible to move forward to the next level which include new P.O.S. categories and different songs.
