The Bag Game

Published September 20, 2012 2:15 PM by Jeremy Legaspi

The Bag Game, .99 cents by all4mychild, is a new twist on the game 20 questions. This is a great app for children working on asking questions, describing, categorization, and more. To play you select the object (the app comes with 100 items to hide) to be hidden, hit hide and then ask your questions! 

Along  the right side of the screen are question prompts that you can tap if you need some help in asking your question. There is a question counter at the bottom of the screen that makes it easy to keep track of how many questions were asked. 










The app just was updated with a feature I have been eager to use, which is the ability to hide a picture of your own! 


The app is a lot of fun and works great in a group setting. With the new features you can target articulation, as well by adding pictures of specific target words to your photo gallery.  Have Fun!

We're giving this app away for FREE to three lucky SLPs. Share a comment below on your favorite app (or other tool) to use in group settings. We'll have a drawing Monday Sept. 24, and the three winners will receive codes to download this for FREE!


All the social tgiagng apps I find pointless and just there to expose you to adverts and variosu rogue embedded sites.  I'm just a little sick of the  vampire bites, the drinks, the food fights, pokes (WTF is that for) and the other email notification.  To the point that all but join and group notifications I have disabled.  I'm just fed up with the as you put it facebook spam. It was fun at first, now its waste of my time and effort.Yeah, I'm on facebook.  I don't login that much, Maybe once every two weeks.  Why, well I have to go login. Every time I stop the session by shut down the browser means I have to login again.  And frankly I just can't be bothered going through the process.  If I was left logged in I would visit every day.Also consider why should I extend information and play the spam games with in a walled garden in favour of  extending my blog.

I was just given IPads at my school for therapy! I would absolutely love this to be my first app! I have so many kids that would really benefit from this activity.

I use Rainbow Sentences and Conversation Builder in groups and the students love them. Another favorite is Shake-a-Phrase.  It is great for practicing speech sounds, parts of speech and recognizing absurdities. I would love to add "What's in the Bag?" to the collection of apps I use with my students. Thank you!

I use mad libs, language adventure, story builder, and you tube- "Simon's Cat" for various ages and various language goals. I now have a number of early elementary students who are working on vocabulary skills such as categorization, labeling, and explaining similarities with an important detail. This app would address their goals!

Taca boca birthday party, cafe and shop are great apps for a small group of 3 children to practize play situations. First on iPad, then real life play.

A great free app is 'sticker book'. I use it for practicing prepositions and following directions. I'd love to win this app to add to my collection!

Recently, Magical Concepts seems to be a very popular app among my students.  I also really like Rainbow Sentences for the population I serve.  A third favorite would be Speech Stickers.  I really like the bag game and would love to be able gift a code to a colleague.  Thanks for offering one.

I use Language Adventures with groups of students.  They enjoy the game format of that app!

I love using Conversation Builder. The kids have a great time recording themselves and playing back the conversations!

I use this app often.  It's great for practice asking questions, vocabulary associations and categories.  Since kids can scroll through the pictures to be able to hide an object, it helps them remember/think of options when it's their turn to guess.  It's a great way to bridge the gap between verbally playing the 20 questions game, by providing some visual support.

My favorite app that I have (so far) is Rainbow Sentences.  It's the closest thing I can find to folks sentences that I loved.  Hopefully I will win this one, and can add it to my list of favorites.

I love this game. This is great to have kids work on vocabulary, questions, grammar, remembering/recalling info, attributes....the list is endless. I play this in the car with the kids and sometimes we say, "I'm thinking of something that can fit in your hand" or "something that fits in a shoebox" or "something that is the same size as ___" for comparison times!! I hope I Win!!
