My daughter in law Laura is a Kindergarten/Pre-School Teacher. When I showed her the Interactive ABC HD - Pre-reading for Kids for the iPhone and iPad she said she could use this to help not only my grandson but also in her classes. It can be purchased for only $2.99.
It helps kids to learn their ABC’s with the help of animals and other things that begin with the letter you are learning.
See all the other items that are shaded? When the child touches them, they come to life so to speak. They spell out the word for them so that they learn to spell also.
The music and sounds can be turned on or off which ever you prefer.
Each letter screen has more than one item that starts with that letter. When you tap on the picture not only does it spell it out but it also says the letter and coinciding name of the item. You can pick whether you want a male or female voice or no voice at all.
The other thing we like about it is the fact that you can keep an eye on their progress as they go along and learn.
Kids these days are so much more advanced than even some adults. My grandson knows how to use the iPad even better than my husband. He is only 6 but is very smart.
Our schools here in Florida started back on this past Monday and my grandson starts on Wednesday the 22nd. I know some schools even have computers and iPads for the students. Way more advanced than even my kids had.
If my daughter in law recommends this app and is a teacher than I don’t know why any one wouldn’t want to get it for their kids. It has very colorful graphics and cute characters as you can see in the pictures above. And even though it has a variety of melodies sometimes the noise just gets to you and you want to shut it off, which you can do.
It is very helpful considering these days when you start kindergarten, they expect kids to know so much more. When my kids were young, they learned all that in school. Times have changed and kids are so much smarter today.
Here are a few of the
BENEFITS FOR KIDS
- kids’ fine motor skills develop as they tap the letters and images;
- children’s memory improves when kids revise letters;
- attention span increases as a child stays concentrated on the task;
- kids also learn to associate the way the letters and words are pronounced with the way they get written;
I know that kids don’t have a very long attention span. They can hop from one toy to another in a matter of a couple minutes. This app holds their attention and keeps them focused.
If my daughter in law recommends it then I recommend it to teachers and parents. My rating is 5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.
