Grade Recommendation: PreK - 2nd
Specific Skill: Letters and numbers
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both
In this simple app, young children can trace numbers and letters with a finger. They can begin by watching an animation of the tracing of the letter or number while the app also verbally says the letter or number. After tracing the letter, students can press a button to receive instant feedback. The letters and numbers can be traced consecutively or in any order. Children may choose between upper and lowercase letters and the numbers 1 - 10.
In addition, users can click on alphabet pals that accompany each letter. For example clicking on the pal beside the letter A causes the device to say, "Aloha, my name is Ally and I am an alligator."
Get this app if you have the need for children to practice forming letters and numbers the correct way.
