Play 123! Featured in iTunes "Best of 2012", Play123 is a cute, fun app for preschoolers and toddlers that assists in learning shapes, numbers, and colors with a really cool feature that makes children's finger drawings magically convert into a real-life sewn image.
Little Writer Little Writer helps young children correctly form letters, numbers, shapes, and words by incorporating easy tracing techniques and positive reinforcement. The main page of the app allows the choice of 5 different sections: ABC, abc, 123, shapes, or words. In each section, the letter, number, or shape appears on the screen with a cartoon animal or vehicle at the correct starting point for letter, number, or shape formation. Cartoon animals follow the path of the food they want to eat and cartoon vehicles follow the path of the items they are trying to pick up (a tractor follows the path of hay, etc.).
Fry Words The Fry word list or "instant words" are widely accepted to contain the most used words in reading and writing. The list is divided into ten levels and then divided into groups of twenty-five words, based on frequency of use and difficulty. It is important for young readers to instantly recognize these words by sight in order to build up their reading fluency. It is also important for readers to practice words in meaningful context through phrase and sentence reading practice. As a follow up activity, students can practice writing short sentences including Fry words.
