(h)APPy June!

With technology changing the way my kiddos learn, I have made more of an effort to stay on top of technology!  With toddlers and an almost nine year old, the websites and apps vary greatly at our house!  Here are a few of our favorites:

Super Why (version 1.4)
by PBS Kids

Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

Featuring the cute characters from Super Why on PBS, this app allows kids to earn virtual stickers for a job well done.  It focuses on letter sounds and sight words.  *My kids love this app!

You can also go to www.pbskids.org to play fun Super Why themed games, print coloring sheets, and more!

Starfall Learn to Read
by Starfall Education, LLC

Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

Includes activities, movies, and songs.  Perfect for emergent readers and ESL learners

Visit www.starfall.com to visit an incredible website for kids learning to read.  My daughter played on this website before apps were popular and I'm convinced that it played a part in her early reading.

ABC Alphabet Phonics (version 1.06)
by Abitalk Incorporated

Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

Teaches the alphabet song, letter sounds, and letter recognition.
