I am playing with some more apps. My little one seems to still really favor Super Why, 1-10 Balloons, and Monkey Preschool. But I’m giving some more a try.
I did get all the flash cards from Kindergarten.com. These were free at the time and have pictures of each item, say the word, and have a copy of the word. It started with a screen with the name and Touch Screen to Begin, but no annoying ads. The flashcard apps are broken into topics. I’m not sure I would pay for it, but I am leaving it on the iPad my son uses. - I’m not though leaving them on my phone since they aren’t something he would devote hours to playing with. They would though be VERY handy when he is in a mood where he wants something and we have no idea what. Normally our little one at 2 1/2 won’t speak. He does a lot of pointing, so this app can be handy for flipping through letting him choose a food or activity.
I am also playing with the apps made by Innovative Investments that include Little Speller 3 letter words. They are paid apps. I’m currently looking at Kids Learning – Little Speller 3 Letter Words, and i went ahead and got them all. It allows a parent to add their own words, audio prompts, and pictures. (You can even add their name) You can even delete items you don’t like. This is an app I’ll leave on my phone besides on our iPad for just in case we are out and need something to play with.
The last I looked at this morning is Kid Genius 13 in 1. It seems to be made up of flashcards. I only have the light version so it might be better with the paid version, but I wasn’t impressed enough to get the full version. I actually removed the app from my phone and may from Konnor’s device too. I think one of my issues is that there is just too much included in one place. Interest when in the app is just too scattered.
