Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. This week we explore early childhood education with iTouchiLearn Words by Jane Scarano of Staytoooned and iPhoneKidsApps. If you have toddlers and preschoolers who are working on their words, this app provides engaging activities for budding language skills. Jane recently released an iPad version with additional interactive features – details below!
What is your app about? iTouchiLearn Words for Preschool Kids features animations and word activities wrapped in an easy-to-navigate interface. Toddlers and preschoolers are treated to entertaining animations that teach them about the context of words along with engaging word games. It centers around three activities: Find the Picture that matches the word; Match the Word; and Animations that tell a story about related words in action. iTouchiLearn Words for Preschool Kids comes in two flavors: iPhone and iPad. The iPad version takes full advantage of the iPad’s high definition and size capabilities. This version adds a matching game and a pie chart spinner that lands on a random activity when a child taps the spinner, plus additional content.
Why is it special? What makes this app special are the cute and engaging animations that teach toddlers and preschoolers about the context of words and actions while making them laugh. The animations deliver a multi-sensory experience. A child can hear a word spoken, see the word spelled out and watch an animation of the word in action. This brings words to life and improves word retention. Each word activity provides virtual rewards for correct answers to reinforce and retain what they have learned.
What’s in it for me? See for yourself how mobile touch technology provides an enriching learning experience for your toddler and preschool child.
