E’s Apps: June

Letter School:  I’ve struggled with getting E to sit down and practice writing his letters.  Letter School to the rescue!  He now knows how to form each of the letters, upper and lowercase.  Now, how do I get him to hold a pencil correctly?

Team Umizoomi:  Nick Jr. is promoting this app heftily, so we eventually gave into the hype.  E loves the math games although I suspect he will master it (i.e. earn all of the trophies) within the week.

Starfall:  If you have never visited Starfall’s website, you should.  Starfall is great for pre-readers and early readers.  The app is really fun.

TallyTots and AlphaTots:  Both are bargains as they contain many mini-activities within each app.  As suspected, TallyTots focuses on number recognition to 20 and AlphaTots reviews the letters. They were great just as he turned three.
