Words that Go with Richard Scarry’s Busytown Cars

a4cwsn's insight:
“Richard Scarry’s Busytown Cars are a fun way to introduce vehicles, spelling, and letter order while enjoying the amazing art work, A4cwsn”

Richard Scarry’s delightfully wacky cars come to life in this interactive educational game for kids ages 2-6. When the Apple Car arrives at a Busytown stoplight, kids spell a-p-p-l-e to help it zoom through the intersection. With five playing modes, including letter matching, early phonics and spelling, this app grows with your child.

Classic favorites like the Banana Mobile, Pickle Car and of course Lowly Worm’s Apple Car are among the 48 unique vehicles children can help zoom through the Busytown intersection. Brave Officer Flossy is hot on the trail of that bad driver Dingo. And look out for Goldbug along for the ride.

As children seek new challenges, parents can adjust the difficulty level.

At Level 1, children learn to recognize and match letters, and experience putting letters together to make words.
Level 2 maintains the skills from level 1 and adds left to right ordering to encourage children to match letters from left to right.
Level 3 provides exposure to early phonics. Gameplay is similar to Level 2, but now children can hear letter sounds come together to make words.
Level 4 challenges kids to figure out the order of the letters based on their sounds, without visual hints.
Level 5 brings in big words and sight words to help early readers practice spelling.

Be sure to check out our other popular educational play apps including First Letters and Phonics, First Words Animals, and First Words Deluxe.

Touch and Write Storybook: 3 Bears

Touch and Write Storybook: 3 Bears | Apps for Children with Special Needs | Scoop.it
” FizzBrain brings letter tracing, reading, phonics and fun together for their first Touch and [...]
a4cwsn's insight:

Children love “Touch and Write” – now, there’s “Touch and Write Storybook”!

 

“Touch and Write Storybook” was designed by classroom teachers and it is unique: on each page of the story, children master the story vocabulary using our engaging “Touch and Write” reading and writing activities. By the end of the story, children will have mastered almost 200 important vocabulary words, and learned the phonics pronunciations of each word’s letters!

 

In the Writing Room, children write the words from the current page of the story using fun textures like shaving cream, ketchup or jello. They learn the phonics pronunciation of each word’s letters as they write. In the Reading Room, children master reading these vocabulary words by following directions and giving the correct words to Goldilocks, Papa, Mama or Baby Bear.

 

In addition, “Touch and Write Storybook” includes the interactive features you expect: children can listen to the lines of the story as they are highlighted, children can tap and hear individual words, and children can tap around the illustration to learn new vocabulary. They can also take Papa’s Quiz by reading Papa’s word and tapping the correct part of the illustration. The storybook includes both “Read to Me” and “Read Myself” modes.

 

Just for fun, four interaction pages are spaced throughout the story. Help Goldilocks knock on the door – but watch out for characters from the wrong story! Help Goldilocks eat up her porridge – better blow on it to let it cool! Help Goldilocks rock in her rocking chair – can you rock her just right? And help Goldilocks test the beds – the sounds will tell you if a bed is too hard, too soft, or just right!

Prepare your child to become a strong reader and writer – the “Touch and Write” way!

Animals of Africa – A Montessori Approach to Geography

a4cwsn's insight:
“So much information in one amazing app, if you want to increase your knowledge of Africa and the animals that live there then this is the app for you, A4cwsn”

Introducing the first in a series of apps that will help children and adults learn about the animals of each continent and help raise awareness of endangered species!

This app features the animals of Africa. You will learn where each animal lives on the African continent, several facts about each animal, and their current conservation status.

Lesson #1 contains the Information Center with all the facts:

Touch an animal in the photo-strip to change the featured animal on the page. Touch the Map button to see the animal’s habitat highlighted on the map. Touch the Speaker button to hear the correct pronunciation of the animal name. Touch the Definition button to see and hear a detailed description of the animal as well as the Animal Facts box, containing dimensions, weight and conservation information. A list of Conservation definitions can be seen by touching the button on the top bar.

In Lessons #2 & #3 assemble the African Habitat maps by finding the animal prompted by the shown habitat or name. This activity expands the Continent Box activity found in the Montessori classrooms

In the first habitat map lesson children have to look for the animal that corresponds to the name shown at the top, as well as, the habitat shown on the map. When they touch the correct animal card, a representative animal shape will transfer to the map as the name of the animal is heard aloud.

In the second habitat map lesson children have to look for the animal that corresponds to the shown habitat only! This is more challenging, however, you will be pleasantly surprised how fast you will learn to memorize the animal habitats!

In Lesson #4 drag and place the animal puzzle pieces to the map. The locations correspond to their habitat and the name of the animal is heard aloud when it is placed correctly.

This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children!

We sincerely thank you for your downloads and suggestions!

This app begins a new series of Geography Apps for us! We sincerely thank you for your support of our other Montessori applications and hope you enjoy this one!
