Touch and Write Storybook: 3 Bears

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!

“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.
