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!

a4cwsn's insight:

March of the Dinosaurs is an interactive storybook that comes alive in your hands with highly realistic 3D dinosaurs that spin and zoom at the touch of your fingers.

Another offering from Touch Press (creators of The Elements and Solar System for iPad), March of the Dinosaurs takes the reader on a journey for survival, fraught with danger – blizzards, volcanic eruptions and deadly predators. Set in the Arctic 70 million years ago, Scar, a young Edmontosaurus, embarks on his first thousand-mile migration. It is a world of extremes: hot summers with 24-hour sunlight are replaced by freezing winters with continuous night.

Follow the story page by page, either reading at your own pace or with the text dynamically highlighted and spoken by Dr Who actor Kerry Shale. Use your iPad to meet the cast: 10 realistic 3D animated dinosaurs that can be rotated and zoomed, featuring scientific fact files about each of the creatures. High definition digital animation, specially produced by the team behind the National Geographic special “Escape of the Dinosaurs”, brings alive dramatic key moments in the story.
