ABBY MONKEY 7+2 First Words Preschool

ABBY MONKEY 7+2 First Words Preschool | Apps for your class | Scoop.it
Get ABBY MONKEY 7+2 First Words Preschool on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
Keith Fiore's insight:

From the developer - Monkey Abby teaches you words from more than *seven thematic categories!* Come and explore with Abby all the colorful words from the exciting world of Numbers (10 words), Common Words (66 words), Colors (11 words), Fairy Tales (13 words), Shapes (12 words), Animals (30 words), and Fruits & Vegetables (12 words)! All in all, 154 words in just one app


Thanks to a wide range of modification, this app is one of those, which will grow with your child. Let's look together on how you can adjust this app to suit just your child! 
* As noted above, the game mode can be accommodated to either matching mode for very small children or to a reading mode (labeling of the pictures-to-be-matched is turned off) for those who are slightly more advanced. 
* For convenience, you can choose whether the letter sounds are going to be read aloud in the learning mode when the letters are manipulated. 
* The same way, you can choose whether you prefer lower/upper case letters or if you want the words to be capitalized. 
* In order to make the game age-appropriate, you can also turn on the letter hints, which will make the word composition game in the learning mode essentially a letters matching game. 
* Moreover, you can modify the length of the longest word appearing in the application.
* The words can either appear in a random or alphabetical order -- an alphabetical order can be better for learning, while a random order for testing of already acquired knowledge.
* An option to be learning the words from all of the categories at once (All words option) or just from a few selected categories is also included (My Words option)

Go Go Games

Vimeo is the home for high-quality videos and the people who love them.
Keith Fiore's insight:

Go Go Games is an award-winning suite of casual games to support children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in learning to quickly notice multiple features of the objects in the world around them – a specific perceptual skill that is essential to learning and comes naturally to most children, but is known to be a common difficulty for those with ASD.

 

Go Go Games uses the techniques of Pivotal Response Therapy (PRT), an evidence-based behavioral intervention which targets several common challenges for learners with ASD, including this particular perceptual ability.

 

Go Go Games provides the opportunity to build this critical skill by maneuvering trucks, trains, and spaceships through a trio of fantasy adventures. We designed the game to be simple, playful, and fun – though behind the scenes each matching sequence is carefully selected to gradually improve a player’s ability to notice and respond to increasingly complex features.

 

FEATURES:
3 different matching games to support a broad range of children on the autism spectrum
6 levels of difficulty to help a child to observe, scan, focus, and categorize
Touch-sensitivity and responsiveness for players with fine motor challenges
Positive rewards with verbal praise and delightful sounds to boost confidence; stress-free gaming experience with no penalties
Original artwork, music, real voice files, and colorful animations

Edmodo

Get Edmodo on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
Keith Fiore's insight:

The one and ONLY LMS for teachers/parents/students.

 

Secure learning system that you should adopt into your classroom.

 

Sign up on the Edmodo website first! http://www.edmodo.com

 

What is Edmodo?

Edmodo is a learning management system (LMS) that has a very simple user interface (UI). I have used Edmodo with students as young as 2nd graders (going to try with 1st graders this year).


Edmodo makes it easy to provide students a starting point, access resources, assignments, quizzes, test, and communicate with the teacher.


The teacher has a code to invite fellow teachers and students.


The students' account has a secure code to link to their parents so the parents have access to the content and assignments (hope none are missing).


Using Edmodo will make a teacher’s daily life easier by providing a safe and easy way for teachers and students to engage and collaborate for free, anytime, anywhere.

Each time the user selects a right answer, they are rewarded with a sprinkle of brightly colored stars on the screen.
