I am so excited about my new iPad and the apps that I have purchased for my kindergarteners. Here are the best apps that I have found for kindergarten learners.
Robot Reader (free) a robot voice tells you the letter, sound, word and definition of something that starts with that letter
1 2 3 Color ($1.99) I love this app! It is basically a fancy color by number, letter or color picture. The letter, number or color only disappears if you choose the right one.
Letters A to Z ($.99) This is the app that I am going to use first. It is letter and sound flash cards with cute illustrations.
iWrite Words ($2.99) Great app for practicing writing upper and lowercase letters, numbers and words. Love how you have to send the letters down a "hole" when you are finished.
Letter Lab ($2.99) Great app for writing upper and lowercase letters.
Pocket Charts! Beginning Sounds ($1.99) Match a letter to a picture of something that starts with that letter. The only thing I do not like about this app is that the pictures are shown in alphabetical order.
Pocket Charts! Vowel Sounds (($1.99) Identify short and long vowels. Great app.
Learn Sight Words ($.99) This is an iPhone app, but it is worth it because you can flag the sight words that you use or sight words that a child is having trouble identifying for practice.
ABC Sight Words Writing ($2.99) Good app for practicing spelling and writing sight words.
