Talking Shapes iPad App is an interactive reading program for grades preschool through Kindergarten, developed by Talking Fingers, Inc. Talking Fingers is based off a simple idea that text is speech made visible. If you think about it , we use our mouths to talk and our fingers to write those sounds on paper. Kids learn how to make a connection of the sound of the letters that they are writing.
While we were watching the figure skating during the Olympics, I found my daughter really engrossed into watching. She all of a sudden got up and leaned forward and put her leg in the air and said Mommy I can do that too.
Well last week Friday we went on a field trip ice skating with other homeschoolers. My daughter really liked it. So I asked her if she wanted to take ice skating lessons.
I picked up a pamphlet from the US Figure Skating and I called the number. I spoke with a wonderful person there who took the time to explain the different levels and competitions. We talked about skates that would support her ankles.
If you are working on a community helper theme, or just have a child who is into airplanes then My First App Vol 3 Airport is for them.
My daughter is fascinated with airplanes. She loves when we are near the airport when the planes take off and land. We have even sat at McDonald’s parking lot eating one day just watching them take off and land. I love how excited she was about it. Brought back memories for me as a child. This app has a lot of opportunities for kids to understand the different actions. For example: flying, moving, and loading. Now just thinking about it, this might be a good introduction to plans if you were going on a trip and had to fly.
Do you have a little princess in your household that loves to get her hair done? I have a fun app to share with you called “Hairstyles for Little Girls“.
This app is a set of more than 100 tutorials on how to create kids hairstyles and girls braiding with detailed instructions and step-by-step photos. This app is geared towards moms and their sweet, little princesses.
The photos in this app look very professional and colorful. I love that when your looking at a particular style you can see different views of the style. It gives you a better picture of how it is suppose to look or how you could even tweak it a little.
