iPad apps of the day–pre-reading extravaganza

  ABC Magic Spelling 1 – FREE today

Trevy loves anything that has drag n’ drop action going on.  And mommy loves that this app is teaching him pre-reading skills.  Takes gobs of patience, coaching and redirection but with mommy showing him where to place the letters – he can successfully complete two words before wanting to hit the iPad road.  Ex:  Trevy find the letter “m”.  M is a tuffy for him so I’ll usually need to tap it .  Trevy put “m” here.  And I’ll point to M’s home.  I have no idea if this is right or wrong but I always make him spell the word the right way.  My philosophy is to start teaching him now.  Bonus love – Bristel rocks it!  I’m so proud of how well she’s doing with her reading and spelling!

Thanks for sharing the apps. We just got one for my son so I'm always looking for apps. So far he loves it and is already saying moo for the cow. It's a great therapy tool. Thanks again
