EXCLUSIVE: Uses TeachTech to read child's written math and spelling answers.

TeachMe: 2nd Grade is the fourth installment in the popular TeachMe series of educational apps for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. TeachMe: 2nd Grade teaches six age-appropriate subjects to second grade children: spelling, sight words, long addition, long subtraction, fast addition and fast subtraction. TeachMe: 2nd Grade's unique TeachTech character recognition engine interprets a child's written answers, helping to reinforce writing skills while teaching math and spelling.

Children can make fun photos at the Photobooth, collect stretchable shapes at the Shape Store, visit their virtual aquarium at the Fish Store, and decorate different scenes at the Art Store. The simple and intuitive user interface is designed to be child friendly, which allows children to play without help from an adult. An animated teacher (Mimi Mouse) gives verbal instructions and feedback to encourage the child to learn and succeed!

TeachMe: 2nd Grade is the only iPhone app which reads your child's writing using TeachTech, 24x7digital's writing recognition engine. Children write their answers for math and spelling questions and TeachMe: 2nd Grade reads them using TeachTech. If your child needs help, TeachMe: 2nd grade will show them how to write the correct answer including the proper stroke order.

Each child has an achievements screen which motivates and encourages learning by showing progress and levels for each topic. Parents can use this screen to quickly see progress of their child.

Write My Name by Injini

Developed by experts and endorsed by parents and teachers, Write My Name by Injini is a fun way for children to practice writing letters, words, names and phrases. Write My Name supports children ages 4 through 6 to learn how to write their name, trace uppercase and lowercase letters, and write over 100 familiar sight/Dolch words. Write My Name meets some of the basic reading and writing Common Core State Standards for kindergarten such as the introduction and mastery of print and word recognition concepts.

How to Play

Embedded within a child’s beautiful wood desk space there are three activity areas that preschoolers and kindergarteners can explore as they practice and master writing their alphabet, name, and common sight words.

·ABC alphabet book focuses on learning and tracing the individual uppercase or lowercase letters.

·Word cards introduce over 100+ common sight words where children trace words in uppercase or lowercase letters. Once the word is traced, the word card comes to life with vibrant colors and animations. Trace the word a second time and a star stamp is added to the student’s word journal. These rewards encourage children to keep progressing through all the words provided.

·My Name allows parents and teachers to create over 36 nametags, including the child’s name with a picture for children to practice writing words that are especially meaningful for them.

Students with Special Needs

In the same tradition as Injini and My First AAC, Project Injini was inspired to create Write My Name for children with special needs to help them practice emerging writing skills in a fun and playful way. Children with name writing as one of their IEP (individual education program) goals will especially benefit from the Write My Name learning application as it makes this task accessible and achievable to children with fine motor delays and sensory processing issues.

Preschool Animal Match

Updated Mar 17, 2011
Price Free
Download iTunes app link Preschool Animal Match

“Preschool Animal Match” is a premium memory game for preschoolers. It will help them learn the names of animals whilst improving their memory skills, all in an entertaining game.

The game consists of matching animal pairs. All the animals announce their names when revealed and there is also a fun animation and sound made when the match occurs.

Once all the matches are made, the animal pairs animate and say their names continuously until your preschoolers decide to replay the game, by deflating the replay balloon with a click.

Special care is taken to make the game’s interface extremely simple and avoid adding options and menus that would catch your child’s attention and diminish the educational quality of the game.
The Game will open in full screen mode and hide all menus and the dock, so your child can only play the game and cannot exit it until you decide so. Both right click and left click will work the same within the game, so your child will not be frustrated by clicking on the wrong side of the mouse.

If you are learning English this is also a great way to learn proper English pronunciation and new words. Preschool Animal Match is made in the UK so expect a british accent.

There is a version of this game on the iOS App Store, a universal iOS App (iPad , iPhone and iPod touch).

Like our SkySafari iPhone apps, SkySafari for Mac OS X comes in three versions. This version - SkySafari Plus - is the intermediate one. It adds a hugely expanded database - and wired or wireless telescope control - to the basic version.

SkySafari Plus shows you 2.5 million stars, and 31,000 deep sky objects - including the entire NGC/IC catalog. It shows the Solar System's major planets and moons using NASA spacecraft imagery, and includes over 4,000 asteroids, comets, and satellites with updateable orbits. It can point your GoTo or "Push-To" telescope anywhere in the sky, using your Mac's built-in WiFi, or a USB-to-serial adapter.

SkySafari Plus accurately shows you the sky from any place on Earth, at any time up to one million years in the past or future. It includes 1100 encyclopedic descriptions of the constellations, stars, and planets written by professional astronomers. And it contains over 800 images from NASA space missions, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the world's foremost astro-photographers.

SkySafari Plus takes advantage of Apple's latest Mac OS X features. It understands multitouch gestures on Macs with multitouch trackpads, and supports OS X 10.7 (Lion) full-screen mode. And its responsive, fluid interface borrows from the best aspects of SkySafari for iPhone. SkySafari for Mac OS X truly brings astronomy software into the 21st century.

Aa Match Preschool Alphabet

Device Mac
Category Education
Updated Jan 11, 2011
Price Free
Download iTunes app link Aa Match Preschool Alphabet

“Aa Match Preschool Alphabet” is a premium Mac alphabet learning game for preschoolers. If your children love letters and the alphabet song, they will love this game.
The game consists of matching lower case letters to their capital letters. The letters announce their sound when revealed and there is also a fun animation and sound made when the match occurs.
Once all the matches are made you get treated to a sweet version of the alphabet song, that plays continuously until your preschoolers decide to replay the game, so they can sing along for as long as they like.
Special care is taken to make the game’s interface extremely simple and avoid adding options and menus that would catch your child’s attention and diminish the educational quality of the game.
The Game will open in full screen mode and hide all menus and the dock, so your child can only play the game and cannot exit it until you decide so. Both right click and left click will work the same within the game, so your child will not be frustrated by clicking on the wrong side of the mouse.
If you are learning English this is also a great way to learn correct English spelling. Aa match is made in the UK so expect a slight british accent.

The current version uses the American pronunciation of the letter Z. An update with the option of using the British version (Zed instead of Zee) will be available within 2 weeks, due to popular demand.

There are two versions of this game on the iOS App Store, an iPhone/iPod touch version and a HD iPad version (Universal).
