SPECIAL SALE PRICE!
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.

TeachMe: 2nd Grade keeps children engaged with a unique reward system where children earn coins by playing learning games at the school. They can move around the rest of TeachTown to spend their coins on fun rewards. 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! In addition, the learning screens are colorful, fun and rotate between six different subjects so children don't get bored.

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. Parents can select which subjects they want, set different difficulty levels, and even choose specific questions. Parents can also review performance history for each subject to check how their child is doing.

FEATURES:
• TeachTech writing recognition
• Achievement screen show progress and levels for each topic
• Explore TeachTown to spend coins on fun rewards
• Turn ordinary pictures into fun photos at the Photobooth

Update Launch Sale! 50% off. Winner of Children's Technology Review Editor's Choice Award. It has the best drawing stroke of kid's drawing apps!!! Try to draw a circle in other apps, and you get an octagon. With the new Color & Draw Engine, you get a nice curve. Includes a free letter and number tracer!

NOTE: **** You will need a device running at least iOS 4.0 to install this app. Please make sure you have one. iTunes will not allow you to install the app in you device****

This award is given to only the highest quality children’s products in the interactive media category. These are “no fail” products, worthy of their cost, and able to keep children engaged for days at a time.

Selected by Apple: Staff Favorites, Featured in iPhone Life Magazine.

An interactive artistic springboard for children ages 3-10+.

Color & Draw for kids invites kids to draw, color and decorate drawings or photographs with voice over artistic invitations.

4 apps in 1
1. A drawing and sketching app with white and black canvas backgrounds
2. A coloring book app with 50 exquisite drawings of fun topics including animals, professions and landscapes (no TV cartoons, kids watch enough TV as it is...). It's an Artistic Springboard where some drawings are "incomplete" so children, guided by voice over instructions, can creatively interact with the drawing
3. A photo decorator where kids can draw over your own photos and decorate them with stickers
4. Letter and number tracer.

Digital coloring books can be entertaining, but they can instill passivity in kids. Tap and a color field automatically fills a shape. Or, paint and the app keeps your color stroke within the lines for you. This gets boring fast. Apps that only offer blank pages for 'free drawing' can be a little intimidating for the youngest children. And many so-called activity books are too ambiguous or too difficult for little children to decode on their own, leaving them asking: "Dad, what do I draw now?" and "Mom, what am I supposed to do here?"

Tipitap pushes the limits of traditional coloring apps harnessing the possibilities of the touch screen environments. Color&Draw boasts beautifully crafted, specially designed springboard drawings, voice recorded invitations for all drawing for children to add to or complete the drawings, a lovely color palette, multiple stroke and erasers, multiple 'undos' and new sticker collections including, transportation, animal and dinosaur stickers!

The drawings are simple enough for young children to explore drawing and colors, to go beyond realism and to expand the limits of their imagination. The voice prompt invitations give kids autonomy over the app. Each illustration presents an opportunity to enhance both skills and imagination. And, of course, to have fun with art making.

APP FEATURES
• 50 cute and smart, custom illustrations by our professional art department
• Fun, age-appropriate themes: animals, professions, sports and natural settings
• Save drawings to the in-app Art Gallery, your device photo album or share them via email with friends
• Import images to draw over
• 50 custom voice over invitations
• Real finger painting. Not the classic "the-machine-fills-it-for-you" app engine! Kids develop and improve their fine motor skills and creativity.
• Limited curated color palette. Enough colors choices for a full spectrum of artistic expression yet restricted so kids are not overwhelmed by too many options.
• Eraser and undo options
• Many fun backgrounds to draw on
• Professional grade rendering engine

AVAILABLE FOR IN APP PURCHASE
-Animal Fun Pack: More animal stickers and fun backgrounds
-Transportation Fun Pack: More transportation sticker and fun backgrounds
- Sports Coloring Book

Download iTunes app link Kids Trucks: Preschool Learning

What is Kids Trucks: Preschool Learning? It is a lot of truck learning fun packed into one app. This app works with toddlers and preschoolers on learning their letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. It provides a lot of positive encouragement and incentives to help motivate children to learn and to feel good about their accomplishments (including celebratory fireworks!). The app also provides fun modes when your child needs a break from learning.

Learning Modes: There are currently four learning modes for preschool children and toddlers to use: letters, numbers, shapes, and colors. The child is asked to identify a certain item. When they pick the correct one, they are showered with praise. Help is provided if they have trouble picking the correct response as well. When the child earns five stars, a fun truck animation is provided. When they reach ten stars, they can then use the stars they earned to shoot off their own fireworks!

Free Play Mode: In free play mode, your child can act like they have their own phone or just continue to explore numbers. Touch the numbers and hit the call button to play your recorded messages! Also, they can play with the fun truck animations and sounds.

Record Messages: You can record your own messages both for the free play modes and learning modes. Personalize your own positive encouragement statements for your child or have fun recording silly messages for them to hear while they play.

Highlights:
* Bright, fun animations that are high resolution for iPad and iPhones with retina displays.
* Trucks with personality!
* Easy for toddlers and preschoolers to use independently or with an adult.
* Lots of positive praise and encouragement to help kids learn their letters, numbers, shapes, and colors.
* Record your own positive encouragement and messages.
* Fireworks!!!

The free version contains the Free Play Mode (no jackhammer or dump truck) and the Shapes Learning Mode. It also allows for limited recordings. You can unlock all modes and features easily via in-app purchase!

ATTENTION
If you don't want your child to accidentally buy the full version, then be sure to disable in-app purchases via the settings menu of your device.

Fun & Functional is an application developed by author and Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) Rosie Simms to improve language comprehension and expression in individuals of all age groups. The ability to identify and describe the function or use of real-world objects is a key language and life skill. Fun & Functional provides SLPs, parents and others with a tool to develop categorization and descriptive skills by interacting with pictures and audio.

Fun & Functional is based on research around vocabulary and word meaning development in students. Improving vocabulary, describing ability and associations between words assists students in language comprehension and reading skills (Bromley, 2007). In particular, students have more difficulty acquiring verb-based vocabulary (Loeb, Pye, Redmond & Richardson, 1996), a skill that is targeted by Fun & Functional. The application allows for a focus on identifying and describing words within essential categories such as vehicles and household items, consistent with research indicating that categorization improves word storage and retrieval (Miller & Eilam, 2008). The application is designed to provide visual supports shown to be helpful for students with autism spectrum disorder and also targets suggested goals for this population such as expansion of word knowledge and action words (ASHA, 2006). Fun & Functional is also applicable to the instructional goals of children with language learning disorders, whose difficulties with vocabulary acquisition and descriptive language put them at risk for difficulties with reading and writing (Chanly, 1994; Gray, 2003, 2006; Stahl & Fairbanks, 1986).

Fun & Functional can be used to:
-Help children identify items that have a particular use or function.
-Develop understanding and auditory comprehension of Wh-Questions and verb forms.
-Target categories of items such as clothing, school items, and occupations.
-Elicit and score students’ verbal descriptions of items.
-Measure treatment effectiveness and skill growth over time through reported data.

Fun & Functional has the following Features:
-Receptive Activity in which students identify items that perform a certain use or function (presented visually and with audio).
-Ability to customize Receptive Activity according to number of choices presented (2, 3, or 4) to modify level of difficulty. Receptive Activity can also be customized according to level of similarity within “incorrect” items.
-Choice of application responses when child selects incorrect item (move to next question, incorrect item disappears from screen, or “Try Again!” message)
-Selection of specific or all categories to target.
-Expressive Activity in which students verbally describe the function of items (e.g. “What do you do with a broom?), so that SLPs, parents or others can score their response as “Missed it!” “Almost” or “Got it!” within the application.
-Quick Play and Receptive-Expressive combination activities.
-Report presented at conclusion of activity; can be emailed to parent or for record-keeping.

For the first time you can use your own photos to create interactive Spanish lessons and personalized Flashcards’ galleries.

This is how it works:

1) Take a picture of anything you want: your puppy, your bike, your favorite food…you know, ANYTHING. The cool thing is that it doesn’t matter if you don’t know how it’s called in Spanish. The app will figure that out for you.

3) Within 30 sec Voxy PhotoFlashcards will send you back the picture with the corresponding Spanish word

4) Save the picture to your Flashcard gallery and use it later to quiz yourself and check your progress

★ Own your words! Take a picture with your camera or browse your photo gallery to turn an image from your life into a FLASHCARD.

★ Not a picture person? We got you covered. Each flashcard comes pre-loaded with a STENCIL. That’s ok, but really, you should replace the stencil with a picture of yours. You’ll memorize words faster and with much higher retention

★ Our cool TUTORIAL will show you how to use the app and walk you step-by-step through the process of creating a new flashcard


★ Rate yourself…and be honest! When you review your flashcards we want you to rate how confident you feel about having memorized a word. We know it’s not always a YES or NO. Sometimes it’s more of a MAYBE. Be honest and the app will get smarter with you

★ Test yourself: 3 different types of exercises to help you memorize new words and improve your reading and listening comprehension

★ Add NOTES to your flashcard to help you memorize new words. Notes can also be used as hints when you review the words saved in your vocabulary.
