I had the opportunity to visit EDExpo in Atlanta , and it was amazing. It's basically where companies come to get in contact with store buyers, but they allowed some bloggers to crash their party. Pretty nice, huh? I got to wander around with Dana from Prepping the Primary Grid Iron, Deirdre from A Burst of First, and Molly from Lucky to be in First. We met Pete the Cat. It's a hard life.
This is not a paid review, but I will say that I was given this set of TouchTronic letters.
So anyway, TouchTronic Letters and Numbers. They are sets of letters and numbers that you can use with an iPad. Right now, they're are two apps for each product, but it seems there are plans for more.
The letters set (the one I was given during our group freakout) is $29.99 on the Junior Learning site and usually around $25 on Amazon. There are several apps for it right now-an ABC app, 3 letter words app, and a couple of others.
The ABC App:
The 3 Letter Words App:
•Immediate feedback. If it’s not a real word, nothing happens. If it is a real word, a picture pops up.
•When you tap the letter on the screen, it makes the letter sound. This is reinforcement my kids need over and over.
The math set blew me away. I really, really want this one. That’s pretty dumb because I DON'T EVEN TEACH MATH. I keep trying to come up with reasons I should go ahead and buy it. So far, I haven't come up with any.
Anybody else using TouchTronic Letters? How do use them with your students?
