Last week we had discussed about our Smart apps for toddlers – TinyTapps. If you missed it, you can read it here. Today, we are going to explain about our English language apps. We have four colourful and fun apps for teaching English. Let’s take a look at them.
Fun with ABC – Alphabet Learning
This lovely app introduces your kid to the world of English alphabets. It has a colourful interface with jungle theme that children would easily relate to. There are four sections in this app –alphabet recognition (ABC), alphabet tracing (ABC Trace), alphabet activity (ABC Game) and song (ABC Song). These sections together provide a comprehensive learning that children will enjoy. The app is simple to use for both child and parent/teacher.
Your child will have fun learning small letters of the English language with this smart app. This app aims to develop and strengthen both visual and auditory associations with alphabets. It also has an activities section that has been designed to build your child’s analytical thinking and recognition skills. This app has a read and writes section that, as the name suggests, is aimed at improving basic reading and writing skills of pre-schoolers. Children become familiar with the letters and their sounds. Apart from that, kids are encouraged to trace or write the alphabets, which have the additional benefit of improving their motor skills.
There is an Activities section too, for evaluating how much the child has learnt and retains in his mind. It incorporates a drag and drop activity that strengthens picture-letter association. Other sections include Blast the Rocket for recognising lower case alphabets through auditory association, Matching Activity that emphasizes on visual association and recognition and Rhythm & Rhyme, which hugely improves your child’s speech, literacy, reasoning, physical, emotional, and social development.
As the name implies, this app encourages children to learn word pairs with opposite meanings such as “hot and cold”, “up and down” and “good and bad”. Children show a tendency to learn certain types of words easily. Opposites are one such concept they grasp quickly. They help children to differentiate and distinguish the world around them. This app includes about 50 opposite words and a game. Opposites challenge and fine tune the cognitive skills of your children.
Songs are one of the easiest ways for children to learn because they love the rhythm and rhyme. Rippling Rhymes is an app that includes a collection of short and rhythmic songs that make it easy for your children to learn and memorize. Each song is unique and has a special theme. But all of these songs are like stories with a beginning and an end. They are entertaining and add value by incorporating new vocabulary, concepts of alphabets, numbers etc. There are beautiful illustrations, animations, an intuitive user interface and excellent audio quality.
These are the apps that TinyTapps have developed to help pre-schoolers learn more about English Language. Next week, we will explain about the Math/Numbers apps by TinyTapps.
