I'm always looking for early reader books for the iPad, and it's even better when the apps are FREE. Super Readers has ten early reader books, all with simple text based on common sight words. Each page also has a record function. It's a great app for parents, teachers and speech-language pathologists, and it's currently FREE for a limited time! Save $3, but don't wait. We don't know how long this app will be free, so download now while you can!
Bottom Line: Looney Tunes Phonics offers grade-appropriate lessons for kids in pre-K through 3rd grade. Offers content children will not only enjoy but learn from as well. It also offers various settings and informative reports for parents to tailor the app to individual kids' needs and monitor their progress. Contains 100 different lessons with a multitude of exercises.
People often ask us here at Smart Apps For Kids to make a list of the best apps for <fill in the blank> grade. It's such a hard list to make, given the sheer number of good apps out there. However, we decided it's time to try, so here is my list for the must-have iPad apps in a classroom setting or at home for practice, starting with kindergarten. Just in time to start the school year out right!
Bottom Line: This app provides a lot of phonics practice in a simple format, covering identification of beginning, middle and ending sounds. The reading section features five early phonics readers as well. However, the interface is not fancy and there are a few content errors, and the $2.99 price is high.
