Early Years – iPod Touch

Dec 19, 2010

These are the apps on our iPod Touches for use in the early years (K1, K2, and Grade 1) classrooms

abc PocketPhonics Lite

I think this is a great little app for the early years. You learn to form letters, hear the sounds of each letter, then blend sounds to make words at the end. The Lite version has the first sounds only, but the full version has sound blends as well. Give it a go! See here for more details on how we used with with K2.


Classic Nursery Rhymes Lite featuring Humpty Dumpty

This version only has Humpty Dumpty on it, however it is nice the way you can listen to the nursery rhyme and then put Humpty Dumpty back together again.


Create a Face! Free

This app lets you make crazy faces using various noses, mouths, face shapes etc.


Early Reader

Another app for beginning readers. It covers the basic sight words, phonics, etc and is easy to use. You can turn the voice on or off.


iSign Lite

App that shows basic American Sign Language. Free


iWriteWords Lite

Practice tracing over the letters. American-shaped letters (rounded).


Ladybug Tree SHAPES – Kids bug catching and shape learning game

A simple counting app for the early years.


Tozzle Lite – Toddler’s favorite puzzle

Great little puzzle for developing touch-pad skills. Tap and drag the pictures into the correct places. My 2 year old loves this one.


Word Magic

This app has missing letters which the kids need to select from a list to complete the word. There are a range of settings you can customize, including lowercase or uppercase letters, the missing letters at the beginning, middle or end of the word, and the length of the word (to name but a few).
