Maybe we can start off by all adding one app that we really like?

    Hi All,

    We have just put 2 ipads in the hands of our Learning support team to use in their work with the Junior school children.

    They are floundering around in the iTunes store looking for apps.

    I wonder if anyone has any suggestoins to meet any of their needs:

    • To develop visual memory of correct sequence of letters in Spellwrite Essential lists or NZ high frequency words preferably within the framework of a game
    • To develop knowledge of spelling rules preferably within the framework of a game
    • To develop ability to hear sounds (in sequence) in a word and record these preferably within the framework of a game 
    • To develop automaticity in recognizing similar chunks or letter sequences within words preferably within the framework of a game.  Preferably with careful leveling.
    • To increase automatic word recognition of high frequency words

    Any ideas or tested and tried apps you could suggest would be much appreciated.

    thanks

    Klaris

    Hi,

    https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/mystery-math-town/id619404402?mt=8

    My kids love it as there are many levels, a variety of skill stes that can be addressed and a degree of strategy needed plus memory to know where you have been in the house already.
