Are you looking for a perfect iPad app this SUMMER to keep your kids engaged with writing and reading? The “Write to Read” experience is based on the idea of ‘learning to read by writing’ and ‘writing and discovering’ where the child uses his current level of written language abilities to create text to accompany pictures taken with the iPad camera. For the younger set, the app features a recording function so stories can be expressed verbally and subsequently put into writing with the assistance of a teacher, parent or older sibling. The end result is a DIGITAL BOOK, created by the child that can be proudly shared with family and classmates all through the summer time. The app is developed by Danish primary school teacher Janus Madsen who has more than 15 years of experience in teaching young children to read and write. Seems interesting right? Here is a video of “Write to Read” app in action: (Animated introduction film (American English) - YouTube). Don’t forget to check it out!
Write to Read app ($6.99, Compatible with iPad, requires iOS 4.3 or later.) is available for sale at the iTunes Store (http://bit.ly/YqcPEg).
