Touchtronic Letters Review and Giveaway
Junior Learning has done it, again! They have a fantastic new educational product, perfect for any student, homeschooling, or not.
(We are still loving and using Junior Learning Smart Trays in our homeschool.)
Touchtronic Letters are a new innovation from Junior Learning. The first classroom resource to work on an iPad. Touchtronic Letters are the first tangible alphabet that interacts with an iPad surface, combing the physical and digital worlds of learning.
Included are 26 letters color-coded with consonants in blue and vowels in red. The supporting free App (available from the iTunes store) includes games for teaching letter recognition, phonemic awareness and word building. There are also exciting animations which reward children as they complete each different level. (Read more here.)
At this time Touchtronic Letters app has three games to choose from, but Junior Learning is planning to to provide extensions to the apps, new CVC games, and then bring out some physical numbers in another set. These products are under development now.
We can't wait.
Touchtronic Letters are geared toward five and/or six-years olds, but my 8-year old really enjoyed reviewing the product. The games were easy for her, which made her feel very good.
