Blogger BabyDashCo loves it when her kids are learning something. She has bought them books and flashcards in the past, but they end up all over the house, thrown away, or ripped up, she said. In our generation things are changing. Everything is becoming digitized, which is great. It's less mess for parents and more Eco friendly. Super Duper Publications has a wide array of learning apps to download to your Ipod, Ipad or Iphone.
BabyDashCo reviewed some of the educational apps offered by Super Duper Publications.
These educational social skills apps for your Iphone, Ipod or Ipad has all 56 illustrated picture cards (plus audio of each card text). It's really simple to use. It's actually the same concept as using a flashcard, but without the mess. Select the cards you want your kids to see, and have them ask and answer questions about what happens before, during, and after school. The prompts include WH questions like, “Who is your principal?” and “How To Give your Dog a bath?”
Each student looks at an illustration, and either reads the prompt or touches the screen to listen to the prompt. The child then gives a verbal response. After each answer, tap the green (correct) or red (incorrect) button to score the student’s verbal response. Move to the next card by sliding the card currently on the display screen to the side.
To move to the next player, tap the bar at the top of the screen and select a name. You can also advance cards and players automatically by selecting the auto-advance option in the game options menu. You can leave a game temporarily and return to it later by selecting pause game from the menu. To return to the game, select continue game from the main menu. When you finish, view the results in a graph, and print or email your data.
The "WH' Questions At School Fun Deck focuses on questions at a school setting such as “Where is your school?” and “What are your school rules?” This app is one of BabyDashCo's kids favorites.
How? Fun Deck focuses on questions on every day tasks.
“How to eat a banana?” and “How to change a flat tire?”
What would you do at school if ... This app includes questions like, “What would you do if … you forgot your homework?” and “What would you do if … your classmate teased you about the new shirt you wore?”
I love this app, because the kids get to use their imagination.
Name That Category! Fun Deck by Super Duper Publications.
Select the cards you want students to see, and have them fill in the blank to practice describing, categorizing, and organizational skills. The prompts include fill-in-the-blank statements like, “A car, bike, and train are ___.” and “A sandwich, pizza, and French fries are ___.”
Who uses Super Duper Publication Apps?
Parents and therapists have been turning to Super Duper for on-the-go lessons anytime for language arts, special needs or to monitor progress. However, with their mobile apps, Super Duper has created something that transformed from “useful” to “some of the most powerful educational apps for teaching reading and supporting differentiation for students with disabilities,” says Scholastic Instructor magazine; who recently named its 50 Fab Apps for Teachers. Included in that list was Super Duper Publications, not once, but three times!
• In the category of Language Arts, Super Duper StoryMaker makes the list of just 7 recommended apps for mobile devices.
• Erasing the need to carry sets of articulation cards or language worksheets from classroom to classroom is Super Duper's WH Question Cards Pro in the Special Needs category.
These two apps, StoryMaker and WH Question Cards Pro, also won the Spring 2013 Seal of Approval from The National Parenting Center this week.
• Of the 4 Classroom Management Apps, Super Duper's Data Tracker makes the "fab" list. Which allows you to monitor students’ progress through a subject area with the tap of a finger.
Super Duper Publications offers many more learning apps! You can check them all out in their APP section on their web site or you can download them from Itunes. These apps are a great way to learn at home or on the go with out the hassle of flash cards which always gets lost or destroyed within days.
