  • *Our Favorite Part*: many of the 18 games built inside the app come with verbal prompts/cues AND manipulatives.

  • Possible Whole Class Lesson Plan:

 Open “Music Match”, have students come up to the iPad one at a time. Listen to the tune, try to repeat the tune. Keep track of how many stars your class earns as a whole and try to beat the record each time.

  • Possible Small Group Lesson Plan:

 Open “Puppet Show”, have one student be “Simon” and touch the part of the body on the puppet when directed by the app. The rest of the group follows the apps directions and touches the part of their body. New “Simon” when they misunderstand the directions given (i.e. touch the puppet’s mouth instead of the ear).

  • Possible Individual Lesson Plan:

 Open “Pond Jumper”, have student work on hand-eye coordination while keeping the flying objects out of the pond by bouncing them on a lily pad. Keep track of how many stars earned and try to beat the record each time.
