Baby Hear & Read {An App Review & Giveaway}

Hi All!

I'm back as promised with an app review and giveaway! Today's app is the Baby Hear & Read - Verbs App from Baby Kids Zone. I've been using this app for a while now in therapy to teach my kiddos about using different verbs....and they LOVE it! Baby Kids Zone provided me with the app to review, but the opinions are all mine. They were also nice enough to give me several codes to giveaway. I'll give away a few below, and the rest will be given over the next few weeks as part of my Christmas giveaways!

When you open the app, you get this screen. There are nine pages of animals that all demonstrate different verbs.

When you click on a picture, the animal makes a sound and demonstrates the verb.

As each verb is spelled, the letters turns red.

You can change the settings by pressing the "unlock" button. With the settings, you can turn the text, voice, spelling voice, music, and animal sounds on or off.

You can also change the number of animals on each page (3x3=9 animals, 2x2=4 animals).

This app is fairly simple, and that's exactly why I like it! Sometimes when apps have a lot going on, my students get distracted pressing buttons, and we lose sight on what we are working on. This app has adorable animals that teach all kinds of practical, everyday verbs. Some of them are even funny (stink!) You can also turn the reading off and use the app to teach animals and animal sounds!

This app sells for $.99 in the iTunes store. Try to win one below, and let me know what you think!
 Good luck!

  1. I will use the app to teach verbs to my students in therapy. Have them each demonstrate the move after watching the animals!

  2. I would use this app to teach verb tense and expanding utterances to complete sentences.

  3. I would use this app to teach verbs, and as a fun reward for my school-age students with cognitive delays.
