Another product that caught my eye at the Atlanta EdExpo was Junior Learning’s Touchtronic game. These award-winning learning apps for kids combine the physical and digital worlds into one. Perfect for classroom or home use, Touchtronic Letters and Numbers provide preschool and early education students hands-on learning. The apps are free to download for iPad users in the App Store.
I received a product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are mine alone.
While we are a tech loving family, our youngest son prefers a physical approach to learning. Touchtronic learning games really speak to him. The Touchtronic Letters package includes all 26 letters of the alphabet; consonants are in blue while the vowels are in red, making it easier for kids to differentiate the letters. It also includes a handy blue pouch for easy storage.
This simple approach to teaching helps children learn their letters, sounds and build simple words. The Touchtronic ABC’s App provides 3 games in 1: Mystery Door, Letter Bubbles, Word Machine. The app rewards children for progress made throughout the app, making learning exciting.
Below L is playing Word Machine where he places a missing letter on the iPad screen to complete a word. I like that the letters are fairly large on the screen and include a picture that corresponds with the word. Once he completes that word the machine scrambles the letters and creates a new word puzzle for him to complete.
I’m really impressed with the engagement and learning adventure that Touchtronic’s provides. This is really helping L with his phonics learning. Because we are focusing on reading, we have not begun the Touchtronic Numbers just yet. I can only imagine how successful that program will be once we switch gears. However, I did want to include details about Touchtronic Numbers.
Touchtronic Numbers introduces children to numbers, counting, matching and simple sums. It includes numbers 0-9 and 6 equation symbols. The numbers are color-coded in purple while the equations are in orange. This set also includes a handy blue bag for easy storage.
The corresponding app, TouchTronic 123’s, is free to download from the App Store. The app includes 3 games: Counting Train, Value Handcar and Grain Factory Sum.
If you are looking for preschool education at its best – I recommend checking out Junior Learning Touchtronic Letters and Numbers games. You can find their products at JuniorLearning.com or amazon.com.
