Cursive Touch and Write by Fizzbrain LLC is the counter-part to Touch and Write. The only difference between the two is that, as the name suggests, this app teaches your child how to write in cursive instead of print. It costs $2.99 to download and there are no in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Touch and Write by Fizzbrain LLC is a great app for children learning to write their letters (both uppercase and lowercase). This app is very customizable. You can change the writing utensil from lemon jello to chocolate pudding to ketchup. Last year, I made a video about this app. It costs $2.99 to download and there are no in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Abby Sight Words Games & Flash Cards for Reading Success by CFC s.r.o. has six games (Word Machine, Gears, Bingo, Memory Games, Spelling, and Flashcards) in order to teach your child their sight words for Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and 3rd Grade. Until you unlock everything, you can only play Word Machine and Gears with only the Pre-K sight words. It is free to download and costs $1.99 to unlock all the features, which I highly recommend you do. There are no other in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
Sight Words by Photo Touch by GrasshopperApps.com is a highly customizable app, making it great for parents. This app works on a child’s sight words when a voice says “little” with “big”, “put”, “run”, and “little” on the screen. Your child touches the word he or she believes in “little”. By default, the app contains a list of words for Preschool, Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, and Third Grade, but you can make your own custom list as well. It is free to download and there are no in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
