Smarty Pants School
As a follow-up to my recent posts on getting ready for Kindergarten and teach a Child to read, I wanted to share a recent iPad App find. I had thought we hit the jackpot with ‘Teach Me Kindergarten‘, but ‘Smarty Pants School‘ is lite years ahead.
Smarty Pants School is a cool new application for the iPad that enables parents and teachers to evaluate children’s basic reading skills according to the recommendations of the National Reading Panel.
In less than 10 minutes, the Smarty Pants Assessment evaluates a child’s early reading skills in five critical areas and then offers a carefully structured series of games and activities designed to bring out the smarty pants (and giggles) in any budding reader.
The application was an instant hit with my Daughter, and even though she is only four, it was interesting to see how seriously she took the evaluation. I suggest that anyone with Children learning to read take a peek.
