One of My Favorite Apps for Kindergarten

Endless Alphabet is a powerful letter recognition and vocabulary building app for the iPad. Plus the graphics, sounds, and the way students can interact with this is priceless. When students tap on a letter to drag it into the correct placement within the word, each letter makes its own unique and fun phonetic sound. The kids love it, plus it teaches them great new vocabulary. One of my favorite stories associated with this app is when I did this activity with one of my kindergarten classes and one of the little girls came and told me the following week that she burped at dinner and politely told her family, “I’m so sorry for the belch.” Her mom and dad looked at her quizzically and asked, “When did you learn that word for the word burp?” To which she replied, “In technology with the iPad.” Purely awesome.
