Week 10 Blog

         Being a Special Education major, I take a particular interest to apps that are visually appealing, simple and engaging.  This week, my two favorite apps are Shape-O! ABC’s and Spot the Dot.  This YouTube video provides basic instructions on how to operate and play Shape-O.  I find a great liking to this app because it is simple to navigate through, has the option to change the color of the screen (and colors always appeal to kids) and also, the word is written out under the puzzle of the picture.  Having the word underneath the picture they are working on will help children begin to associate the picture with the word.  Spot the Dot by David A. Carter, focuses on colors and fine motor skills.
