***** Readers' Choice Top 10 at SmartAppsForKids.com!!!
TeachMe: 1st Grade is the third installment in the popular TeachMe series of educational apps for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. TeachMe: 1st Grade teaches four age-appropriate subjects to first grade children: sight words, addition, subtraction and spelling. TeachMe: 1st Grade's unique TeachTech character recognition engine interprets a child's written answers, helping to reinforce writing skills while teaching math and spelling.
TeachMe: 1st Grade keeps children engaged with a unique reward system where children earn coins by playing learning games at the school. They can move around the rest of TeachTown to spend their coins on fun rewards. Children can collect stretchable shapes at the Shape Store, visit their virtual aquarium at the Fish Store, and decorate different scenes at the art store. The simple and intuitive user interface is designed to be child friendly, which allows children to play without help from an adult. An animated teacher (Mimi Mouse) gives verbal instructions and feedback to encourage the child to learn and succeed! In addition, the learning screens are colorful, fun and rotate between four different subjects so children don't get bored.
TeachMe: 1st Grade is the only iPhone app which reads your child's writing using TeachTech, 24x7digital's writing recognition engine. Children write their answers for math and spelling questions and TeachMe: 1st Grade reads them using TeachTech. If your child needs help, TeachMe: 1st grade will show them how to write the correct answer including the proper stroke order. TeachMe also includes a virtual keyboard input option.
Each child has an achievements screen which motivates and encourages learning by showing progress and levels for each topic. Parents can use this screen to quickly see progress of their child. Parents can select which subjects they want, set different difficulty levels, and even choose specific questions. Parents can also review performance history for each subject to check how their child is doing.

Ratings and Reviews
Great game but one major problem...
This is a great game but the way it shows a wrong answer with the red "X" and negative sound effect needs to be changed. It's too aggressive for small children and makes them feel bad. Getting a wrong answer isn't as bad as not trying and the negative result makes them afraid and anxious to even try.
A simple "uh oh, try again" (with a sad emoticon) or something friendly like that would be much more effective and less destructive method of getting the message across, and would reinforce the need to keep trying.
Better yet, providing the ability to modify the sound to one of a preset bunch or even providing a custom sound that the child responds well too would be ideal.
Please do so, my kids have learned a lot from this set of games but are getting very close to giving up on them because of this problem.
It stops working the hand writing part
Not a friendly app for 1st grader
My son is very good at maths. He counts very fast but this app requires to write the answer and letters must be in perfect shape.He is frustrated to use this app. Not a good thinking from app designers. For math answer should be selectable.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
