Alphabet song

I have loved Critical Thinking Press for many years! I appreciate that they have become innovative and now have this app to help young students be better prepared!! My granddaughter and I played a couple of the games and it helps me to have a better gauge what she needs to work on. Very helpful!

The only alphabet app you need!

If you only have one alphabet app, this should be it! I had tried EVERYTHING with my 4.5-year-old son, but working on letter recognition was ALWAYS like pulling teeth. The iPad was the only medium that would keep his attention for more than a minute, but every other app had at least one problem all but ruining it. (A MAJOR drawback to MANY apps are sound effects that can't be turned off; my son would deliberately choose incorrectly for the sake of hearing the funny noises. Others waste valuable time with unrelated and distracting entertainment.) Now, I just set a timer for 10 minutes 2-3 times each day, and my son HAPPILY works on this until the timer stops. It's *just* engaging enough and pure genius in its simplicity. This software led me to realize certain patterns and weaknesses that hadn't been apparent to me with other media. My son whom I had been very worried about is finally showing real steady progress, and I have The Critical Thinking Company to thank. I HIGHLY recommend this app for any preschooler or kindergartener. Get it; you won't regret it!
