***** 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
Wish it had a "lock" feature!
My son, who has Downs' Syndrome, LOVES Teach Me Kindergarten and Teach Me 1st Grade. He is so smart but needs a lot of repetition to make the learning stick in his mind. I love how this game uses repetition and rewards. He responds so well to the soft-spoken mouse teacher. Her words of encouragement sound very genuine. And he loves earning coins so he can buy stickers and fish food.
The only feature I wish this app had is a lock feature to keep the child "in" the game and not allow them to wander into other functions on my iphone. My son has deleted pages from my notepad, emails, contact info, photos and has rearranged my settings. Sometimes I let him play the games in the car while I'm driving or doing chores around the house. I can't possibly watch everything he is doing. I know he is just exploring and doesn't do anything with malintent. I want him to learn and enjoy the games but can't afford to lose any important info off my phone.
My little sister really loves the British Voice on the preschool one if it was possible to get that on the other ones that would just make her day great app otherwise ❤️👌🏻
Horrible app, not worth the money
I want a refund. This app doesn’t give you the ability to choose a subject or a game. It’s lazy. Waste of 2$ and frustrated my 6 year old within minutes of playing. I wanted to find a game that would help him practice subtracting. This is not it
Developer Response ,
You can turn off specific learning topics in settings. From the home screen tap on Settings. Then tap on a player and scroll down to TEACHME TOPICS. Use the switches to turn off the subjects you want to disable.
