Week Six -- March 28th -- iPad Project
Overview before the week;
This coming week we will focus on counting again with Jay*. It is easy to see that Jay* understands the concept of counting and knows his numbers, but we are still working on making sure they are numerically in the correct order, as well as one-to-one correspondence.
This week Jay* worked on his counting skills using the Pirate Fun 123.
This application works on numerically counting to 10 in the correct order. The app is more of an interactive picture maker, however instead of drawing, the child using number counting to connect the dots. As you connect the dots, it not only highlights in red the next number, but it says the number aloud. Each set of 10 dots you connect, it adds another item to the picture. Jay* really like this app, he started by enjoying the pictures, but after working with the app, he eventually started counting the numbers out loud with the app. This was great because it showed me he was understanding what he was doing. And after repetition, I asked him to count to 10, and he got all of the numbers correct in the correct numerical order. I would rate this app 5 stars, for it truly worked on the skills he needed.
