The first app is Friendly Shapes by TabTale Production. This application is actually a really neat book!
Also available on each page is the option to open games. As you can see you have option 1 - find the item, option 2 - counting, option 3 - jigsaw puzzle, option 4 - painting, and option 5 - memory match.
The next application is Shapes by Toddler Teasers
As you can see when you open up this application you immediately have 4 main options to choose from.
Option 1 - Quizzing
A group of shapes will appear (field of three) and a voice over occurs "find heart" then the patient points to the heart.
Option 2 - Flash Cards
Pretty self explanatory - flash cards of shapes. Don't forget you can also target colors here!
Option 3 - Toy Box
(Sorry about the formatting). Option 3 is the toy box that only has one game available, sad day! Five balloons initially appear. Once you hit a balloon then POP a shape comes out and falls down. Fun and interactive though again a bit disappointing that this is the only game in the toy box!
Option 4 - Puzzle
Our final application is Toddler Puzzle - Shapes by technolio.com
As you can see here you have options to change the difficulty of the application (and the language) which I find very nice being it a free application!
In the right hand corner you will see an octagon with a question mark. The program will say "find the octagon." Then the patient will have the opportunity to find it's match. Now I like to make this a bit more challenging on my iPad and I will cover up that top right corner with my hand and turn the activity into an identification task.
Once you match so many shapes then you have the reward of completing a simple puzzle!
What kind of activities and/or applications do you like to use for teaching shapes?
