Where Has My Dog Gone was written by a retired speech-language pathologist. This app can be used by teachers, parents and speech-language pathologists as a supplement to teach the early prepositions and the early developing sound /d/ through interactive play. The children will enjoy learning prepositions by touching a sign to activate the characters to perform actions like telling the dog on the bike to ride "up" or "down" the slide. Through repeated activation of the signs the child will learn the prepositions the same way they learn that a stop sign means the driver should stop.
The prepositions and words to be learned are: stop/go, up/down, below/above, behind/in front, on/off, in/out, over/under, out/in, and the additional words run and goodnight.
Use the words beginning with the sound /d/ to teach or reinforce this early developing sound; dog, doll, down, hot dog, duck.
