What's New in Version 2.0.5
I would not recommend this app for the classroom. This app doesn’t allow the students to move the fish or trace the numbers, letters or shapes that are shown. If this app is changed so it allows students to trace the letters, numbers and shapes it would be more helpful. With that being said, I think there should be a menu to let the student or teacher choose what activity the student should be working on. Also, this app would be much better if the teacher was able to monitor the students progress. I also didn’t like how this app didn’t allow students to write the numbers, letters or shapes. It lacked interaction. I think these are all good and beneficial concepts for a student to know, however it would be a more affective app if it was more interactive.
Child speech model
I would not recommend purchasing this app because of the child during the 'play' portion. They have several speech sound errors. The correct pronunciation of the sounds would be more appropriate model for children learning to speak.
Just bought this and I find the letter formations (by fish) to be imprecise. Also, there is no "game" element to hold the child's interest.
