Ratings and Reviews
One major flaw
When my toddler walks away and the iPad times out, the music still plays. This is on all of the Duck Duck Moose apps we have downloaded. The apps desperately need to be updated so that the music turns off with the iPad. My toddler loves them! And other than the music issue, they are great.
Multiple teachable moments/learning opportunities
I am a speech-language pathologist and I use this app in speech therapy for a variety of goals. The students/patients get to listen to the song and play with the screen, then I turn the volume down and ask them to "show and tell" me what each animal/person, etc. on the farm is doing to practice verbs and tenses. We also describe the scene using complete sentences. The song and graphics are very motivating to the children. They begin singing along with the song and the variety of words we can use with this app give us the opportunity to practice all speech sounds. I also like how the game shows the day progress from morning to night so we can identify day/night. Duck Duck Moose games are wonderful!
I am a speech therapist in a local school district. I work with a variety of kids from k-5. I also work in our self contained classroom for kiddo's with Autism. We LOVE this APP! It is motivating and fun for my students (as well as teachers). Many of my kiddos are learning to use augmentative devices. This is a fun and educational way to teach cause and effect and so much more! We have been singing this sing in our Speech circle time over the last few years, but this adds a whole new fun and level of interaction for our kiddo's!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
