What's New in Version 1.4
Very engaging early reader app. Kids hunt for clues in different scenes. Verbal directions are easy to read and kids can use a dictionary for words they don't know. Great for teaching position words such as "beside" and "below". I have a couple of suggestions for improvement: It is a bit slow, there is not much of a reward when you find the final clue and the dictionary is not very kid friendly. It looks like standard AAC images. Kids would rather see cute animals or toys than plain boxes to illustrate the concepts.
So Much Fun!
This is a simple and engaging app that all of the little ones will love! The clues are simple enough to solve which helps to hold the player's interest. The beginning vocabulary is great for my kindergarten students. The treasure hunts can be solved in a short time, so this can be used as a reward when only a few minutes are available. It's so easy to increase the number of clues and the difficulty of the vocabulary. I recommend this app for kindergarten and first grade students.
This is a great app to use to engage readers who need help with sight word vocabulary and prepositional words/phrases, such as beside, below, on,… Fun little animations appear when the correct answer is chosen. Clear directions are available, as well as information for parents. It is possible to increase the reading level difficulty if desired. Again, great practice for those readers in need.
