Read Across America Week
Its Read Across America Week, ending with the the birthday celebration of an all time favorite author, Dr. Seuss! I have fond memories of reading The Foot Book to my girls when they were tiny and talking about “the many many feet you meet” and moving up through all our other favorites. This week’s apps will have your child moving up the ranks for reading readiness with A to Z Alphabet Flash Cards. Then they’ll be learning the grammar basics that will set them up to be great authors with Doodle Learning English. Whatever your favorite books may be we hope you’ll take time to enjoy them with your children this week.
Good luck! Contest will close Monday, March 4th.
Disclosure: I have not personally tried these apps. The descriptions come from the developers with some minor editing (and perhaps commentary) by myself. Alternative prizes may be awarded at our discretion.
