Early Literacy App of the Week

Builditup  Build It Up

Build it Up is a deceptively simple app that allows toddlers and preschoolers the chance to work on their visual perception and fine motor skills by constructing towers, figures, and buildings from the ground up.

Math concepts such as size, top/bottom, and before/after are also emphasized in this app.

Children will receive immediate feedback. An incorrect block placement is returned to the starting point, and solving the puzzle gets a cheer. This app is fun by itself and is easily enhanced by engaged caregivers.

Available for iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone. A demo version is free, and the full game costs $2.99.
