Early Literacy App of the Week

MGOL Mother Goose on the

                Loose

“Mother Goose on the Loose” is an award-winning early literacy program that is used in libraries around the country. The use of books, songs, nursery rhymes, art, play, and puppets helps parents strengthen early literacy development and school readiness in their children.

This app brings those activities to the iPad in a gentle learning environment perfectly suited for children to explore with their parents. Sing along with songs and nursery rhymes while moving objects and characters on the “felt board” backdrop. In addition, you can use the characters and backgrounds to create original stories or songs together.

The app also provides suggestions for learning activities to extend the fun.

Available for iPads, iOS 6.1+. Free.

Early Literacy App of the Week

Musical  Abby Monkey Musical Puzzle

This app features six puzzles. Each is themed around a different musical instrument. Once a puzzle is assembled, children can watch and listen as the instrument plays familiar tunes. They can also compose and record their own music

While not designed to teach music theory or even note reading, this simple app provides a great introduction to music and sounds that will inspire kids to look for more when they are ready.
