My neighbor friend Linda runs a small preschool center where she helps 3-4 year old kids prepare for regular school. She starts her teaching during the summer and she always has a handful of cute little boys and girls ready to learn their numbers and alphabet. 


I came across this great app in #iTunes called ABC Phonics and Tracing. Developed by Kids Academy, I knew this would be good. I downloaded it and showed it to my friend. We played with the app and found out that it is an interactive program that allows children to use 3 of their 5 senses (sight, hearing and touch) to learn their alphabet and numbers. 


The app allows children to learn to read and write by tracing the numbers or letters on the screen. The colors are bright and lively with a catchy background music. What I like most is the words of encouragement and praise at every attempt to complete the task. It will surely make the kids more confident of themselves and take pride in their accomplishment. 


We asked Linda's nephew, Gabriel to try the app. His eyes lit up and his smile was priceless! Linda downloaded the app too and she said she will include it in her lesson plan for her summer learners. It is going to be more fun to learn ABCs this year!
