Grasshopper Apps has Freed Another App – Little Reader

Grasshopper apps makes awesome apps that can be customized in a number of ways for students. You can record and import your own pictures, create a favorites list and choose specific content in the settings.  We use the apps at school for a range of students who are emergent learners of different ages. They are offering another new app…

Little Reader is a new app created by Grasshopper apps offering matching of four letter words and pictures. It iscompatible with iPad, iPod, iPhone and currently offered for free.  Here are a few screen shots of the Little Reader app:

Pictures and words are categorized alphabetically and can be customized in the settings by deleting some words and also adding your own. Little Reader offers a clean interface with real pictures that supports the needs of  our special education students. I have a students who are working on functional life skills that this app could easily be used to make an activity featuring environmental signs, household, clothing, hygiene and grooming items geared to the needs of the student. When trialed creating a customized word list, the app accepted three and four letter words within the app.

Add this and other Grasshopper apps as Little Speller, Little Patterns, Kids Puzzles as learning apps for your OT iTool Kit and share it with the teachers and therapists you work with!

Thanks Grasshopper apps!
