Pair by Nature

This week, I found a great app that is **FREE for a limited time!**  I'm not sure how long it will be free, so go grab it if you can.
The app is called Pair by Nature and is geared toward the preschool crowd.  I can see myself using it with some of my students with developmental delays also.


This app is really simple and engaging.  With this app, students can learn about logically related items.  It also helps them to develop visual perception skills, cognitive skills, and language skills.  The app developer, Step by Step describes that "children will engage in simple activities, such as matching, pairing, ordering, grouping, and sorting. This allows them to practice essential skills, such as: categorization, conceptualization, generalization, abstraction, memory, language, math, visual perception, fine motor, accuracy, attention, and focus. They will learn about shapes, colors, animals, fruit, vegetables, clothing, tools, vehicles, furniture, professions, toys, etc., — all while playing."



When you begin the app, you can select the user by clicking the smiley face icon.  Then, you can select the lesson that you would like to target.  There are 20 different lessons to choose from.  I started with #1 which had the student matching animals to the food they eat.



Here are examples of two other lessons available:



I like this app because I can keep data on each student that utilizes the app.



There are also fun add-ons such as coloring pages, 

a sticker book,
and a memory game.


I think this app is great for my students, and think that you will like it too!

  2. three cheers for this lovely blogger for imparting such great information about this wonderful app and how it might of great help. i know the as we are proceeding in our lives technology is becomong like our second hand but i personally for one am not a big fan of children becoming addicted to them in such early ages. i would rather have them learn it through physical activites
