Signing Numbers and Colors with ASL Videos
by Interactive Touch, Inc.
In any home or school, reading individually or as a group is apart of ones daily routine. No matter how this time is spent whether it be with little books, big books or educational videos, a number of key academic concepts are reinforced. Come build your virtual bookshelf by downloading a free app called Interactive Touch Books – For Kids. Designed by developers, Interactive Touch, Inc., their library of big and little books and interactive videos are for children as young as 18 months and as old as 10 years of age. Reading and viewing can take place on your iPhone or iPad device running iOS 4.0 or later. An app that promotes reading through wonderful animation and a great deal of interaction. Young and old readers will be very content. With your free download of Interactive Touch Books – For Kids, readers will be provided with a few free books and videos. With a simple stop at the in-app store or online bookstore, parents can enlarge their child’s bookshelf with just a few clicks. Children’s minds are like sponges, they want to learn as much as they possibly can, well why not add learning American Sign Language to their list.
Today and tomorrow (2/17 and 2/18), developers from Interactive Touch, Inc. and Spirit-led Designs are sharing a very special offer that you won’t want to miss out on. Once your device is equipped with the Interactive Touch Books – For Kids app, search the store for Signing Numbers and Colors with ASL videos. During this promotional two day event, this interactive book will only cost you .99¢. With very few interactive children’s book applications currently in the App Store that apply to understanding or learning about ASL (American Sign Language), this is a great introductory book that could spark conversations and appreciation of differences as a variety of reading and mathematical skills are being reinforced. Each page has its own story to tell as your son or daughter interacts with each as if it were an educational workbook. As your child or student experiences Signing Numbers and Colors with ASL Videos, parents and educators will be pleased to see that a “Read to Me” and a “My Narration” option have been included. This is a book that will intrigue and motivate young and old readers through multiple visits to their virtual bookshelf. With the first few exposures, have the narrator tell this number and color story as your child interacts with a few simple drags, drops and taps of objects. As children become more familiar with words, have them choose to read the book on their own as their device records their words. This recording feature will allow users to listen back to their audio, thus building and improving upon a child’s fluency skills. While learning numbers 1-20 and brightening their colored rainbow, children will also be provided very short video clips. These video clips will teach your child how to say these same numbers and colors without any words, but rather through the power of their hands.
Signing Numbers and Colors with ASL Videos is very simply, a book with lots of surprises. Users will learn numbers and colors through words and pictures as it is taught in two languages: English and ASL. Amazingly, while at the same time it will also provide game breaks with coloring pages and matching games. The only note to the developers that Applicable2U has for a future update, would be to make the last few pages, numbers 13 – 19, less crowded and overstimulating. By using the space differently or possibly just shrinking the graphics, users will not feel overwhelmed. No matter what your child’s learning style or academic goals are, this interactive educational book is applicable to many. Applicable2U was not sure what we were going to get when downloading Signing Numbers and Colors with ASL Videos, but we were pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
