Beginning Apps for Modeling Joint Media Engagement: Recommendations by Emily Lloyd

In a conversation on the LittleeLit Google Group about apps to use to show parents how to use apps with their kids, the inspiring Emily Lloyd suggested the following apps. What other apps might work well in storytime? Join the discussion!

  1. Finger Paint with Sounds (free–also for storytime)
  2. Lazoo: Squiggles! (free)
  3. OnceAppon (free–could also use in storytime–could all make avatar together)
  4. Endless Alphabet (expensive but worth it–also for storytime)
  5. My A-Z (find under iPhone apps–free–I also use this in storytime)
  6. Toca Kitchen Monsters (free)
  7. Toca Tailor Fairy Tales (free)
  8. Toca Town OR My PlayHome Stores
  9. Hideout: Early Reading (free)
  10. Sock Puppets (free, a little challenging at first, but then a lot of fun–can also use in storytime)
  11. Sago Mini Doodlecast 

Edit: Emily says that Sago Mini Doodlecast should be on the list, too, so it’s #11 on this top ten list 🙂

And, if you like felt/flannel boards: Felt Board: Mother Goose on the Loose (free, storytime)
