@Reks: Educational iOS Applications

“We love this app because it is an interactive and engaging blend of great fun and learning”

Caboose – Learn Patterns and Sorting with Letters, Numbers, Shapes and Colors App is a game scenario that provides practice and reinforcement for sorting and patterning skills. It is a fun activity for children as they complete activities to travel across the U.S. or Europe on a train. We love this app because it is an interactive and engaging blend of great fun and learning. (Julene Reed in www.appolearning.com)

@Reks’ patterns and sorting app has been recently reviewed by Julene Reed, an educator and consultant with twenty–two years of experience as an administrator, integration specialist, and teacher. Julene is currently the Director of Academic Technology for St. George’s Independent School in Memphis, TN.

According to Julene the Caboose App is a great cognitive exercise that aids analytic logic and thinking. She also noticed that there are many different opportunities for customization in this app, allows change as ability levels increase, thus avoiding frustration or boredom and keeping students engaged. Her final verdict:

Kids will love this app because it is a game with embedded learning. They will want to get their train to the end of its journey, and on the way, they will learn lots of patterning and sorting skills.
