Give your little one an app they’ll love with the newest educational app from Learning Touch! More than just a game, First Words Valentine is a powerful educational tool for toddlers and preschoolers.

If your child is old enough to ask for your phone, they’re old enough for First Words Valentine!

First Words Valentine teaches kids about letters, how letters relate to words, and even how to spell words. This app is toddler-tested and approved, with a user-interface designed specifically for the littlest of fingers. The game includes beautiful illustrations, each matched with entertaining sounds and high-quality recordings of letters and words.

Kids can play the game by themselves, but they also enjoy bringing their adults along, talking about the pictures, saying the names of the letters, and watching the pictures spin around and sound off.

This free application includes 8 Valentine’s Day themed words such as love, heart, cupid and kiss! We’ve also included the same great options available in our other First Words apps so you can tailor the app to your child’s needs. If you like First Words Valentine, you can keep your toddler laughing and learning with our other First Words applications.

Here’s what educators and reviewers have said about our First Words apps:

“First Words is an app that teaches letters and words in fun and interactive way. Very easy to use these apps will help support your little ones learning with great illustrations and bright colors. Each app supports kids learning and encourages kids to explore and discover by revealing, rewarding and teaching.”
— Fun Educational Apps

“Excellent – As a teacher, I love this game! Just what technology was meant to do!”
— iTunes Review

“This app has great settings that let you control the level of difficulty for the child – either with lots of hints or almost none at all. The letters slide nicely into each word and when completed the child is rewarded by having the pictured animal enlarge and animate briefly.”
–Carisa Kluver at Digital Stortyime

“First Words Deluxe is a very straightforward word-building game. Words are either said letter by letter as they are dragged into the appropriate gray boxes or, if chosen in the settings, a smaller set of words can be sounded out with phonics. This makes this game a treat for both pre-readers and early spellers.”
–Common Sense Media

“Looking to guide your toddler towards recognizing letters and how to spell words up to eight letters long? Then First Words Deluxe might be just what you are looking for. This pre-reader and spelling application encourages vocabulary development in a wide range of categories such as: vehicles, animals, at home, colors, and shapes.”
–Andrea Gardner at Applicable2u

“First Words is a great app — as I said at the time, ‘Leo loves First Words because it’s fun and easy. I love it because he’s learning to spell words, and the interface makes that learning error-free.'”
—Shannon Des Roches Rosa at Squidalicious

Silly Sentence Articulation for Speech Therapy

“Silly Sentence Articulation for Speech Therapy” is developed by Erik X. Raj. It is normally $4.99 and is on sale for $2.99 for a limited time. It does not contain in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad and requires iOS 8.0 or later.

Created by Erik X. Raj, M.S., CCC-SLP, Silly Sentence Articulation is an interactive app for your iPad, iPad mini, iPhone, and iPod touch that features a collection of over 500 silly sentence questions (also known as absurdities) designed for speech-language pathologists to use with individuals who exhibit difficulty producing the following speech sounds: S, Z, R, L, S/R/L Blends, SH, CH, and TH.

Features:

-Tons of content: with just a tap of a finger, children and clinicians can discover over 500 sound specific silly sentences and questions that are perfect for the speech therapy setting.

-Hear the sentence: each silly sentence has an exciting narrative audio component to it.

-Hear an answer: each silly sentence has an example audio response that children get a kick out of.

-Child-friendly interface: simple and intuitive, a wonderful experience from start to finish.

Information:

With over 2 hours worth of fun and exciting audio questions and answers, Silly Sentence Articulation will trigger a tremendous amount of fantastic conversation in your speech therapy room. It is intended to aid in the remediation of articulation impairments, as well as auditory and language difficulties because clients often need practice in more than one area of communication.

Introducing children to these silly sentences serves two purposes – both necessary in effective problem solving and decision-making. First, it helps them become more aware of the need to logically analyze information and apply common sense reasoning to communication. Second, it helps them to begin to recognize absurdity as being a key component of humor, which assists in building emotional balance and intellectual growth.

The silly sentence format within this application is a departure from traditional articulation drill work and is effective for students ages 6 and up. Because of this unique format, clients enjoy saying the silly sentences to their friends and classmates outside of the speech therapy room, further practicing their communication skills and thereby facilitating the sometimes difficult stage of carrying over newly-acquired skills. By reviewing the silly sentences with the client, paraprofessionals in the classroom and/or parents at home can reinforce the client’s skills while sharing a fun activity. Practicing communication skills in environments outside the speech therapy setting increases opportunities for generalization of communication skills.

I invite you to use the content within this application to spice up your speech therapy sessions. The silly sentences are intended to initiate exciting and lively conversations. Every silly sentence has the potential for leading almost anywhere. Even a silly sentence that appears simple can trigger a unique thought process and complex response.

Regardless of when, where or how these silly sentences are used within the speech therapy session, one thing is certain, children (as well as clinicians) will have a blast talking about them . . . and in the process they will continue to practice the correct pronunciation of their sounds at the spontaneous conversation level. Let your imagination run wild and have fun with this therapy material!
