We’ve spent a few weeks on the transportation theme at my Preschool. I wanted to share some of my favorite apps for this age group and topic! The best thing about vehicles is that almost all of my students are interested in things that go! That makes therapy more fun and engaging. Today I’m sharing 10 apps from my iPad that I’ve used over the last few weeks.
Each of these apps are straight from my iPad! I used each one last week for students on my caseload ages 3-6.
Trucks HD by Duck Duck Moose: Bulldozers and dump trucks move gravel, get a car dirty and then take it through the car wash, use a tow truck to haul your broken car, and be a garbage truck! This app is really well done, uses kids friendly language, and has so much vocabulary to target! $1.99
Wheels on the Bus from Duck Duck Moose This is one of my favorite apps for music. All the parts of the song are interactive. You make the windshield wipers swish and the door open and shut! $2.99
Clicky Sticky Trains: Create your own train and then make it run on the tracks! Clicky Sticky apps are like a sticker book that is interactive. Perfect for working on following directions and positional concepts.
Toca Boca Trains: Toca Boca is known for highly engaging apps. I love Trains because the child is in the engine running to the train! They pick up passengers and freight. It’s really engaging for your train loving students. $2.99
Build a Truck by Duck Duck Moose: Get creative and make a really fun truck! Talk about the parts of a vehicle and their functions! Why do you need wheels? Will a big truck be heavy or light? $1.99
Build and Play 3D: Start with all the parts to a vehicle and then build the object in 3D! Your little engineers will love this one! $2.99
Buildo Rescue Stick Book: Target emergency vehicles with the free app. Grab images to the screen to make a scene and then answer WH questions about it! Free
Rescue Helipoter HD from Top That: This app combines a book and interactive play in one! The book uses really simple words and repetitive phrases. Great for young kids. $3.99
Deep Sea Submarine from Top That: Another interactive story, this time focusing on the submarine! $3.99
Bamba Airport : Let’s go on a trip! Pick a seat, pick your snack, go through security, grab your luggage and take a flight! $2.99
