iPads are helping preschool students at Badger Mountain Elementary School improve their language skills. “iPads are one of the instructional tools we’re utilizing to help get these children ready for kindergarten,” explains teacher Michelle Fickle. “The apps are colorful and engage the young children in practicing the skills they’re learning such as letter recognition, phonemic awareness, and vocabulary.”
The preschoolers also work on their language skills by reciting nursery rhymes, reading books aloud, singing songs, and creating charts. “The iPads help reinforce what my students are learning through all these other activities,” adds Fickle.
