As she was playing with this app, I of course starting thinking about uses for my therapy sessions. Obviously, using this app would work with older and younger children who are working on language skills; I want romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers and Ranch Dressing (choice making, vocabulary building, colors, grouping like items etc or social/pragmatic skills "What kind of lettuce do you want? Do you want olives on your salad?) but it REALLY would work well for our picky eaters. I thought I'd try it out on my daughter. I told her to create a salad with two new things she's never tried before and "save" the recipe (really neat part of the app is that they can save, name and share their creations) and we would shop for the "fixins" this weekend and give it a try. Excited doesn't even begin to describe her reaction. "Can we do more than one?" I think I actually heard heavenly harps or maybe it was my beloved Harry Connick Jr......no matter, it was amazing whoever it was!
I just wanted to share this as I know the weekend is a time where you can "explore" some fun things and learn some new skills. I know I will be purchasing ALL of the "More _____" apps because so far, they have been well worth the .99! YES, you read it right....NINETY-NINE cents.
I am over the moon for this line of apps and I still can't believe how much the Ipad has changed my therapy and the enjoyment for my kids. We learn together and have so much fun. Sorry to all of you parents who are now being asked for "Miss. Jennifer's new toy (true story....got a text today from one of my moms)
So which apps are YOU going to get and how do YOU plan to use them? I'd love to hear your ideas and stories.
