App of the Week: Busy bee storytellers


app-beeApp name: Reader Bee’s First Story Maker

What is it? The Honeycomb Keyboard lets young children see and write rhyming words (cat, hat, sat) and sight words (with, the, and, is) with one swipe through the letters, helping them learn to read as well as write.

Best for: Ages 5 and younger

Price: $0.99

Requirements: iOS 8.0 or later

Features: Kids can browse through dozens of fanciful pictures to inspire their tale-telling and jump-start their spelling. Once a picture of an octopus, a strawberry or a violin has been pulled into the story, tapping changes it magically into the spelled word ‘octopus’, ‘strawberry’ or ‘violin’. Even more surprising, type, “c a t” and pop – a cat will appear where that word was. Kids and grownups also can use the Honeycomb keyboard in many other iPad apps – email, notes, messages and more.
