Ok, this is right up my alley. I have already been using the itouch with my students. Two of the free apps that I use quite freqently are "Doodle Buddy" and "ABC Pocket Phonics Lite". These are great for my struggling readers. Doodle Buddy is just like a colored marker and a white sheet of paper. I have called out a word and the kids had to write which digraph they heard. For example: ship - the student would write "sh" on their itouch. They love it!! Also, the ABC Pocket Phonics is good for fine motor skills when the kids are trying to learn to write the letters and hear the sounds. So fun!! The itouch is interactive and engaging.
