11-17-2011, 09:34 AM #1Review my App: Futaba: Word games for kids!
Hi! I'm a teacher and also a mother and I just released my very first
app called Futaba! It is a word game for young learners from ages 3 to 12 to play alone or even together. It can be played by up to 4 children at one time and my students love it!
It's perfect for children 4-8 and is ideal for supporting class room
activities of all types (or just as fun to play at home!). Futaba is a
great way to learn a 2nd language learner or you could even use it in
your history class.
The idea is simple; Each player takes a seat around the iPad and taps in
to start. The game begins as images zoom into the playing area. The
first player to match the word to the image scores a point. Win 3 rounds
and you'll be awarded a giant (but very friendly) seedling.
I hope that parents and schools around the world will see Futaba as an
inspiring and enjoyable educational tool to be used in homes and
classrooms that fulfills a multitude of educational objectives: teaching
and reinforcing vocabulary, teaching both reading and spelling skills,
and providing students with hands-on opportunities to 'code' their own

Here comes the Futaba Classroom Games edition. The classroom edition comes with a bunch of new learning games, including math, geography and Dolch sight vocabulary word games. Futaba is a ground breaking educational game that is revolutionizing the way teachers are using iPads in the classroom for K1 - K3 and preschoolers and it’s been floating around the very top of the Education category for the last 6 months. Kids, parents and teachers love it.
Both directors are available for comment (if you’d like to do a more in depth style article on INKids or this application). If you need some promo codes let me know by sending me an email at [email protected].

I just stumbled on this post, and am downloading it now. I will definitely give it a go (with my 3 year old) and do a short review.And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!
