Multiplication Rap Apps:
Learn to Multiply the fun way with D.J. Doc Roc, the Hip Hop Hamster. Each app includes a music video from Rock 'N Learn's award winning Multiplication Rap DVD and a skip counting video for the fact family. A randomized drill over the facts from x0 through x12 helps learners check their progress. Once you've learned all the facts, race the clock to see who can get the best time!
There is an app for the 2-11 multiplication tables, combining math with rap music and making learning multiplication fun!
You can order each level here for iPhone, iPad, and Android phones or tablets!

Sight Words App:
Sight words are the most frequently used words in the English language, and these apps help students learn to read them automatically. As a supplement to phonics-based strategies, Rock 'N Learn Sight Words apps boost reading and spelling skills. The first 4 apps combined present over 60 sight words through engaging characters, entertaining songs, and fun practice. Words are presented in context to help build reading comprehension. The first four apps Include all pre-primer Dolch words, the top 20 from Fry's, and more.
***The Free app has only 6 sight words on it but more will be coming soon! Check out all the Sight Words Apps here for iPad, iPod/Phone, and Android!
My Review:
We had the opportunity to review the Easy Reader Phonics 1 on our iPod Touch and it is awesome. With bright colors, and easy to use functions, my five year old loves "reading" with me on this app. She now can do the app completely on her own, and is now insisting she get her own iPod because it helps her "get smarter", then "she doesn't have to always borrow mine" She has just started learning some sight words, so I am definitely going to be getting the Sight Words apps soon too! 
If you have a little learner in your home, and they have access to an ipod, iPad, iPhone or Android device, these apps would be perfect little stocking stuffers for the upcoming Christmas season!
I highly recommend Rock N Learn Apps and give them a huge thumbs up!
