If you are a parent of a child 2 years plus I am sure that you have heard of Justin Fletcher aka Mr Tumble from Something Special on the BBC.Justin uses varies characters and songs to connect with the children and engage them into the program.
Justin Fletcher and his array of characters are brought to life via a new range of apps in Justin’s world
- Justin’s world Goldilocks - an interactive adaptation of the story as Justin plays all the characters
- Justin’s world Letter sounds – pick a letter that matches the sound a drag and drop game to help introduce phonics
- Justin’s world Jigsongs – puzzle songs with a special musical twist.
- Justin’s world of animal sounds – join in with Justin’s hilarious impressions of animals
My son Zak who is 3 years old loves playing Justin’s world Jigsongs
Jigsongs is a delightful app that encourages the child to drag and drop the jig saw pieces on the screen to create a picture. Justin will tell you if it is the correct piece or that you need to try again. Once the child has completed the jigsaw they are rewarded with a sing along song from Justin’s character on screen. Songs such as Old Mac Donald, Twinkle, twinkle little star, The Grand old duke of York. This app for Zak has helped with his drag and drop skills on the ipad, plus spatial awareness, problem solving.
