Ar­tikPix ($29.99) Ar­tikPix fea­tures over 1,000 sound flash­cards and im­age-match­ing games that help stu­dents im­prove their ar­tic­u­la­tion. Record your ses­sions for later play­back, and see scores cat­e­go­rized by dif­fer­ent sound groups. The free ver­sion of the app gives you ac­cess to flash­card decks for a hand­ful of sounds, in­clud­ing “th,” “h,” “y,” and “w.” Let’s Name Things (Free) This is an easy-to-use app that will get stu­dents talk­ing. It pro­vides 52 il­lus­trated flash­cards that prompt chil­dren to ver­bally re­spond by list­ing things that are, for ex­am­ple, noisy, quiet, or red. It’s great for help­ing teach­ers as­sess stu­dents’ con­ver­sa­tional speech, word re­call, and cat­e­go­riz­ing skills. 4 Pics 1 Word (Free) Work on word re­call and as­so­ci­a­tion by show­ing stu­dents pic­tures of four ob­jects with a shared theme and ask­ing them to guess what the images have in com­mon. Though the app wasn’t orig­i­nally in­tended for ed­u­ca­tional pur­poses, it’s great at help­ing kids to look at images an­a­lyt­i­cally and use de­duc­tive rea­son­ing to find an­swers.
