Where Has My Dog Gone is a fun free eight page story book app available for iPad. It’s based on the classic song “Where Has My Dog Gone?”. On each page of this book you can hear the familiar song sung while you interact with the dog and target 2-4 core vocabulary words. The words include a good selection of prepositions and verbs:
Out In Go Stop Up Down Above Below Run Behind Front On Off Under Over Good Night
If you are keeping score at home that’s 8 words off Banajee’s First 30 words list, which is not bad for a free app! Not familiar with this list? Here it is and check it out the full list here: Excerpts from “Language Function and Early Generative Langauge”.
The animations are simple but the repetition of the song and the use of the words to control what the dog does on the screen is very motivating. Download the app today and add this to to your Appdapted for Core toolbox!
