Winning Words LLC Releases Vocabulary Building Apps Designed by Local Teacher(March 10, 2014)
(PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Winning Words LLC announced today that it has recently released six apps to the iTunes app store for use on the Apple iPad. Winning Words founder and app creator Barri Lynn Baltic is no stranger to building vocabulary skills. As a classroom teacher in Central Islip, NY, Ms. Baltic saw the need for this kind of practice, especially when it is accompanied by a fun experience for the student. My goal was to make my match games modern by using technology, says Ms. Baltic, who is promoting the games via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and a custom website (WinningWordsApps.com).
For now, the apps are free in the iTunes App Store. I wanted to encourage people to play the games for fun and help me learn what works and what doesnt, says Ms. Baltic. For now, this is my contribution to the world of education. Ms. Baltic notes that besides many individual downloads in recent weeks, schools have downloaded the apps by the thousands for use on the schools iPads. It is very gratifying to get such a positive response from other teachers, since the idea came from games that I created for my students. On Monday February 24, 2014 Ms. Baltics Winning Words Match games were featured on eSchool News as App of the Week.

Ms. Baltic selected eReadia LLC to build the apps for her. Finding a developer willing to work with a newcomer to the field was a challenge, but she found the company through a recommendation from a friend. eReadia LLC is the premier mobile publishing solution for businesses and organizations.
Each game accommodates up to four players and there are three levels of play. Playing these games increases reading, vocabulary, and stimulates memory.
Synonym Match, Antonym Match, Singular and Plural Match, Compound Word Match, Double Letter Match, and Homophone Match from Winning Words LLC can be found in the iTunes App Store.
