Best Educational Apps for Kids

Best Educational Apps

Whether we like it or not, technology plays a big part in our children’s lives. In fact, many kids can swipe their way through an iPhone or tablet while we’re still trying to figure out how to turn it on.

Best Educational AppsWhile there’s been a lot of debate over screen time, how much or even any at all, technology can be used as a great learning tool. There are some great educational apps out there that make learning fun.

Farfaria

This app takes story time and learning to read to a whole new level. The Farfaria app can read a story to your child or you can use it to teach your child how to read. There are different themes as well as reading levels so you can match them up to your child’s skills and interests. You can try it for free, but if you decide you want it, there is a subscription fee.

Scout’s ABC Garden by Leap Frog

Leap Frog has a great host of educational toys for kids and has also joined the app world. Scout’s ABC Garden teaches kids their letters, both upper and lower case. There is also some counting included in this one. There is a fee to download it as well.

ABCmouse

Chances are you’ve seen commercials for this one on the kids’ stations. ABCmouse is highly promoted and said to really help kids learn. From math to letters to reading, this app offers a wide variety of educational options. It contains programs for kids ages 2-7, so if you have more than one child in that age group, this could be a good investment. There is a 30-day free trial period, but then you have to pay up.

The Site Word Adventure

With Common Core standards, kids are expected to learn more site words. This app helps teach more than 300 words for kids in Kindergarten through third grade. You need to pay to download this one too.

Telling Time with the Smurfs

Teaching kids to tell time is one of those common sense lessons that can be difficult. Telling Time with the Smurfs aims to make that a little easier and in a fun way. As with many apps, you need to pay to play.

Funbrain Jr.

This is a great one for pre-schoolers to learn shapes, numbers and patterns. There are a lot of games to play to help little ones get a hang of the basics. The best part is that it’s free!

Endless Alphabet

Endless Alphabet uses cute monsters to teach the ABC’s. Kids interact to build words and boost their vocabulary. They not only learn words, but also their meanings. This is another one to add to your free list.

Spelling Test Free

Let your learning bug buzz through this app as he or she becomes a better speller. Spelling Test Free is geared towards kids five and up. Practicing for the dreaded spelling bee can be fun because moms and dads can input the same words that are being taught in school. Just as the name implies, this app is free.

These are just a few of the hundreds of educational apps available. Of course, none of them should be used as a sole source for teaching and learning. There’s nothing wrong with an old fashioned book, flashcards, and some pen and paper. But, if technology can help, why not let some little fingers do the learning too?

  1. 567062 275838Nice read. I just passed this onto a buddy who was performing some research on that. He just bought me lunch since I located it for him! Thus let me rephrase: Thanx for lunch! 378303

  2. 카지노 앵벌이의 하루’란 기사를 읽고, 주위에서 본, 그리고 직접 경험(?)한 카지노란 곳의
    무서움을 다시 한번 생각해보게 된다.
    카지노 앵벌이’ 말그대로 카지노에서 돈을 모두 잃고
    카지노 안을 서성이며 딴 사람들에게 한두푼 받아 다시 또 도박하고, 말그대로 카지노에서 구걸하며 카지노에서 사는 사람들을 말한다.
    한국에 강원랜드가 있듯, 내가 사는 시드니에도 스타씨티라는 카지노가 있다.
    20 쓰는게 고작이지만, 이곳에도 도박에 미친 사람들은 허다하다.

    그렇다면 마약보다 무섭다는 도박은 왜 빠져들게 될까?
    카지노에선 현금으로 도박을 하지 않는다.
    돈으로 살수 있는 동그란 플라스틱 조각인 칩(chip)으로 게임을 하게 된다.
    카지노의 술수중 하나로 사람이 돈에 대한 감각을
    무뎌지게 한다고 한다. 실제로 돈을 걸고 게임을 하면 사람이
    보다 이성적인 돈계산을 하게 되지만, 이
    플라스틱 조각 몇개를 가지고 게임을 하다보면, 자신이 얼마나 쓰고 있는지,
    얼마나 잃는지에 대한 개념이 점점 무뎌지게 되는것이다.

    주위에 카지노를 다니거나 도박을 하는 사람과
    이야기를 해본사람들은 잘 알것이다. 열이면 아홉은 자기가 얼마나,
    어떻게 돈을 땄는지에 대해 신나게 말하고
    다닌다. 자기가 심하게 잃은 이야기는 접어둔채..
    결국 이사람 저사람 이야기를 듣다보면 거의 다 따네?

    그런 생각이 들게 마련이다. 이것이 카지노가 쳐놓은 또하나의 함정이랄까..
    한번 빠지면 주위의 사람들에게도 영향을 주는 마치 피라미드 마케팅(?)을 연상시킨다.
    난 지금까지 10번 잃었으니 이번엔 딸차례야..
    라고 생각한다. 생각해보자. 이길 확률이 30%인 게임이 있다고 치자.
    7번을 연속으로 잃은 사람은 당연히 다음 3게임에서 딸 확률이 훨씬더 높다고
    생각하게 마련이다. 하지만 실제 다음 게임도 이길 확률은 매한가지로 30%이다.
    결국 매 게임 이길 확률보다 질 확률이 높은 게임에 돈을 걸고 빠져들게 되는것이다.
    자신이 잃은 돈을 되찾기 위해..

    지는 게임을 하지 않는다고 한다. 누군가 그 법칙을 깨고,
    돈을 따간다면 카지노는 바로 그 방법을 알아내 사용할수 없도록 룰을 바꾼다.
    진정 머리가 좋고 사리에 밝은 사람이라면 잃을수밖에 없는 악마의 유혹에 넘어가지
    않을것이라 믿는다.

  4. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.

  5. I’ve learned newer and more effective things from the blog post. Yet another thing to I have observed is that in many instances, FSBO sellers may reject you actually. Remember, they will prefer not to ever use your solutions. But if an individual maintain a gradual, professional romance, offering help and being in contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually have the capacity to win a conversation. From there, a listing follows. Many thanks

  6. 924125 164047Delighted for you to discovered this internet site write-up, My group is shopping more often than not regarding this.
