I recently upgraded to the iPhone 4 and am amazed at all of the apps out there, especially for kids. So I thought I would share some my favorite education related apps. So with out further delay, drum roll please….
Swapsies is an app that allows your child to play dress virtually. You first start off by selecting your gender, skin, eye and hair color and then you’re ready to get started. You can choose a profession or create your own – hello village people!
This app allows you create your very own story! My son is about to turn 4 yrs old so I don’t expect him to be able to create his own story. However, this may be a good way to re-iterate a lesson (no biting, consequences, etc.) to your child in an indirect manner. 😉
Here is a video showing how it works:
This app is really great at providing quick games in an educational format. Games include identifying letters, counting, matching and puzzles.
As the title implies, this app is all about building words. There are several things I like about this app – at the most basic level, they help out by telling how the word is spelled so all you have to do is match the letters up and then you can see how it builds a word. Secondly, you can build on to what you have learned by going to the next level.
