These days you’d be hard pressed to find a kid that didn’t know how to work an iPad or phone. Technology is just part of their everyday life now. I’ve tried to make sure, however, that the iPad or my phone is something special rather than an everyday activity. This keeps Mr. G from having too much screen time and it keeps his attention longer when he gets to play with it. But I also don’t like to have just any random app on there. I like for him to be learning, wether or not he realizes it or not!
This app is reminiscent of the “choose your own adventure” books from my childhood. The story is narrated up to a certain point and then your child can push the buttoner where they want to go next. The story can be different every time they listen to it!
There is an entire series of apps under the search “endless”. From numbers to letters, reading to word building. Almost all of them have free versions and then, or course there are bundles and in-app purchases. These are so great for learning the basics of math, reading, word and letter recognition, and I could go on and on. Plus, Mr. G loves the funny sounds the letters and numbers make so it’s fun for him while he’s learning.
Mr. G loves Curious George so I knew this would be a hit. I love how much is in this app! Puzzle games, number games, books, and educational videos. It has a little bit of everything and a little fun thrown in too!
What are some of your favorite app for your little ones?
