Capital City

Parents may think that teaching children to be entrepreneurs is a bit of a lofty goal for an app, but Capital City make it accessible in a way I never thought possible. It makes learning finance and business strategy fun. The machinations of the game are simple: buy properties to earn cash flow.  Then, over time and game play, kids try to raise their cash flow higher than their expenses so that they can escape their boring job at Supercorp forever!  To that end using… Read More

Smithsonian Channel App

I recently find a great educational app from Smithsonian – Smithsonian Channel. It has many of Smithsonian channel’s videos, some are full episodes, and they are free! It is available on almost all the different devices, iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android, Kindle. If you want to watch the videos on bigger screen, it is also available on their website, so you can watch the shows on your computer. I loved Smithsonian, and I simply can't believe I can watch Smithsonian Channel… Read More

Come Visit Us

Come Visit Us is a role play app where kids can learn to be a host, invite guests to tea parties or picnics. There is not much speaking in the app, which is perfect for imagination, story making, or vocabulary and language development. When kids open the app, they get to choose one of the 3 language options. The one in the middle is English. Once the language is chosen, kids can pick one scene to play with: tea party… Read More

IF app

Parenting tweens and teens is a different challenge than parenting younger kids. Kids this age are more independent, which is good, but sometimes makes it hard for them to accept whatever we are trying to teach them.  It is especially challenging when it comes to social and emotional skills. That is why I am very interested in learning the new app IF… - a game app aiming at tweens and teens on their SEL skills. SEL stands for Social and… Read More

Disney Princess Palace Pets

The app begins at the Disney Princess Pet Salon where kids meet and pamper six pets from various past Disney Princesses. There are dogs and cats of course but we also have a horse and a bunny. They all have clever names with subtle nods to their respective princesses, my favorite being Cinderella's dog Pumpkin. When kids pick the pet they want to pamper they click on them and get a short and sweet narrative highlighting when the pet and… Read More

Real Friends vs the Other Kind

Having heard many stories about bullying, and nowadays, cyber bullying, and how much kids involved suffer from the experience, we, as parents and educators, should all work with our kids, help them gain skills in recognizing bully behavior, and be equipped with strategies on handling bully situation. Many times, it is hard to bring up a discussion about bully with kids, so today I want to share some resources that will make the talk about… Read More
