Storybook Maker

Storybook Maker is a book creating app for kids.  I have reviewed several book creator apps, and this one is another great addition to the book creator library. I like this one for its versatility and intuitive kids’ friendly interface. Once kids start a new book, they can choose a template for each new page. There are several templates to choose from, with different picture and text layouts.  They can also choose to work on a blank page and design… Read More

Agent magic investigates punky dunk and the goldfish

Let's just say I am a sucker for mice (its a family thing).  That however, is not the only reason I enjoyed Special Agent Magic.  He's got a thing for cheese fondue and rescuing goldfish from young black and white cats. When kids first enter the app, they are prompted to make a secret agent ID card.  Kids don't have to make an ID card to learn about the case but it sure does help them feel like a secret… Read More

Robots for iPAD

Robots for iPAD is a very cool app about Robots. It is developed by IEEE (Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers). It has pictures and videos of 126 robots from 19 countries, with tons of information about each one.  I suggest all kids take a look at it, even you are just remotely interested in robots – it will open your minds up, learn the potential of technology and its impact in our everyday life.  It is currently FREE, and… Read More

Tipping Point Adventure Game

I love Dan Russell-Pinson’s apps.  I am sure you will if you know some of his apps: Stack the States, Stack the Countries, Monster Physics.  Tipping point is one of his more recent release, and it is a fun one too. The app instantly became my son’s most favorite game once we downloaded it and what I really like is it became a family game too – we would sit together figuring out the puzzles and solutions together. When you… Read More

AHhhhh! This is my kind of App. I love a good leveling educational app with a printable worksheet component that meets Common Core Standards. Nothing in life makes me happier. The Phonics Munch App gets your little one on the path to early reading with a cute story about Chomper the Bear who eats letters, consonant and vowel sounds and rhyming words...and he is just SO cute. The program reinforces what it teaches by using several different methods to create… Read More

Learn Sight Word with Smiley Sight Words App post image

Sight words are very important in reading ability development.  According to Patricia Cunningham in Phonics They Use, “In order to read and write fluently with comprehension and meaning, children must be able to automatically read and spell the most frequent words. As the store of words they can automatically read and spell increases, so will their speed and comprehension.” We want our children be able to “read to learn”, but they have to pass the “learn to read” stage first… Read More
