Nice list of helpful apps! I have a few friends I think could really use this list, I will be sending them your way.

I really like your website – now I have loads of apps to try out, thanks!

My kids really love the Peppa Pig apps. They’ve helped with my younger daughter’s numeracy skills. I think having a recognisable character keeps them interested whilst also helping them learn under the guise of fun – they’re fantastic. Definitely worth checking out!

Thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely take a look.

Thanks for the apps! Was wanting any advice for apps for reading for kids in K and 2nd grade.

Thanks for visiting. I have some book app lists, I have them added on my pinterest board, but have to update this page soon :-) You can find the lists on my Pinterest board
A really good book reader that offers free books is Bookboard. It has books for kids age 2-12. You can find the info here

If you are looking for apps that help kids read, such as sight words, vocabulary, reading comprehension, you can check out this list, there are more on the list if you click on “previous posts” at the bottom.

Did you try out “Cino on the Farm” or “Cino in the Safari”? We love them :)

No I have not. I will have to check them out. Thanks for recommending!

Call me old fashioned, but I find teaching kids using iPads and apps a bit weird. Nevertheless this is the way things are and we got to change with the times. I wrote an article recently about Temple Run and what it can teach you about life, you might find it to your liking! Here it is:
