I recommended BrainPop Featured Movie a while ago. Since then, my son has been using it almost every day. Now the BrainPop has a similar app for younger kids BrainPop Jr. Similar to BrainPop Featured Movie, BrainPop Jr. offers short videos on topics that is aligned to state education standards. Instead of a new movie every day, it offers a new movie every week. It targets kids in kindergarten to third grade. The videos cover a wide range of subjects, from telling the time to Internet safety, from counting on to getting lice.
Introduction from the App Store:
Bring learning to your fingertips™ with the BrainPOP Jr.® Movie of the Week app for the iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch®. Get a different animated movie every week and check out related quizzes and educational activities – free! BrainPOP Jr. site subscribers can log in and access all BrainPOP Jr. content directly from the app.
Ideal for kids in Kindergarten through grade 3, the BrainPOP Jr. Movie of the Week app spans subjects within Science, Social Studies, Reading, Writing, Math, Health, Arts and Technology. The gentle, humorous, and relatable characters Annie and Moby serve as guides through each topic, empowering kids to form their own ideas. BrainPOP Jr. content is designed to cultivate critical thinking skills and encourage children to ask questions and make connections. The app is easily navigable by kids ages 5-9.
This is a high quality educational app for kids aged 5 to 10. Kids can learn a variety subjects at their own pace, and it is fun.
It works on iPhone, iPod, and iPAD. It is free with the weekly movies. However, if your child wants to watch more, you have to subscribe on their website.
