    Are there any recommendations for android devices? I love your posts but I don’t have an ipad.

    • If you search Android, most Android apps will show up. The search is on the left sidebar close to bottom.

  • Stopping by from KBN FB hop! What a valuable site! Saves us busy moms a lot of time! Thanks!

  • Inspyder Site Map

    I was recommended this blog by my cousin. You’re incredible! Thanks!

  • Oh my! I just received my first and very own tablet for my bday Fri. By this Fri. I am going to need new eyeballs! I will be blogging shortly about this and am hoping I can tag you. I am very overwhelmed and need guidance and you are the perfect stop! Would you mind me referencing you? Also, i clicked on a couple of your app things but I had to switch over to android to download. Not sure if you get credit for that…

    • Hi Debbie, congrats on your new iPAD. You are welcome to reference iGameMom, as long as you are not posting the whole article on your site. If you just write a short introduction on your site and provide the link to iGameMom, that is totally fine and welcomed.
      Any clicking on the links are helpful! So please continue clicking 🙂

  • Great resources—thanks!

  • Good resources page. Went into the Singapore Maths one to take a look out of curiosity.

    • Singapore math is a good resource. My son’s school just started using it. I like the way they teach math concept and math thinking.

  • Thanks for sharing this listing! As a former tutor and student, the value of a good education and supplemental material is a great investment. I just bookmarked this page and look forward to sharing it with friends and family. Thanks for posting and have a great holiday season! 🙂

    • Thanks for the note and for sharing the info with your friends and family. Enjoy and hope to see you again soon.

  • I like what you’re doing and benefited immediately. I will be visiting regularly.

  • Thanks for visiting my blog. This is a great site with plenty of excellent resources. I plan to share – I know plenty of parents who will benefit from your site (part of my day job). Thanks again 🙂

  • Great resources here! You’ve thought of everything!

  • Thank you for visiting my blog! I am thrilled to see you have a resource for personal money management. Children’s perception of money is at 3-5 years old and last a life time. It’s at this point the perception of ‘value’ is established. As children grow, of course perceptions change with knowledge and experience. My thrill is teaching 12-19 years olds the realities of making good money decisions. Sadly it is not taught in most schools, I am so happy you are offering resources and options.

  • Thanks for the read of No Dollar Left Behind. I didn’tt know about YA Bank-glad to get that link for a future post. You might also like my post about teaching children to grocery shop at a young age. http://nodollarleftbehind.wordpress.com/2012/04/24/are-you-having-budgeting-fantasies/ Dana

  • Great stuff here thanks very much!

  • Though I haven’t explored it in too much depth, here’s a site that looks good for emerging readers:

    My oldest is four and a half and up to this point, I’ve been advocating for “screen free” as much as possible. My husband balances it out by giving them a bit of exposure to electronic media. Balance is key.

      Thanks Anita for the recommendation. It looks fun, but the interface is not intuitive to me, so it may take me sometime to figure out how to use it.

  • I tried to leave you a comment last week (I think it was) but wordpress was messing with me. I love your site–and I wanted to know if you have read Jane McGonigal’s Reality is Broken. I’m still working through it but it has given me a whole new perspective on computer games. Thanks for visiting my site and for putting together this great resource!

    • Thanks for the note. I have not read the book. Now that you mentioned it, I will check it out. The book changed my thinking about the video games is “I live in the future” by Nick Bilton. The key message I get from the book is that we have to go with the trend, not against the trend. These games are there no matter we like or not. We have to learn how to leverage them, and how to get the best out of them.

      • Yes–that is much of what McGonigal begins with as well. What I found really exciting was what she said about how the world is changing to bring what works in gaming into life itself. One example is chorewars.com. Have you seen this site? Not educational–but sets up incentives for your kids to compete to get real house hold chores done. And you can make up any sort of quest you want (I added “Speaking in ancient tongues” quest to give my son 50 XP points if he scored above a 90 on his Latin test. It worked!!) You should definitely check it out if you haven’t seen it.

        • chorewars.com looks like an interesting site. I might give it a try. Thanks for the info.
