Educational Apps for Preschoolers
As I stated in my previous post on using technology to educate my son, I wanted to share a few of iPhone/iPad apps (all under $4) that I use to get my little guy having fun and learning at the same time.
The Monster At The End of This Book. This book is an absolute favorite in my house. The interactive nature of this book allows for a hand on approach to storytelling. ($3.99; iPhone, iPad)
If you want to teach your child Spanish or are raising a bilingual child, this app is definitely for the early learner in your life. With 60 Spanish words and phrases, this app helps preschoolers develop a basic Spanish vocabulary.($2.99; iPad)
This app is a great way to introduce your preschooler to colors, shapes, letters, counting, etc. The goal filling the monkey's lunch box with fruit, kids enjoy helping count, match fruit and solve puzzles. ($0.99, iPhone, iPad)
Kids will enjoy this interactive take of the classic nursery rhyme song that can be heard in different languages and touch different objects to open bus doors, make windshield wipers go "swish". ($.99, iPhone, iPad)
The learning adventure of this app allows kids to join Frankie the Dog through a variety math, reading, memory, letting identification and critical thinking skills games (about 15 in all). ($1.99; iPhone, iPad).
Got a puzzle builder at home? Then they will love this interactive jigsw puzzle which outlines musical instruments, the alphabet, numbers, animals, objects, etc. This all also helps build a child's vocabulary and improve their fine motor skills. ($.99, iPhone. Shape Builder lite is also available for Free).
I recently purchased and truly enjoy how this app was created to teach kids how to read a clock while enjoying the variety of games that provide visual and audio indicators to help children learn more efficiently.($2.99, iPhone)
