Our top 5 Favorite Educational Apps
I am not a perfect mother. Brandon and I have let Aria eat ice cream before dinner, let her watch movies all day a few times I know I am no award winning mom. I do pride myself in only allowing her to play fun educational games on my phone. We are currently saving up to get her an ipad mini of her own so she can drain that battery. Until then it’s momma’s phone. So let’s get on to our top five educational apps.
: ($6.99) This is such a cute game. It does cost, but it so worth it. The pack comes with three apps. Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Daniel Tiger’s Day and Night, Explore Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. All of them are equally cute. Aria has learned so much from this app. She has learned how to express her emotions, and what emotions she is expressing. She knows what sad, happy and mad mean. It is really amazing how much she has picked up from this bundle.
- Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood lets you play with stickers, walks you through the bathroom process, what your different emotions are and introduces them to what happens at the Dr. Aria knows that a shot will sting, but then it goes away because of Daniel. The day and night one walks kids through day and night routines. Waking up, brushing your teeth getting ready for school etc. The night routine walk kids through eating, bathing brushing your teeth and going to sleep. This has been our #1 favorite.
2. Endless games:
(free trial, they are cheaper as a bundle you can get the four main ones for $60). There are so many versions of this game: Endless Wordplay, Endless Numbers, Endless Reader, Endless Learning, Endless Spanish, and Endless Monsters etc. You can download free versions. Or you can pay for the full thing. We just have the free version and we love it. I can imagine the paid version is even more amazing. These app’s teach kids their letters, how to read, the pronunciation, their numbers. They make it fun and repetitive so kids will remember it.
3. Teach Monster:
($4.99) I downloaded this game a while back. I have no idea how I found this app I think a family member sent the link to me so I downloaded it when it was free. Teach your monster to read is such a lovable app, it is adorable. Your little one can create their own little monster. The story line is the monster’s space ship breaks down and has to go to this different islands to get pieces to fix it up. They learn letters, and the pronunciation, all while collecting items for their little monster. We love this app.
4. Lego Duplo Train:
(free) Aria loves trains, she is obsessed with them actually. With this app, you get to build a train, drive a train, and build bridges and get the train to it’s destination. It is such a cute app Aria loves it. Not to mention she loves Legos. We also love the little food version of this game too. You build Lego food, clean up after you sell all your food and start another day.
($1.99) I-tot Flashcards is not in the app store anymore I couldn’t find it. It is amazing however. The app has a picture and pronounces the word. You can download it in different languages. It is great for toddlers because they see the picture and hear the word. They can click on the picture and it continues to repeat the word. The app is a great teaching tool. It has different categories. It actually helped Aria learn her shapes.
