What are the best educational apps for young children?

Hi, I'm a mother of two young children, and I'm always looking for ways to incorporate education into their screen time. I want to find some great educational apps that are both fun and engaging for my kids. However, with so many apps out there, it can be overwhelming to choose which ones are worth trying. Can anyone recommend some of the best educational apps for young children that you have personally tried and tested? Thank you in advance!

Hi there, as a parent of a 5-year-old, I've found that the Endless Alphabet app has been extremely helpful in teaching him new words and spellings. The app presents a fun way of learning the alphabet, basic spelling and pronunciation, and the interactive graphics on the app really hold his attention. The animations are vibrant and engaging, and the voice-over cues are age-appropriate. My son loves unlocking new words and learning their definitions every day. Another great app is Duolingo, which helps kids learn a new language through fun activities and interactive lessons. It's comprehensive and has helped my son pick up French quickly. These two apps have been essential in keeping my son engaged and learning while he plays on his iPad.

Hey there, as a preschool teacher, I believe the PBS Kids Games app is an amazing resource for young children. The app offers games that teach problem-solving, reasoning, and social skills. It features characters from well-known TV shows and also provides videos and other educational resources. The app is ad-free, which is a plus, and the games are age-appropriate, keeping the child engaged and motivated. Another excellent app is the Sago Mini World app, which has a range of mini-games that stimulate the child's imagination, creativity, and critical thinking. It's an excellent way to introduce and reinforce concepts such as colors, shapes, and numbers. These two apps have worked wonders in my classroom, and the children always look forward to playing and learning with these apps.

Hello there, as a parent, I would like to suggest the Khan Academy Kids app, which is an excellent learning app for young children. The app covers various subjects such as early literacy, math, and social-emotional learning. It has interactive activities, videos, and games that engage the child and make learning fun. The app also provides courses with creative projects, printable books, and offline activities that the child can do with parents. Another app that I highly recommend is the Busy Shapes app, which is great for enhancing the child's cognitive, problem-solving, and fine motor skills. The game allows the child to manipulate different shapes and objects, and as they progress through the levels, the challenges become more complicated. These apps are perfect for parents who want to engage their children in interactive learning and make the most out of screen time.

As a parent, I highly recommend the app ABCmouse. It's great for teaching math, phonics, reading, and other subjects in a fun, interactive way. My daughter loves the colorful graphics and cute characters. Plus, there are rewards and incentives to keep her motivated to learn. Another app that we love is Little Writer, which helps kids learn how to write letters and numbers. It's great practice for handwriting skills, and my son loves tracing the letters and numbers with his finger. Both of these apps have been great additions to our educational app collection.

Hi there, I'm a first-grade teacher, and I have found that the Teach Your Monster to Read app is excellent for teaching phonics to children. The app allows the child to create their monster avatar and guides them through different reading levels, thereby improving their sight-word recognition and decoding skills. The game is interactive and introduces tricky letters and sounds progressively, so the child is not overwhelmed with too much information too soon. I also recommend the ScratchJr app, which enables kids to create their interactive stories, games, and animations. It's an excellent way to spark their creativity and introduce them to basic coding skills. These two apps work great in the classroom setting, and I've seen first-hand how beneficial they can be.
