Educational Apps for Kids

I don't know about you, but every time I turn around, my iPad is filled with new apps that I didn't download. The latest one to show up was the Hershey's chocolate milk app where you squeeze a bottle into a glass of milk and then tap a straw to slurp out the contents. While there's not much educational value of seeing a virtual glass of chocolate milk disappear on the screen, I was happy to find out this morning about some important apps for kids that'll actually help them with their school work.

EM - Baseball Multiplication Facts 2.jpgFollowing the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics conference, McGraw-Hill Education announced that its lowering the price on its Everyday Math apps to give teachers and parents the opportunity to download them and offer feedback.

The Everyday Math apps offer K-6 students a quick and easy way to practice and reinforce different concepts in mathematics. The apps, which are available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod, will be free from April 13-17. You can download all of McGraw-Hill Education's apps here.

One of the apps - Baseball Multiplication Facts (1-6) - was recently featured in the "New and Noteworthy" section of the App store.

    Now a day’s education is very important for every kid that creates the way of thinking and behavior well, and app education is not a bad thought for kids. Because after getting this kind of knowledge they will not need to say that do my assignment online during their assignment due to consisting excellent information about education, writing, etc.

    Applications are extraordinary, however what do you do when you require some additional help? My children required more than PC diversions, so I got some backing from Private School Edge. Their mentors are an incredible asset for all their homework addresses that I can't reply. They're even prepared in test prep for the ERB and Gifted and Talented tests for all evaluation levels. Tuition based school Edge is a gigantic help! And after that the applications can all the more effectively bolster the work my children do at school, at home, and with their mentor!

    Apps are great, but what do you do when you need some extra help? My kids needed more than computer games, so I got some support from Private School Edge. Their tutors are a great resource for all their homework questions that I can't answer. They're even trained in test prep for the ERB and Gifted and Talented tests for all grade levels. Private School Edge is a huge help! And then the apps can more easily support the work my kids do at school, at home, and with their tutor!

    My kids simply love this FREE Ipad App named : Lazytown

    It is surely one of the best Ipad apps I have seen so far.
