Kid's Academy Learning App Update

I'd like to thank Kid's Academy for sponsoring this post.

Have you guys heard of Kid's Academy? You better have! I reviewed some of their toddler and preschool learning apps a few weeks back. Well, come to find out, they've been busy bees and have a couple new app updates to share again!

Now, as you all know, I make a point of finding educational apps  that help to facilitate learning in a fun, engaging manner for my daughter. I prefer educational Apps that address on eye-hand coordination, visual perceptual skills, and school preparatory-type activities, such as learning shapes, letters and numbers. When I heard Kid's Academy recently updated their apps and added some new ones, I definitely wanted to share with you all!
The Bingo ABCs app is quite the adorable, engaging and fun learning app for toddlers/preschoolers. My daughter loves to sing, so when we can incorporate learning with music, it's a win-win. Not to mention, the graphics are fun and engaging. Great app to give parents a few minutes of distraction! Must have for all parents of toddlers!

Preschool & Kindergarten Kid's Learn to Read program is designed with pre-reading skills in mind. There is an "Easy Maze" workbook that works on moving from left to right, with a really cute little dog that follows the bone. But be careful! He will run into a wall if you're not cautious and take your time! There are short and long vowel workbooks to work on various vowel sounds. There are also a beginning writing word workbook, which allows your little to learn to form Uppercase letters, sound out the words, and work on "sight word" recognition. Love that this is such an adorable learning app, designed to grow with kids.

kids academyPreschool & Kindergarten Kid's learning games program is designed with pre-reading and pre-writing skills in mind. The in App workbooks consist of a phonics workbook that provides a pronunciation of a word, with a cute little picture included. I do wish there were more versions and options for the pronunciations, so this could be something that they might want to consider in later upgrades to this App. They have letter, shape and number tracing. The Number tracing workbook has little lightning bugs that make a teeny purr-type sound when you "collect" each one as you trace your finger across the number. The App tells you "This is the number "1", trace the number "2" and collect fireflies". I love that it identifies the number, which is especially helpful for the those little preschoolers that are still learning number recognition. The shapes are ideal for the younger preschoolers, as it's important to be able to make simple shapes prior to letters and numbers, but the app also identifies them for that younger set that might not be able to identify them independently 100% of the time. There are also a few math workbooks that focus on counting by 5's and 10's, which are great skills for the K-1 grade-set. Totally love that this will grow with my little Nugget!

  1. When I saw your earlier review I downloaded these for my granddaughter, and they are phenomenal! This is the first time I am happy to upgrade a free app. I would pay much more than 2.99 for their upgrade I assure you. My granddaughter was writing some of her letters within the first 5 minutes of using the letter tracer app, meaning she began that quickly to realize where to start and end all of her letters. She is 3 and has never used an app like this before! She also has only been taught at home as far as pre-school as well. She is very advanced for her age, but I think any level student would benefit from this. She can also read some words, so I am looking forward to starting the re as ding app with her as well. We like to take one new thing at a time. Thanks again so much for sharing :)

  2. That is an awesome app! I have never heard of this before, but I want to download it :)

  3. This is so good for kids! Technology can teach kids so much so quickly!

  4. My daughter might be a bit too little for this still. But I will definitely have to keep this in mind when she gets a little older. Or when my nephew visits. He would absolutely love it.
