Twenty-five great stories about the Zalairos characters that kids actually enjoy reading! One of my favourite things about this app is that kids of any reading level can read the books and answer the reading comprehension questions at the end of each story.
I recently watched three app demo videos from Ellie for some cute Peppa Pig apps. My daughter loves Peppa, and after watching I thought I'd get the apps for her. Unfortunately, these apps aren't available in the US or Canada. If you live in Great Britain, or Australia, or most other countries, you can watch the videos and then download the apps! If you're in the US or Canada, watching the video will at least give you a taste of the app. I know my daughter likes watching Ellie's demo videos, regardless of if we have the app.
Lisa R shared this article from BBC with the Smart Apps For Kids staff recently, and I think it's worthy of sharing with everyone. It's about this great program, called Autism in the Air, designed to help children with autism gain experience in the airport before a holiday trip. Those who have some knowledge of autism know that any change in routine is better if children are familiar with the setting and sequence of events, and Autism in the Air helps with that. There is also a series of videos, for those who can't get a trial run of the airport first! Definitely check this out before flying!
Bottom Line: Go on an adventure to Australia with an adorable South American camelid. Using his magical merry-go-round, Pacca the Alpaca travels from his homeland to take a learning trek across Australia. Your preschooler can practice colors, numbers, and shapes as they journey across Australia with this colorful alpaca.
I was searching Teachers Pay Teachers for some new work for my reading group and stumbled upon Grasshopper Apps' TPT page. That's right, the same people who give us thirty four educational apps for free also have twenty six FREE downloads on TPT! Teachers and parents of early elementary school children need to check these out!
