Calling all creative children! Bamba Craft is looking for designers for shirts, hats, skateboards and more. If a child enjoys traveling, this app will provide an extra bonus as they travel to a variety of places, such as a spaceship, to pick up items for decorating. Children may be hooked on wanting this app already, so maybe I should mention to adults that it is a free app to download. This app will provide hours of design fun for creative kids.
We're working our way through elementary school, app list style. This week's feature is my opinion on the must-have iPad apps in a classroom or at home for first grade students. But don't forget about the Kindergarten Top 10 list from last week. Many of the apps on that list are still very appropriate for first grade students. And keep watching for the second grade list, since many first grade students are ready for the challenges that list will bring.
Bottom Line: MiniSchool offers a collection of six educational activities with varying levels of difficulty to help teach and reinforce several academic skills. Whimsical ocean-themed scenes and characters keep children entertained while working for a ribbon of success. Though many of the activities benefit younger children, the varying difficulty levels allow this app to grow with the child through multiple years.
