Bottom Line: An app with a seemingly endless amount of content for your preschooler. Ebooks, songs, videos, puzzles and games will keep little ones occupied and learning for hours. Some content is free; the rest can be unlocked for an in-app purchase of $2.99. Try before you buy — some of the activities are a little advanced for toddlers and preschoolers.
Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street? Now that I have that song stuck in my head and yours, let's talk about all the great things that have come from that amazing little street. For years, children have learned about spelling, counting, friendship, shapes, colors as well as many life issues. Sesame Workshop has been making quality apps dealing with issues such as divorce, military family, calming skills when kids are upset and more, for decades now. I was looking at our list of free apps from Sesame and realized there were two not listed, so I've added them for you! Learn financial basics with Elmo and learn how to prepare in case of an emergency with these two FREE apps!
Bottom Line: Beyond Cats! Grade 2 Math Standards — Practice Common Core Math for 2nd Graders is a math app that offers your child a fun way to practice the math skills required for 2nd grade. Multiple accounts can be set up to track all of the kids in your family or classroom. All of the skills are designed to adhere to Common Core standards.
Bottom Line: Keep the Change Kids satisfies all a kid's basic needs for learning about U.S. coins. Includes names, values and quick addition drills to find totals. A good app for reinforcing what six to eight year-olds are learning in school, but it's missing descriptions of what is pictured on each coin as well as drills that teach counting back change after a subtraction.
