It’s a technology-fueled world, and we’re loving that in this household. Since John works in internet security, we are really into all of the latest technology. John is just chomping at the bit, waiting for Google Glass to be released, and because I’m a blogger, I’m constantly browsing the web, taking photos with my smartphone, updating my social media sites, or checking out the latest apps.
There isn’t a day that goes by without us using our smartphones or tablets. We feel it’s really important to teach our daughter Kayleigh, using our tech devices, so she is “with the times”. Sure, we will also work hard to show her the simpler things in life, like going down to the fishing hole on a Sunday afternoon, or building a fort in the backyard, but we feel that she can learn so much using all of the great educational apps out there for kids these days.
Kid’s Academy is one of the most successful developers of apps for kids, and they have recently released what might be their biggest app yet. 123 Tracing is an excellent educational app designed for kids. It’s a really cute game that helps kids learn numbers by asking them to trace them right on the screen. This is also really great for forming those fine motor skills!
As the kids trace the numbers on the screen, fireflies are added to their jar. They have lots of fun tracing numbers and trying to fill their jar up with fireflies!
Kayleigh is still a bit young for this app, but she enjoyed watching me trace the numbers out, and put her hand over mine as I did. With time, I am sure she will grow to love this app and use it to learn her numbers.
The app is live and available to download via iTunes, Google Play and Amazon at:
Kid’s Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.
