iPad App Review: Eurotalk Maths Age 3-5

21 February 2012 1 comment

I have to say I tutted when I was first asked to review this app as the first Topic is free and then you have to pay for the others.  However, my daughter is loving it and keeps going back to it again and again.  She only has the Sorting and Matching Topic. I think […]

I’m absolutely loving this iPad App ‘Scribble Press’ and the best thing of all it’s FREE! Scribble Pad allows children to write, illustrate and share their own stories. They can use a story template as a starting point (e.g. If I were a Fairy, All about my Dad, If I ruled the World or The […]

Music to our ears! Kids’ Ipad App Reviews

10 January 2012 1 comment

My hubby and I are pretty much tone deaf. The only exposure our daughter really gets to music is the radio playing in the background or in the car. We have abandoned music classes because, if this is hereditary, it’s probably better to spend our money elsewhere. However, I was recently sent the following two […]

Kid’s Ipad App Review: Word Wall HD

6 January 2012 4 comments

When I was at school we learned the alphabet by singing the alphabet song but this  a major ‘no-no’ now, as it is all done by phonics. Even though I’m a former teacher the whole phonemes, word families and CVC words is all a bit of a mystery to me, as I taught slightly older […]

A friend of mine, with the technical ability, would like to develop an app for kids so I’ve been trying to help him come up with an idea. The other day, after spotting my daughters Fuzzy Felts, I thought they would be a great idea for an app. However, by the time I text him […]

I was looking for an iPad app for my daughter that introduced basic addition and subtraction using picture stories and came across Park Math HD (£1.49) by Duck Duck Moose. I’ve come across their apps before and liked them. I do like this one as well; there are activities for counting, adding, subtracting and sorting […]

Ipad Apps for Kids: Puppet Pals HD

15 November 2011 1 comment

Yet, another fantastic Ipad app recommendation from my mate Danny Nicholson from The Whiteboard Blog.  I absolutely love this app Puppet Pals, it’s also available for iphones but can’t help thinking the screen would be too small and fiddly for little fingers. Simply choose your characters, a background, resize the images and when you’re ready […]

Ipad Apps for Kids: Jellybean Count

I absolutely love this Ipad app, Jellybean Count and to boot, it’s FREE!  It was recommended by my mate Danny Nicholson from The Whiteboard Blog. Children count the different colour of jellybeans and then use the same number of fingers to input their answers.  For example, if there are 4 green jellybeans, they need to […]

Iphone Apps for Kids: Casper’s Scare School

21 October 2011 1 comment

People must think I’m in the back pocket of Mindshapes as I’m always raving about their apps. However, I think there success it due to the fact that they have consultant teachers on board so you end up with fun apps that are also educational. I was sent a promo code for their latest iPhone […]
