With Zane we didn’t do preschool, he really loved learning on his own. Really he still does. Zarek on the other hand is not excited about learning his ABCs. It is funny how each boy is so different. These apps are some that Zane enjoyed and some that I’m trying to use to encourage learning through fun for Zarek.
Joe and Moon
You can use your phone or tablet to teach your children to enjoy books at a young age. This is a great little book about a boy, his dad, and the moon.
Kids Shapes (Preschool)
This shape game is great because not only will it teach your child shapes but also show them how to find shapes in the real world. There is a good voice over that will guide your child to the right shape and congratulate them when they get it right.
Rainbow Train: colors lite
If your child loves trains this is a great app for helping them learn their colors. Fill the right carts with the right colors and when it is full it will say the color.
Toddler Counting 123 Kids Free
The great graphics will pull your child in and keep them engaged. As they click the animals or items the app will count with them teaching them counting and numbers.
Kids Learning Numbers Lite
Not only will this help your child learn to count, but you can also help them learn the numbers by writing them. They can also advance and start learning number patterns too. On the full version you get 5 more games!
Kids Connect the Dots Lite
This is one of our all time favorite apps for Zane & now Zarek. They can learn their alphabet or letters by using connecting the dots and revealing fun pictures! You can start them out easy with a hint version or make it harder with no hints. I love that when they touch the letter or number the app tells them the number or letter they touched. They are learning and they really don’t even realize it.
My first puzzles: Alphabet
Zane loved this puzzle game and learned a lot of his letters from playing this game. You can only go up to letter G in the lite version, but you can try it out with your little one to see if it holds their interest. I think this one of the apps that really helped Zane learn his alphabet. To get the other puzzles it is an in app purchase.
Baby Learns ABC (kids)
Baby Bus is filled with fun and educational apps for children 1-3 and 3-4. Baby Learns ABC has a fun car game and a musical ABC section.
Ninja Girl Alphabet Animals
Love this app! You press the letters and a cute voice tells you what is and you get an item that starts with that letter. What I love is the test mode. You can really see what letters your child is learning.
A to Z (Free)
This app really does make learning fun. Your child can learn their ABCs by playing a fun game. They will learn letter order, but the app does not say the letters as you go.
Kids Alphabet Aquarium Lite
Each letter has multiple games so your child gets repetition without getting bored. They can build the letter to better remember its shape, there are puzzles to help learn the shape and sounds, and more. The lite version only goes up to the letter E.
Preschool and Kindergarten
Preschool and Kindergarten Learning Games has three games to play. Shapes & colors, Letter Find, and Counting. I think what captures kids is that when they get the answers right you have an owl that flies around the screen.
