Education / 29 August, 2017 / My Baba
Getting your little ones back into the swing of learning can be a tricky feat for even the best of us, but it doesn’t have to be. The trick is to try and ease the massive contrast of having fun at home and being tied down at school learning. If you can make a gradual transition from one end of the spectrum to the other, the blow is a lot softer when your child is back at school.
But how are you supposed to do this? The answer is simple – apps! Of course, there are other options such as picture books, educational television programs and classes; but there’s no harm in adding applications into the mix. With children becoming more and more accustomed to the latest technology, navigating their way through these apps won’t be a challenge.
From maths to history, we have five of the best educational apps that are both fun and informative.
Azoomee is an app that basically acts as a child-safe hub for all things digital. It offers a variety of TV shows, games, and audiobooks all in one place. This allows kids to learn, watch and listen to child appropriate material – a lot of which is educational. We’d advise setting them up with an episode of the Horrible Histories TV show, or try out the Art Studio section and get your little baba to practise their art skills!
Great for ages: 5 – 9
Tinybop offer so many different apps, most of which are science-based. From space to plant life, your child can easily learn the basics about the world around us and how things work. We suggest downloading The Human Body app; your child will love learning about what makes us tick!
