Our Favorite Preschool Apps

(43 Months)

We use our iPad as part of our quiet time activities (when Wild One doesn't nap or when Little Miss wakes up very early from a nap) and while I'm cooking dinner.  I am so happy with these apps, they keep the kiddos fully engaged, while learning- and I get to complete some never-ending housework.

The kids love using the iPad to do "work".  All of these games are fantastic learning tools, they don't even realize they are practicing - heh heh heh (evil laugh).  I've spent hours searching and playing with numerous learning apps.  These are the ones that the kids and I really like and decided to keep.

  2. What a great resource for IPad apps for use in homeschooling our children. I do not use an IPad, but I know that my applications on my android platform are very helpful too :-)

    Thank you for linking up this week to the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop! I do hope that you will visit my neck of the magical woods every week and take a quick rest by the tree on the tree stump while you read everyone’s blog posts that they have so thoughtfully shared with all of us.

  3. My kids LOVE the TeachMe Toddler (and others) and SuperWhy apps, too. I was just recently looking at the Handwriting without Tears app. Do you feel it's very helpful? (It looks great, especially since they updated it to include lowercase letters, too. I almost wish I could test out apps for a day before purchasing!)

  4. Thank you ladies :-)
    Caroline, they do have a free trial app. That's how I learned about it. I found it on their website. Sneaky, sneaky. It only included three uppercase letters and three numbers, but at least you will be able to see if your kidabunks like it.
