Let's face it, it is a very digital age we live in nowadays and as much as I would love to hang on to my nostalgic ideals of yesteryear and raise Micah with 5 TV channels, a land line and an old adding machine, it just isn't possible or prudent, for that matter. Who am I to hold him back, just because I want to live in the past?!
I have been very wary about letting him play games or use "gadgets", but at the urging of his Dad, I bought him a tablet for his birthday. He doesn't play with it everyday, usually not even every other day and when he does, I am very picky as to what he plays.
Kid's Academy, one of the most successful developers of apps for kids, has released what might be their biggest app yet. 123 Tracing is an excellent educational app designed for younger students. This cute game helps kids trace numbers and get in the habit of writing and forming these letters that they will use the rest of their lives. The free version of app is live and available to download viaiTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
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.
