5 Kid-ucational Apps for Android
When I was still a kid, my first teacher was my mom. She taught me how to count numbers with my tiny fingers, answer the most famous math question, “1+1=?” and most especially, sing the alphabet song as I sway my head to the beat. We might say, “Been there, done that” to ourselves as we are now grown-ups. (I might sound like I’m 50 years older here!)
Yes, learning from the basic and traditional way is fun but living in a digital era now offers a lot of new things on how we can learn or rather, how we can educate our kids, cousins, nieces and every child that we truly care of. Everyday, we wake up in this app-obsessed world, right? So, there’s no escape to the fact that in this world, education can now happen right at the palm of our hand with our Android devices. This app review will help each one of us to be advocates of good education as I present to you 5 Kid-ucational Apps for Android!
Animal Sounds with Pictures

I love the idea that flash cards are now turned into an app which is very convenient for every parent or teachers who are fond of using this as a tool for teaching. When I was still a kid, my mom also has her animal flash cards with a bit of description about each animal. What I find amazing about this app is the animal sounds! It’s funny to reminisce that my mom would make the animal sound as she portrays the different animal on each flash card. Now, parents or teachers don’t need to act silly just to educate the little youngsters!
This app could have been better if there would be a brief information about each animals and a bit of tweaking with the design. A brighter and more colorful user interface will make this app more appealing to kids as they learn new things with the animal kingdom.

Kids Reading (Preschool) FREE
Teaching kids how to read and pronounce words are a bit of a pain in the neck. As kids try to learn to pronounce words, most of the time the tendency would be mispronouncing words in the cutest possible way.
Developed by Intellijoy, is an app which allows kids to learn how to read and pronounce three-letter-words in an interactive way.
This interactive educational app allows the children to learn how to blend sounds together to form, read and spell words that are made up of three letters only.
Unfortunately, kids won’t encounter words that are longer than three-lettered words in this app. Kids Reading assumed that children who uses this app are already familiar with the basic alphabet sounds. In case your children aren’t aware yet of the phonic sounds, Kids Reading suggest that you try their Kids ABC Phonics or Kids ABC Letters.
I love reading and spelling words way back in my preschool days. It’s a great idea to develop an interactive app like this where kids will learn the basics of reading and spelling words. I still like the fact that this app is only limited to three-lettered words since kids’ minds still can’t absorb words that are longer than three letters. Agree? The cute, bright and colorful user interface of the app adds excitement to the kids’ pleasure of learning.
