A&R Entertainment: “Learning is Fun”
These Educational Apps for Preschool and Early Elementary school aged children are available for Android and all iOs devices. AR-Entertainment offers a few for Windows 8 as well. This is only a small selection of the colorful, engaging, and truly education games available. The AR-Entertainment products also come in French, German, Spanish, and Italian.
My First Tangrams: Ages 2+
LITE version – Free
The Lite version only includes 4 sample puzzles but that is definitely enough to see if this App interests your little one.
Full Version – $1.99
Write the Alphabet for Kids: Ages 4+
Introductory Version – Free
Allows your child to trace letters “A – G”; again enough to see if this program fits the learning needs of your child. App provides practice with upper, lower, cursive, and a mystery font I’ll call ‘fancy’.
Full Version – $1.99
Weighing Exercises for Kids: Ages 5+
Available in Full Version only – $1.99
This App teaches how to use a scale by weighing fruits with different masses. Offers 3 difficulty levels, the game is not exactly intuitive to use, but once mastered is a great tool for teaching this sometimes difficult math concept.
Learning tables is fun: Ages 5+
Initial download is Free (+ and -, only). Offers in-app upgrades (if want x and /).
“Kids from 4 to 10 will have fun learning additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions tables (up to 10) with this game.” Adults 45+ may also find the App a great way to whittle away some time waiting at the bank or in the grocery checkout line!
Good To Know: You can receive a full refund for any App you download if you uninstall it within 15 minutes of purchase. This is a fabulous feature, if you don’t get distracted right after you download it! I have “bought” more awful Apps that way!! Also, if you allow your child to play the games on your phone unsupervised and have a curious child (like mine), but see you set up a password to protect them from downloading unwanted Apps as well!!
