Reviews

Introduction

There's no reason that fun can't be combined with learning and education which is exactly what the First Grade Learning Games app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone sets out to prove. This app has been developed specifically for kids ages six through eight who are in the process of learning all the basics of first grade. There is no question about it first grade can be tricky for many kids so why not provide them with a little added help that is delivered in an engaging and entertaining way.

Appealing to Kids

When delivering a lesson to kids one of the best ways to ensure the lesson is not only understood but also enjoyed is to deliver it in a way that is appealing to them. The First Grade Learning Games app strives to do just that by offering a variety of mini games, 10 to be exact, that focus on various subjects that are taught in first grade. Kids will learn about fractions, math, reading, compound words, spelling, and contractions. You may even want to start them with these lessons before they actually begin first grade to act as an introduction. The app can then be used throughout their school year to reinforce content being taught by their teacher.

The app was last updated well over a year ago but even still it enjoys a strong four out of five star customer rating. In its last update there were some small bug fixes made to ensure smoother performance. This one requires iOS 5.1 or later to use.
