You've heard of the saying "the early bird gets the worm," a saying can be applied to so many things in life, and getting ready for school is no exception. The Kindergarten Readiness app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a fun way for your child to really prepare for Kindergarten. The app offers a nice mixture of games and activities that span across 30 of the most important skills your child will need to understand. The app even has a comprehensive checklist so that you can be sure he or she is coming along when it comes to understanding the topics.
While you make think you’re covering all the most important topics with your child an app like the Kindergarten Readiness one can really help you ensure everything has been discussed. Think of it as your own personal lesson plan that is helping to give kids the skills they need in order to perform their very best in Kindergarten. It also means that your child will be that much more prepared and likely have a smoother transition in Kindergarten and not feel overwhelmed. As mentioned there are games and activities that span across 30 different skills.
The app has just recently been updated with some stability improvements and bug fixes. It scores a solid 3.5 out of five stars from users but doesn't yet have any customer comments.
Fabulous graphics and sounds
The Learning Experience
Because the Kindergarten Readiness app teaches through a variety of games and activities, kids won't feel as though it is school or some boring lesson. Instead they are busy having fun while they work on such skills as early literacy, early math, motor skills, cognitive development, social skills, and communication skills. What's great about the app is that it helps parents determine what areas their child is struggling and where help is needed. You can then focus on those areas and help them out before they even start school. The idea is that by the time they reach Kindergarten they will be ready.
Some of the areas the app deals with are learning to recognize beginning sounds, working on patterns, recognizing number sets, and more. Because parents will be working alongside kids it is also the perfect opportunity for parents to praise their child's progress and help to build their confidence. The user interface is incredibly simple to use and the graphics and sounds have been carefully chosen and put together.
