My Story – Book Maker for Kids on the App Store on iTunes.

This is a really wonderful app that I (um…and my son) have been playing with for the past year. It is a really great story telling app for children. You can create your very own e-storybook with your personal illustrations or photos and text plus add your child’s voice reading the story out loud. It was great to use this to create our own stories out of spelling words we were working on. You may want to create your own leveled readers for your child to illustrate and record themselves. I really love the feature that allows you to share these stories as well via social . They have made some awesome improvements over the original app. My Story is normally $3.99, and it is currently on sale for just $0.99! A bargain. Really don’t miss out on this one.

Recommended for pre-K to 2nd.

Mystery Math Museum on the App Store on iTunes.

I had to break away from my Christmas holiday to post about this awesome app deal. Artgig makes some really cool math app for kids that are engaging without being tedious and involve interactive game play that just happens to include math practice. Mystery Math Museum is normally $2.99, but you can grab it absolutely free right now.

This is an award winning app that is a sequel to Mystery Math Town. The goal is the find the dragonflies while exploring the various museums which are maze-like. The app is quirky and visually engaging. I also like the fact that it can be used for multiple players with different skill levels which works great for families with multiple children. You can work on all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).

Recommended for students working at grade 1 to 6 level of mathematics.

Math Slicer Free on the App Store on iTunes.

Sorry for the long silence on my blog! Things have been crazy with the ramp up of our homeschool co-op and prepping for a couple of classes that I am teaching for this fall.

I don’t have a lot of time to write a detailed review, but I wanted to bring this awesome app to your attention. This is an award winning app that has gone free. (normally $ 0.99) If your kid likes Fruit Ninja or other slicing games, then this is right up your alley and just in time for school. Kids need to practice their math facts. You can do it with flashcards or you can do it in a fun way like with Math Slicer. You can practice all four operations. The game offers different levels of play as well.
