Happy Thursday, families! I have three sites to share with you that will be great resources to share with your kids. One site reviews games and toys, one site is a mobile app development company for children’s apps, and the third is a toolkit from the US Dept. of Education. You can find additional apps, websites, and videos on our Resources for Families page.
Avokiddo offers fun yet educational app games on different topics ranging from physics to play. The company not only develops games for kids for mobile devices, but they also make sure that the platform is kid-friendly: there are no ads, and it follows online privacy measures for children, or COPPA (the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act). Check out the Thinkrolls: Kings & Queens app. This app is for children ages 5 and up and features logic puzzles, simple machines for physics learning, and amedieval them.
Tech Age Kids gives product reviews on toys and games. They also feature science/technology/engineering/math activities for parents and grandparents to do with the young child in their lives. Check out their article “Coding Games For Kids – What’s New for 2017”.

These resources are divided into major themes that your child will encounter in the early ages, such as social-emotional learning, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and fostering literacy skills through reading and singing.
