Educational Apps for Homeschool (Sight Words, Learning & Counting Coins, and Pre-Algebra Math)

19 Mar

Hey everyone! Hope you all are feeling healthy & safe, especially with all of this going on in the world with COVID-19. Due to this virus I know many families(including mine) are now temporarily in the great yet challenging realm of homeschooling. I already had A LOT of respect for great teachers but yea wow, this is another reminder of that! One of my main goals with my educational apps is for them to be minimalistic but also helpful, interesting & vivid. Below are my educational apps that I believe could be helpful in the journey of learning for many kids who are now being homeschooled. These apps have been helpful for kids who were already homeschooled, in the classroom, and outside of school times, so hopefully your kid enjoys them as well regardless of their location of being educated. None of these apps require a login or even the internet after downloading, none of them contain ads, and all of them are available on the Apple, Google Play & Amazon app stores! Take care!

 

Word Owl’s Word Search are colorful and vivid word search block apps that are for aimed at four different levels of learning sight words. There’s an app for Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, and Third Grade. Each app features over 100 sight words, and some over 200 or 300 sight words depending on the grade. The sight words in these apps have been gathered from several different schools and books. Check out the links below for more information on each of these apps.

(Sight words are commonly used words that children are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognize these words when they see them without having to use any distracting strategies. Sight words account for a large percentage of the words used in literature for children. One advantage for children being able to recognize sight words automatically is that the child will be able to identify the majority of words in a book before they even attempt to read it. When the child is able to do that they’ll be able to concentrate on the meaning and comprehension as they read without having to stop to figure out the actual word.)
