Ichi (One): Have story time anywhere with the FarFaria App
I like this app because my kids can read quietly and be entertained wherever we are. Also, it gives the entire family access to thousands of books on an iPad, kindle, phone, etc, so there are options for all ages! Try to turn screen time into story time with this “Netflix for Children’s Books” app. It’s great to be able to save books to the app so they can be read offline anywhere! For example, in a home office, at the park, in the car, and of course at bedtime.
Great for: Ages 2-9
Love Hooked on Phonics at much as I do?
I’m glad this system is in an app. It has educational games to keep kids engaged at home or on the phone anywhere. Even more, I love that it can sync children’s progress to all devices – so if my husband is on the road he’s up to speed on the kids’ progress, you can seamlessly access it through multiple devices and the kids can pick up where they left off.
Great for: Ages 2-8
Do your kids love video games and winning badges? we can leverage this to teach them coding.
Great for Ages 7-13, girls too!
