I am pining for an iPad again. This
time over the fabulous Reading Eggs apps available to download, thankfully more
are becoming available on Android, but I really fancy the Targeting Maths 3
app. My son is doing well with his reading
and now his writing, but Maths has probably been slightly neglected! It is hard trying to squeeze in all the
things we plan to help our children with, teaching them to swim, learning to
ride without stabilizers and saying please and thank you (along with a million
other hopes and aspirations!), so little apps to lend a hand to us frazzled
parents whilst still helping our children achieve can only be a good thing.
downloaded at our own cost Eggy Alphabet, the codes the lovely PR had were only
for iPads but given how much my eldest seems to be gaining from all things
Reading Eggs, I thought I could afford to splash out on the princely sum of
£1.20. Yes £1.20 seriously how can you
go wrong for such a fabulous price and its lots of fun too, so eldest happily
plays it without putting up a fight! He
has become more stubborn about certain things, because his end game is to get
on Skylanders on the Wii but if the app has enough to motivate him, he still
will be persuaded thankfully! With
dot-to-dot, drawing and the highlight of earning those famous golden eggs he
could not get enough of it.
available is Eggy 250 (£1.17), which helps your child recognise 250 words by
sight. This serves as a huge boost to
their reading capability as once they can recognise lots of individual words,
it becomes easier for them to read full sentences.
the prices involved I can highly recommend purchasing their apps, the learning
benefits are extremely helpful AND if you need something to keep the kids focused whilst
they are waiting for a doctors appointment for example, viola instant calm
concentration, rather than them running amuck!
Relocating the many magazines and leaflets, saying hi to the ailing
person next to them far too many times or running around looking far too healthy
all of a sudden just before their appointment… (I speak from experience!).
