Kid’s Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.
Kids Academy is hosting an awesome giveaway!  Head over, download the app, and write a review in the App Store.  At the end of August, Kids Academy will randomly choose 2 lucky winners who will each win a $100 Amazon gift card!  Sweet!
2. Write a short honest review on the iTunes App Store. If you have already reviewed this app, simply update your review and you will be entered!
Good Luck!

Who’s ready for back to school? My three-year-old is starting pre-preschool this fall, so technically he’s not going “back”. It’s only going to be two days a week, but I’m pretty sure you can hear my mom-heart breaking over here! I made these little notebook paper tags to make myself feel better. They end up just about business card size and are perfect for adding onto backpacks and jackets – the things kids are so good at losing!
