Voted best by Sarah - Fun Educational Apps and Beth- iGame Mom
I'm in love. Period. I am in love with Splash Math Grades 1-5.

Fun Educational Apps for KidsKids Discover Galaxies- Exploring the Vast Universe

Voted best by Julie - Fun Educational Apps
The photography used in Kids Discover Galaxies comes from such respected sources as NASA, Harvard University, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. The pictures of different galaxies enhance the text and make it more understandable, and video clips offer additional insights. My favorite one gives you the sensation of hurtling through space at the speed of light. All of the apps in the Kids Discover Series are great, but this one is my favorite.

Mr. Thorne’s Times Table Terra- An Alternative to Traditional Flashcards

Voted Best by Julie - Fun Educational Apps
Apps for tines tables - Up until now, Mr. Thorne has been known primarily for phonics and spelling apps. Recently, he introduced a new app in the App store that focuses on improving multiplication skills. Mr. Thorne's Times Table Terra shows the same off-beat style that has made his previous apps (along with his collection of YouTube videos) so successful.

Free App: Learn Spelling with Fun - VocabularySpellingCity

Voted Best by Beth - iGameMom
Now kids are back to school. This means weekly spelling lists started. I found a great app that can help the busy parents keep track of the lists, and ensure the kids are learning the words with fun: VocabularySpellingCity. It is free.
With the app, your child will be able to learn the words from the list you or the teacher gave them. You do have to have an account (FREE to sign up) with them and have to create the list on their website within your account. But once you have the lists, kids can play games based on the words on your lists and learn.

CyberChase Shape Quest!

Voted best by Sarah - Fun Educational Apps
From PBS KIDS and Cyberchase comes Shape Quest, a captivating app combining games, puzzles and 3D augmented reality! Shape Quest challenges kids ages 6-9 to use geometry and spatial reasoning to hone their problem solving skills.

Compound Words Montessori

Voted best by Julie - Fun Educational Apps
Compound Words Montessori is an app that will improve reading, spelling, and language skills, and it's perfect for this age. It's designed like a puzzle, with each block containing only part of the compound word. The object of the game is to arrange the blocks so that all the connecting words make actual compound words, like greenhouse, teaspoon, seashore, lighthouse, etc.
