VIDEO: Apps to keep your kids learning this summer!

Here’s some of the apps I talked about on HLN to keep your kids’ brains active and healthy over this upcoming summer vacation.

1. Sushi Monster. This great math game lets you feed sushi to a monster to test your math abilities. Part of Scholastic’s FASTT Math program for grades 2-9+ English/Spanish program, FASTT Math promises to help students gain fast fluency of Common Core State Standards for math in just 10 minutes a day.  Only available for the iPad, you can download Sushi Monster in the App Store today.

2. For kids aged 3-7 who need help with their dexterity and recognizing words, the Build a Word app is based on the hit PBS show Word World.

3. Brain POP. The Brain POP Featured Movie app aren’t just videos your kid will passively watch on their iPad. No, these videos require your kids to pay close attention to what’s happening in the videos because there’s a quiz at the end! The app itself is free from the App Store, though additional modules will come at a cost.
