Best apps for 5 year old kids.


Being 5 year old is an exciting time for children because they enter a new world of kindergarten and their daily routine changes a lot. They are getting used to things like classes or homework. 5 year olds are very curious and want to know how the world around them works. They are actively looking for answers, ask many questions and form their theories. Children this age are even able to conduct simple investigations on their own and they love to try simple scientific experiments. Preschool kids can tell stories on their own and they are aware that every story has the begining, the middle and the ending. Kids this age love creative play with music and sounds, as well as with crayons, paint or modeling clay. They even can compose music and their drawings have more and more details. 5 year old kids learn how to read the clock, use thermometer or scales. They start to write and read, they recognize letters and can associate them with sounds. Of course every child is different and it's very hard to say if the 5 year old should be able to read. Some kids this age are able to read simple stories or even books, some are just starting to read words and it's also ok. Their math thinking is more abstract. Kindergarteners know the basic shapes, recognize colors, know how to solve simple addition or subtraction tasks.
The educational apps for kids are helping them to:
  • increase their creativity in music and arts
  • learn basic math concepts, geometry shapes (also 3D figures)
  • write lowercase and uppercase letters
  • read and spell
  • learn to tell time
  • create their own tales and build more complex sentences
  • learn to solve simple addition and subtraction
