If you compare what your childhood was like and what the environment is like for kids growing up these days, there will be a massive difference. For better or for worse, kids these days are exposed to technology from a very young age. Smartphones, computers and the internet are affecting how kids of this generation turn out to be and there is no reason you cannot leverage these tools for the betterment of your kids. Learning is a lot easier and more interactive than ever before. One such app that uses the great tools we have at our disposal is Everyday Sight Words.
Everyday Sight Words is an app from Nimble Minds which helps your kids touch and play with objects as they learn new words. An educational app which is aimed at kids aged 2-8, it effectively contextualizes words by organizing them by location (e.g. “bathroom,” “bedroom,” or “park”), and makes excellent use of audio learning cues. It also provides lots of positive reinforcement when the user succeeds which gives children a sense of achievement.
The app deals with objects that are seen in life on a regular basis. This allows kids to attach meaning to their environment faster, know the relationships of different objects, and learn their existence in relation to these objects – hopefully sparking a greater thirst for learning. Everyday Sight Words is a great app for parents who would like to use their phones and tablets as powerful learning tools.
