Expert Top Tips: Best Apps for Kids

Each week we will be bringing you 5 top tips from experts in their field. This week we have asked Michelle Roman, Mum of 2 for her top 5 educational apps for kids to help with homeschooling. Michelle has always used (and tested!) a multitude of apps to support home learning with great success!

1.Reading Eggs

Reading Eggs is the online reading program that helps children learn to read. Hundreds of online reading lessons, phonics games and books for ages 2–13.

This app has a 1-month free trial

2.Hairy Phonics

Hairy Phonics develops phonemic awareness. This is a particularly important skill for those with dyslexia. Designed for 5-7 years.

Hairy Phonics 2 introduces the next set of vowel digraphs that every child needs to learn. Two vowels join together and make one sound (vowel digraphs).

Occasionally free, please check the price on their website.

3.Teach Your Monster To Read Again

Create a monster and take it on an adventure through a magical world. Travel to exciting places, meet fun characters, play games and win prizes as your monster learns the first steps of reading. Minigames help children to develop speed and accuracy of letter recognition.

Occasionally free, please check the price on their website.

4.Duo Lingo

Duolingo is the most popular language-learning platform and the most downloaded education app in the world, with more than 300 million users. The company's mission is to make education free, fun, and accessible to all. Duolingo is designed to feel like a game and scientifically proven to be effective.

Occasionally free, please check the price on their website.

5.Medical Mavericks

We inspire the next generation of medics and scientists by taking real medical and sports science equipment into schools, colleges & events all over - and now online! 

Can be accessed on Facebook or through their website.

We hope these apps provide your children with hours of fun and learning at home!
