Educational Apps for 6 through 11 years old
During Christmas David won a Tablet and blessed it to me as part of my Christmas present. Now, if truth be none I wasn’t sure I would like it or if I would even use it as I had bought myself a tablet a couple years ago but I have fallen in love with it and I use it a lot.
Only it is hard to be able to use because as soon as I look for it Charlie is on it. Or comes in and wants to take over what I am doing on the tablet. So I am thinking I will pay it forward and let Charlie have my tablet. Then I will go out and purchase one that is just mine for work.
So since I am going to give Charlie my tablet I wanted to make sure Charlie has learning applications to do. So today I researched on Amazon and found the following apps for Charlie. So I thought you might like checking them out as well.
