Each of my children have their own Amazon Fire Tablet that I was able to score last year on Cyber Monday. It was the perfect gift for each of them because I mainly wanted it to keep them occupied for a fraction of the price. I want to share with you the best FREE learning apps available though Amazon Underground.Many times my children have downloaded apps that have cost me money, a lot of money that I wasn’t happy about. Now I know that with Amazon Underground, they can download apps that are actually free.I’ve compiled a list of FREE apps that each of my kids use to help them with school work and help them with their problem solving. I’ve separated it by years for Elementary aged children that will help you as parents make the right choices on what is the most appropriate free app for them.
- Kindergarten – Elmo Loves ABC’s
This app allows the child to trace the upper and lower case ABC’s. You can track your child’s progress and see how long they’ve used the app. It comes with fun coloring pages to learn the colors a little easier and you can watch Sesame Street videos.
- First Grade – Endless Reader
I love this game for my first grader. She can touch a work and it makes the noise that the letter sounds like and you find the matching one. It’s a lot of fun and it gives you a silly scenario at the end of what those words and sentences mean.
This app features subtraction, addition, multiplication and division and it features them in games. It is a timed game and gives multiple choice answers and if you get it wrong, you stop running.
- Third Grade – Third Grade Learning Games
This game actually comes for all grades but this one for third graders is perfect. It has a variety of subjects the kids can choose in math and language arts.
- Fourth Grade – Planet Genesis
Any child who loves Star Wars pretty much loves space. This app shows kids the difference in the sizes of the solar system, teaches them the planets and you can do gravity simulation.
Fifth graders are all about learning the states in the USA. This app helps identify states and their capitals to help with all those state reports!
There are a lot of games available through Roblox and my kids love it. I figure by time they’re in sixth grade they should at least have a little fun sometimes. This gives them the options to choose what game they’re interested in that day and the opportunity to make honest choices if you tell them to choose a good game. 😉Leila also loves to play ABC Mouse which does require a membership but it has been worth every cent. She’s learned new techniques for sounding out letters and it’s helping her form her words better. She’s also a preemie baby born 10 weeks early so she needs a little extra help catching up to her classmates.
All of these apps have helped my children in so many ways. I love that educational apps are a thing and that they’re so advance. Remember though, Amazon Underground is only supported on 5th Generation (2012 – newer) and newer Fire tablets, and Android phones.
