7 Android Apps for Young Learners

Are you an Android device owning parent?

Are you looking for fun, interactive ways to help your school-aged children learn sight words and better understand math using your Android devices?

If you did not already know, Google Play houses thousands of high-quality children’s apps for practically every need and grade level. For me, I needed apps for my kindergartner who is a visual learner and is having difficulty retaining some of the auditory information being given to him.

So with that, I went searching for apps on Google Play that are easy to navigate, offer very little to no ads, are able to keep my son engaged and learning, and won’t take up much space on my Android smartphone.

Below is a list of ten free apps for kids that have been tried and tested by my son to see what would work best for his particular learning style.

If you are an iDevice user, here is a list of apps for the iPhone/iPad.
