These apps for kids learning to read are actually free. That’s right! Parents and educators can now find quality apps that help teach kids to read for free!
I love to use educational apps with my kids. They are a great way to supplement hands-on activities and play based learning opportunities.
They are especially useful when we have long waits at restaurants or appointments. I also include them in our homeschool lesson plans. My son loves the change of pace and actually learns a lot when using the apps.
Sometimes, the cost of apps can add up though. That’s why I am so happy about Amazon Underground!
You can now get access to premium apps & games that provide fun, education, and convenience. The Amazon Underground catalog of 100% free apps & games is part of the Amazon Appstore and gives you access to awesome content that you would normally have to pay for in “other” App and Play Store’s, but now at zero cost.
When I heard about this I was tiny bit skeptical about what apps would be available and if they would be full of ads, but I can assure you that there are some fantastic, quality apps and they are actually free. No ads or constant prompts for paid upgrades.
You should definitely head over to the Amazon Appstore and check the Amazon Underground catalog for lots of fun, educational games and interactive books for young kids, but I also did a bit of the legwork for you and searched through TONS of apps to find you the 10 best apps for kids learning to read.
