Monkey Word School Adventure (best Android apps for kids)
Another great THUP educational app, Monkey Word School Adventure provides six activities to help children learn letter and word recognition, blends and digraphs, and sight words. Really well presented with a cute monkey character who engages children and keeps them on task. Reviewed by Eleanor at Smart Apps for Kids, this app was given five stars. That's the maximum number of stars - it's that good!
This app is customizable so your child can work at his or her level, and parents can also adjust the activities according to the child's success rate. How good is that? Correct answers are given verbal praise and a celebratory animation from the monkey or chinchillas, whilst a wrong answer gets a vocalization from the animal with a head shake. Children are also rewarded with items for the chameleon's terrarium. The main thing missing from this fantastic little app is comprehensive progress tracking. That would just top it off.
