Lily has been interested in wind power for quite some time. The main reason for this being that there is a wind farm about 10 miles from our house.

Kids Numbers & Math

Kids Numbers & Math Lite (free)
Kids Numbers & Math ($2.99)

I appreciate that Lily’s teacher gives app recommendations. Our issue is that the apps are that most are only available for iPad. He wasn’t sure of comparable Android apps.

After searching, I found this app.

It has counting from 1 to 20, which Navy has a lot of fun with. Shake the phone, and it goes to counting stars.

Addition

The addition is challenging enough for Lily. When you shake the phone, the apples fall. Shake it again, the pears fall.

Subtraction.

TIP: Disable the swipe in settings. If you accidentally swipe the screen, the game switches to another agent you’re in the middle.

So far, we’ve only used the Lite (free) version, but both kids ask to “play the math game” on my phone.

Highly Recommended!

I’d love some educational kid’s app recommendations! Please leave them in the comments.

Lily’s 1st Grade Picture

Taken Oct. 2013

Lily brought home her school pictures today. Again, I’m very impressed with Inter-State Studios.

Adding the embellishments to her portrait were free (some do cost). I can also order online if I forget to send her envelope in.

Throwback Thursday: Kindergarten

It’s hard to believe that this time last year, Lily was in kindergarten. She was learning to write her letters and numbers.

For kindergarten, I saved almost every worksheet, coloring page, and craft project. Her backpack from last year is filled with papers that she brought home.

First grade, not so much. I take pictures to show family and friends how well she does on a project or test

What a difference a year makes!
