Magic School Bus

Where I watch it: Netflix Ages my kids have loved it: 3-5 and counting Can be watched in Spanish: Yes! Why: super fun. builds science concepts without being boring.  

Magic School Bus Rides Again

Where I watch it: Netflix Ages my kids have loved it: 3-5 and counting Can be watched in Spanish: Yes! Why: super fun. builds science concepts without being boring.  

Coilbook

Where I watch it: YouTube Ages my kids have loved it: 3-5 and counting Can be watched in Spanish: Some episodes available in Spanish Why: It makes great use of things a lot of kids are interested in like trains and cars and uses them to make learning about shapes and letters and colors pretty fun.  

Puffin Rock and Llama Llama

Where I watch it: Netflix Ages my kids have loved it: 2-5 and counting Can be watched in Spanish: Yes! Why: I mostly like these because you can watch them in Spanish. It's exposure to conversational Spanish at a fairly easy level and the stories are engaging enough that they are entertaining to kids even in a language they can't understand...yet.  

Daniel Tiger

Where I watch it: PBS Kids Ages my kids have loved it: 1-4 ish Can be watched in Spanish: I don't know Why: I like it because it does an incredible job of giving kids a framework for understanding their emotions and tools for navigating them. We have used Daniel Tiger songs countless times in our day-to-day life. I couldn't recommend this show enough.  

Planet Earth

Where I watch it: Netflix Ages my kids have loved it: Well, love is a strong word. Can be watched in Spanish: I don't know Why: This show is paced and visually breathtaking. My kids don't really LOVE it, but they get super into it when I have it on.    

Maralynn’s growing list of favorite learning apps

Duolingo

Ages my kids have loved it: 3-5 and counting Why: We use this as a reward and it's been a huge hit. Pre-reading, i work through the 5-minute lesson with them, but they get to hear Spanish sentences and learn some basic vocabulary. Post-reading, they get to form sentences and practice translation. I really love this app! I wish there was a dedicated kid version that had a lot more pictures associated with the words, but we are loving this in its current form too!  

Geo Touch

Ages my kids have loved it: 5 and counting Why: It uses simple interactivity and a lot of repetition to teach the location on a map of states and countries as well as associating capital cities. It was fun to watch my child learn where California, Florida, Maine, New Mexico, Montana, Michigan, Tennessee and so many other states were located after just a couple days of 'playing'.  

Dragonbox - Algebra 5+

Ages my kids have loved it: 5 and counting Why: This app builds algebra logic without being explicit or boring. Kids learn that their goal is to isolate the box on one side of the screen. Later the 'box' becomes the letter 'x' and the functionality builds, even getting into fractions. I'm a big fan of kids getting exposure to ideas years ahead of when they have to formally learn them, and this app does a great job of doing that.  

Dragonbox - Elements

Ages my kids have loved it: 5 and counting Why: Like their Algebra 5+ app described above, Dragonbox's Elements makes learning math logic super fun! Under the framework of building an army to defeat a throng of spiders, kids build all kinds of shapes (Scalene, Isosceles, and Equilateral triangles, Quadrilaterals, Trapzoid, Rhombus) and learn about angles and their properties. It's so fun that I find it difficult not to take over. I'm a huge fan.  

iTrace

Ages my kids have loved it: 3-5 and counting Why: This app combines fun letter tracing with prompts to show the order in which the lines should be drawn, broken up with stars and an object search game that moves the student on to the next section. I like that they have settings that allow alternate formation of certain letters.
