How to Raise a Reader


Music and Media Counting Apps


Kids can practice math at all levels with terrific digital tools. Young kids can develop early skills such as number sense, counting, basic addition, and shapes, while older kids can work on algebra and geometry concepts. Find an app that provides fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, tracing, rote counting, guessing and open ended questioning.
