Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
PBS’ first app designed specifically for parents, PBS Parents Play & Learn provides more than a dozen games parents can play with their kids, each themed around a familiar location – including at the grocery store, at home, in the kitchen, and many more.
The bilingual (English/Spanish) PBS Parents Play & Learn App makes it easy for parents to seize upon those daily “teachable moments” through theme-based interactive games and simple hands-on activities that connect math and literacy skills to everyday experiences.
The app is designed to build on a child’s natural curiosity about his or her everyday world and to encourage dialogue between kids and parents. Each game comes with a parent note that provides information about the math and literacy skills woven into the game and suggestions for effective ways to interact with a child while playing the game to maximize the learning experience.
--13 interactive games
--parent notes with each game
--52 easy hands-on activities
--a free-play sticker area
--weekly push notifications with more ideas for parents
--completely bilingual (English/Spanish)
What's New in Version 1.50
Great for bilingual families (English - Spanish)
We use this app together quite often with our preschool children. The activities in Spanish are great to reinforce concepts and vocabulary that kids learn in English in School. I wish some of the games in Spanish were customized to fit vocabulary and phonetic (and cultural) awareness using words in Spanish rather than a mere translation from English. It is lot to ask, considering PBS has done a great job providing this bilingual app that even has tips for parents both in English and Spanish. Great job PBS!
Wonderful for a 4 yr. Old
I love this app. It's great for my 4 yr old grandson. The program gives kids to think and reason along with co-ordinating their fine motor skills. There are choices for easy and hard as well. Recommended by our PBS station. It's a winner!
