What's it about?

In ITOUCHILEARN LIFE SKILLS: MORNING ROUTINES FOR PRESCHOOL KIDS, kids go through a series of short scenarios. First they watch a child demonstrate an action like getting dressed or eating breakfast. A song accompanies each scene to the tune of "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush" with lyrics related to the activity. Then the scene repeats, allowing kids to take part in the action by tapping on relevant objects like the brush or milk. Extra activities include a jigsaw puzzle and music mode, which shows each scene with song lyrics.

Is it any good?


iTouchiLearn Life Skills: Morning Routines for Preschool Kids does a good job of showing kids what needs to get done each morning, especially if they need to get to school on time. The interactive elements are simple, but can help kids remember the essential things needed for each step, like the toothbrush for brushing teeth or using your hands to wash your face. The song is easy to learn, and even parents may find themselves singing it to keep their kids moving along in the morning.

As for improvements, it would be nice if the app had ways for kids to track completion of their own daily routines with something like a printable or in-app chart. In addition, the app could reflect more diversity among the characters in the animations.

Families can talk about...

  • Talk to your kids and personalize each routine in the app. Ask them "What do you pack in your backpack?" or "What time do you wake up in the morning?"

  • Make a chart to help your kids remember each step in their morning routine and to motivate them in the mornings.
