A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn to differentiate concepts such as today, tomorrow, and yesterday. They can learn the days of the week and months of the year, seasons, and holidays, and they can track their own appointments. Kids can challenge themselves using easy, medium, or hard levels. The easy level requires one-word answers, whereas the hard level requires a complete sentence with correct punctuation. Because of the old-school interface, twitchy mechanics, and correct answers counted as wrong, LearnMe Calendar may frustrate some kids.

Ease of Play

Simplistic directions guide kids through each page, though the interface is not intuitive.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that LearnMe Calendar is a basic calendar app to help kids understand the days of the week and months of the year. Kids who are struggling with the concepts of today, tomorrow, and yesterday can clearly see the dates marked. You can increase the rigor in the settings to reinforce writing answers in complete sentences and using correct punctuation. The app also is helpful for kids who struggle with executive functioning skills, as they can add dates of homework or tests right into the calendar. The interface and mechanics are awkward, and some games -- such as dragging and dropping holidays onto a calendar -- don't always function correctly.

What's it about?

LEARNME CALENDAR is a basic calendar app that helps kids differentiate among today, tomorrow, and yesterday. Kids practice days of the week, matching months, and writing answers to questions using complete sentences. It tracks a kid's progress and has a real voice that responds to answers. It can benefit kids who need to enter due dates and other school activities to help them prioritize and stay on task.

Is it any good?

The goals of the games are to learn months, days, seasons, and holidays, but since it hasn't been updated in a few years, the holiday dates for the current year are off. Dragging static holiday dates, such as New Year's Day, onto the calendar results in a "wrong" answer message. Also, the drag-and-drop functionality is glitchy and awkward. The simple interface and games may appeal to some kids and work better for those who are distracted by fancy graphics and animations, but most kids won't be enticed and might be frustrated.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about important dates for them, such as birth dates, and enter those on the calendar together.

  • Ask your child: What day of the week is it? What day is tomorrow? Are any holidays coming up?
