Home schooling got fun with TinyTap

The Learning plans are built as courses. This allows my kid to progress as he goes. In addition, I can track his progress, and see how he is doing. Great app!

My kids love it! We speak Spanish at home, and it is very important for me that my kids practice and become fluent also in Spanish, TinyTap offers both! My kids know the ABCs in both languages and how to count :slightly_smiling_face: ”

Is It Any Good?

This award-winning educational app has an incredible breadth of resources made by and shared among its users. TinyTap: Kids' Learning Games is sort of like Teachers Pay Teachers but for digital materials and with the bonus of a built-in creation tool. Since many users -- teachers, parents, therapists, and kids -- generate content, the quality of the games and lessons varies widely. Also, some require payment while others share their creations for free. Creators can choose to share their personally made content with only their kid, their class, or the entire TinyTap community. Though the option to search by grade level and language is very helpful, there's more content for younger children than for kids in middle school. The creation tool is step by step and very simple to use -- no coding necessary. Since teaching is often a step to mastery, this crowdsourced learning is a great motivational and learning tool.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
