Apps for Elementary School

Kids learn so much about the world around them during elementary school. They're learning not only how to read and do math, but also how to work through conflict at recess and what being a good friend is all about. They're also exploring what passions they might pursue as they get older. With concerns mounting about screen time, parents want to make the most out of the time kids are on screens. These apps can help support all kinds of learning and keep it fun. (Follow up with these strange but wonderful learning apps: 20 Weirdest Apps That Can Help Your Kid Learn.)
