ABCya Games

ABCya Games

Fall 2016 Mobile Apps
Ages: 5 - 11 yrs.
Platform: iPad

The free version of the ABCya app includes six Games of the Week, which is a good sample of what's available, but a subscription ($4.99/month) grants access to over 200 games and activities. Designed for children preK through fifth grade, the games are divided into grade level and by category: Letters, Numbers, Holiday, Strategy, and Skills.

Younger children can play a Memory-style game in which they match letter name/sound with a word/picture, count fish while avoiding sharks, read storybooks, or decorate cakes and cookies. Older children can create crossword puzzles, play bingo (in English and Spanish), or play an Indiana-Jones-style game where players have to skip count to move through the levels. All of the games are easy to understand and simple to play.
