learnIng IS FUN wIth Apps!
uddy Bear got an iPad for Christmas,
and he's loading it up with educational
and fun apps. One of the best things
about them is that you can get free versions to
start with to see if you like them before paying
for the upgrade. Here are a few of Buddy's new
Stack The States (Lite) * ages 7 and up
For iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch
This is a great educational app that's also lots
of fun for the entire
games help you
learn about state
state abbreviations, bordering
states, ﬂags and
The only drawback is that you
only can "earn" ﬁve
states in the free
(lite) version, so if
you get hooked on
ﬁlling up the map,
your parents will need
to buy the full version
for you for 99 cents.
This Stack The States app
helps youths age 7 and up
learn geography in a fun way.
Spelling City * ages 7 and up
For Android, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch
If you struggle with spelling, this app will have
you spelling like a champ in no time! This free
app includes 10 word lists and eight different
games. HangMouse, similar to the game Hangman, is fun to play, with its cat-and-mouse
theme. Find a letter? Then the mouse won't eat
the cheese at the top of the page.
Other fun games include word scrambles,
alphabetizing challenges and missing-letter quizzes. And don't think this game is
only for young kids - there's something
for every grade level, even SAT word
lists for high-school kids to study.
The Opposites *
ages 7 and up
For iPhone, iPad,
Expand your vocabulary with this fun
app. The game asks
you to match opposite words as they
ﬂoat down the screen.
Easier levels include
words such as up and
down and entrance and
exit. Do well and you
progress to the hardest levels, which include
more rare or technical
hand at my
word watch. It's easy.
I'll list three words for
you to ﬁnd. Read the
stories in Rural Missouri
and look for the words.
When you ﬁnd them,
send me a note telling
me the stories where
you found the words,
what each word means
as it's used in the story and your age.
If you get all the words right, your name
goes into a drawing to win one of our Buddy
Bear drawstring backpacks! We'll pick up to ﬁve
