60+ Educational Apps for the Kindle Fire

Most of us have purchased a Kindle Fire Tablet for our children in recent years. Reading and playing games make them perfect for kids and the price makes them affordable for parents. But, don’t forget about the opportunity to use them educationally in your home homeschool!

I know some of you may be thinking but I don’t want to use screens in my homeschool. We have all heard the stories about kids addicted to screens and the negative effects screen time can have on your homeschool and your kids. However, there are many benefits to incorporating screen time into your homeschool day too. 

Educational apps are a great option for roadschooling, long car rides, and time spent in waiting rooms. We use educational apps and screen time as an incentive to get through challenging or boring lessons. 

Don’t be affraid to use screens in your homeschool!

Feel less guilty about incorporating screens into your homeschool day with these 60+ educational Kindle Fire apps. Perfect for homeschooling on the go and those times when homeschool mom needs a break!

We love using screens as a resource in our homeschool. One of the many ways we do that is by using eductaionl apps on our Kindle Fire. I know screentime can have mixed opinions but for us we have found they can be great for long car rides, days when I am unable to teach for some reason, or as an incentive.

I love knowing that even when I hand my daughter her tablet she is still learning. There are lots of great apps out there that will ignite your childs love for learning. I’ve searched the Amazon Apps Store and put together an extensive list of educational apps.
