Khan Academy Kids


Khan Academy Kids is a fantastic FREE app for young learners. Embedded in the app are opportunities to create, as well as books, educational videos and engaging learning games that meet both math and ELA standards. If used purposefully and tied to content, this would be a great option for stations/centers in your classroom.
