If they’re little tykes, they might dig Endless Wordplay, a fun app that builds letter-sound recognition and helps kids start to spell and rhyme. It’s free, though after three games you’ll need to cough up $7 for more lessons. Highly worth it, if you consider it’s a way to put your kids in front of an iPad for a little while and not feel guilty about it.

For your elementary/middle-schoolers, Photo Math is like having a math tutor in your pocket. Simply take a picture of a math problem (integers, algebra, or any other math problem that’s over a parent’s head), and it will spit out the answer, showing you how it got there, step-by-step. Yes, this could be used to cheat on math homework. But the way I see it, the answer to every thing is on the web these days— kids need to learn how to use tools like this for good, not evil.

A $7/month subscription lets you tap into millions of user-generated flash cards and study notes, organized by school, class, and even professor. Plus all your notes travel with you, on every device, so there’s never a moment when you can’t be cramming for that next test.

Catch Hallmark Home & Family on the Hallmark channel today at 10a Pacific/9a Central! And have a lovely weekend!

  1. I saw you today on the home & family and saw this homework for kids, I got to share this info with my Young adults at our churc . Thank you so much for creating something like this, our young school kids we work with really need this ??

  2. Hi Carley! You are {as always!} amazing. Thank you for the Photo Math recommendation. I knew you would have an idea for this math-challenged mom as I struggle to “help” my son with his homework. You rule!

    1. Yeah, Erin… my kids have long passed the point where I can “help” them in math… unless my blank stares are helpful. 🙂
