Kids love to play mobile games, but as parents, we all worry about what they’re playing. We understand that mobile apps are the future–and hey, we love them, too–but there’s only so much we can take. We want the bright side, not the brain numb side. Thankfully, Sylvan Learning aims to help make the decision about what mobile games kids should play a little easier with their newly launched mobile games network designed for kids called SylvanPlay.
This isn’t just a bunch of games, but an educational mobile games network targeting kids in 1st through 4th grade. SylvanPlay gives them grade-appropriate lessons in the form of games that will keep them entertained while they learn.
The network isn’t just one app either, but a group of eight apps that have been packaged together to help kids build their skills in reading, math, science, geography, strategic thinking and more. It’s a whole package designed to make learning accessible and fun. The games include:
- Critter Cruise: (Ages 6-9) Builds math and language skills on a trip across North America in a game exclusive to SylvanPlay. It features grade specific content and aligns with the Common Core Curriculum.
- Equator: (Ages 6-9) Builds math skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and order of operations by bringing balance to the equator in each of the four seasons. This is an exclusive SylvanPlay launch. (Tablet Only)
- Angle Asteroids: (Ages 6-9) Builds an understanding of angles as they blast asteroids out of the sky. This is an exclusive SylvanPlay launch.
- Pizza Party: (Ages 6-9) Helps kids learn about fractions by dividing up food. This is an exclusive SylvanPlay launch.
- Sushi Scramble: (Ages 6-9) Focuses on building language skills through word games. (Tablet Only)
- Get Rocky: (Ages 6-9) Fosters a love of science through a trip to the center of the Earth.
- Not Lost in The Universe: (Ages 6-9) Teaches how wind, sun, water, and heat create energy. (Tablet Only)
- Wonder Bunny Math Race: (Ages 3-8) Helps younger kids learn about math in a race to collect carrots.
These apps are just beginning of the SylvanPlay network which will be expanding to include games for kids all the way up to 6th grade. The introduction of new apps will give kids something new and different to play so they’ll keep on learning–always a good idea in our book! With a wealth of apps out there to choose from, it’s great to see a company like Sylvan–already a well known name in education–moving to the forefront.
SylvanPlay is available for iOS and Android with both free and paid content ranging in price from $.99 to $4.99.
It’s easy to find the apps by simply searching for “SylvanPlay” or the titles of the individual apps in the Apple App Store or Android’s GooglePlay store. And if you’re a current Sylvan Learning customer, you have access to all the SylvanPlay apps for free.
