June 4th: Timmy’s Kindergarten Adventure – $1.99

Created in partnership with a teacher, Timmy's Kindergarten Adventure focuses on the basic skills learned in Kindergarten: basic math, sight words, spelling, telling time, counting money, color mixing and more. This article was linked to the app's description - http://www.scholastic.com/resources/article/preparing-for-kindergarten/

The game starts outside Timmy's house. Tap on the school sign when you're ready to start. Timmy will need to complete 3 challenges on his way to school. Each time you start the game, it will pick up from the level you last completed. At the end of each challenge, you'll win a coin. If you make no mistakes, you will get two coins. These coins can be used to purchase mini games back at home. Once Timmy reaches the school, tap on the calendar day to select the activity you'd like to play. If you've already unlocked tolday's activity, you'll win a key to unlock another activity. Reach the school 7 times to unlock them all!


We liked this app so we purchased 20 copies.
