Apps for an Elementary Classroom

Endless Alphabet

This app comes from the creators of Sesame Street's The Monster at the End of This Book — so you know it's bound to be silly and cute. The monster-themed activities teach children new words and how to spell them. The games don't have time limits or scores, so it's stress-free fun for kids. Some words might be too advanced for preschool children. Make the 99-cent in-app purchase to remove ads.
