Guiding little ones through identifying emotions is no easy task. Help preschoolers learn to label anger, affection, excitement, frustration and other big feelings with iTouchiLearn Feelings for Preschool Kids.
Boasting three games and activities that help children in the “tantrum stage” learn how to socialize, this app does its job of encouraging kids to recognize and manage primal emotions. The music section features upbeat sing-along tunes, such as “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” for parents and kids to sing together. The interface is super easy for kids to use solo, offering parents a bit of quiet time to relax or join in on the fun. In one game, children simply touch the crisp cartoon graphics to match feelings to faces. In another, kids guess whether characters in a scene are sick, scared, sad or happy and then touch the appropriate icon.
This is a very visually oriented app—there's almost no text—so it’s age-appropriate for the littlest learners who may not be reading yet. Repetitive background music can get grating, but parents have the option of switching it off. A simple, no-frills “star” reward system works well to keep kids actively engaged in the content, making this an all-around app for exploring emotions.
