I recently stumbled across Cupcake Digital, which offers some amazing kids apps, including apps from the ever popular Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! series. In addition to these fun children's apps, Cupcake Digital also has a "Grown-Up's Corner," where they offer FREE downloadable worksheets for you to use with your pre-schoolers, as a way to help them practice the important skills they will be required to know as as part of the new Core Curriculum State Standards for kindergarten.
Even though my daughters have a couple more years until they head off to kindergarten, Savannah will be heading to pre-school this fall -- I still can't believe how fast she is growing up. So, to help prep her for pre-school, I have been using flash cards, workbooks and other educational tools that make learning the necessary skills like counting, colors, shapes, etc. easier and fun. Tonight I will be sharing two of the recent Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! apps with the girls and will send a review over the weekend with you on these apps. But, in the meantime, I plan to spend some time this afternoon when the girls nap, to browse the "Grown-Up's Corner" at Cupcake Digital more, as well as their blog, and print out some of their educational handwriting worksheets to use with the girls. I know they will love these as they feature their favorite Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! characters, and let them practice handwriting by first tracing the letters of the alphabet, before having to try on their own.
If you have pre-schoolers who will be starting kindergarten soon, why not check out the "Grown-Up's Corner" at Cupcake Digital. Even though they only have the A-Z handwriting worksheets up right now, they plan to have more worksheets soon. So, make a point to bookmark Cupcake Digital and check in regularly, as they continue to add more educational worksheets ans share ways that you can support your child's early learning. :-)

When a child interacts with a tablet, smartphone or e-reader we know they are being given a way to play, laugh, learn and grow. We love being part of that experience.
