Free and Cheap Kindle Fire Apps for 1/18

There are so many cute educational apps for kids that it was hard to pick just a few. Though we picked a couple that focused on words and language, there are plenty for teaching math and other skills. Enjoy!

As you progress through each mode, you'll play with longer words, starting with one and two-letter words in Preschool to six-letter words in Expert. Within each mode there are nine stages, many of which you'll have to unlock. So let's get going!
