Great Apps For Kids

In addition to our participation with Mensa's "Excellence In Reading" program, we are featuring games for kids that can be accessed through Mensa's website.

American Mensa Academy features intuitive games that teach patterns, review basic math questions, states and countries, English and grammar skills. The game series keeps a score and allows the player to keep track of their progress.

After testing the games, our favorite was Word Invasion:

 which teaches parts of speech: nouns, pronouns, adjectives, etc.
