Children often ask questions like: "Do I have school today?" and "Is my swimming lesson this afternoon?" or "How many nights before we go to grandma and grandpa?" This iPad app is the answer to all these questions and much more. A fun and educational week planner for toddlers and pre-schoolers!
Week Planner for Kids helps children from the age of 3 to learn the structure of the day and week though the use of recognizable icons. By using this app, they quickly learn to comprehend what week routines there are and what special activities are planned. Your child learns to plan and make choices in a playfully way.
The days of the week have distinct colours and are pronounced when clicked upon. The app works with a set of universal icons that represent a wide range of activities. Each icon has its own associated sound. Your child can also make its own icons by drawing, writing a text or uploading a picture. Through a range of weather icons, weather situations can be identified. Additionally, a reward icon for good behaviour or certain performances can be rewarded. Icons are dragged into the planner with a finger. This way kids have fun in planning their own week calendar.
Use of Week Planner for Kids teaches children:
to distinguish names of the weekdays
to gain insight into their day and week planning
to plan their own day and week activities
to self-reward for good behaviour
to distinguish daily weather conditions
Planning a week together with your child before dinner cuddled up on the couch or right before bedtime. This app offers children years of fun with educational elements.
Week Planner for Kids: educational fun. Experience it yourself!
Ratings and Reviews
Great at first
Loved the flexible icons and great design, but only a limited number of icons fit in a day. Fine for younger kids, but not as good for older kiddos on the autism spectrum who have more tasks per day. Also, there's no way to select just "today" - which is where my son gets visually overwhelmed (he wants top days tasks to be like tomorrow's). Add those options and it'd be a 5 star app!
Not so great
First issue I faced is I cannot add more than 6 activities.
Second, custom badges can be only hand written and cannot use keyboard to type in text.
Third, once a badge is created, we cannot edit to update again, have to start from scratch, painful process.
I was hoping to use this to plan my kid’s day to day activities starting from his wake up to sleep and involving shower, breakfast, homework, school, play, sports activities etc..., but very disappointed with the purchase !
Good app for broad day planning.
