BakingFun for Kids, by Kujifun Educational was developed for IOS devices, including iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The opening screen shows the four different parts of the story. The first time you share it with your child, it’s best to follow the steps in order, but after that, children may want to replay their favorite parts again and again.
The first scene is growing the wheat. Your child is the farmer, spreading the seeds in the field and watching them grow as the rain falls. In the second scene, your child drives the noisy combine as it harvests the wheat and fills up the truck. After that, the truck drives the wheat to the mill where your child becomes a miller, grinding the wheat into flour by spinning the windmill faster and faster. Next, the flour is delivered to the bakery, where it is mixed with the other ingredients. Finally, the loaves are popped into the oven, and when the timer rings, the bread is ready.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
Children learn best when they are actively engaged in the activity. In BakingFun for Kids, children take on each of the roles- the farmer, the combine driver, the miller, and the baker. One thing you will notice is that the story is told without so much as a single word being spoken. This technique is only successful if the story is a strong one, as is the case with BakingFun for Kids. Children are able to talk about the story at their level (whether that be 2-3 word phrases or an extended narrative). If I were to add one thing, it would be to show a person savoring a slice of bread after it comes out of the oven. Knowing how it got there makes the bread taste even better.
