TeachMe: Kindergarten is known as TeachMe: Reception in the UK.

TeachMe: Kindergarten is an educational iPhone/iPad/iPod touch app which teaches six different age appropriate subjects to Kindergarten aged children: sight words, addition, subtraction, spelling and now writing letters and numbers. Parents can select which subjects they want, set different difficulty levels, and even choose specific questions. Parents can review performance history for each subject to check how their child is doing.

TeachMe: Kindergarten keeps children engaged with a rather unique reward system where children earn a coin for every three correct answers. Coins can then be used to purchase stickers to place in fun sticker scenes or to purchase items for the new virtual aquarium. Sticker scenes can be exported as wallpaper or emailed to family and friends.

The simple and intuitive user interface is designed to be child friendly, which allows children to play without help from an adult. An animated teacher (Mimi Mouse) gives verbal instructions and feedback to the child which makes learning fun.

• Virtual Aquarium reward (4 types of fish and 40+ items)
• 6 different sticker reward scenes: farm, beach, underwater reef, pirate cove, city, playground
• Over 150 different stickers for adding to scenes
• Save learning information for up to 40 students
• Select which subjects are displayed for each student
• Turn on/off specific questions within a subject
• Change the number of correct questions to earn a reward
• Change the number of questions in a row to mark a question learned
• Tracks performance for each subject item (last five)
• Export sticker rewards scenes to Photos, for emailing or using as wallpaper

• Sight Words: Dolch (Pre-K), Dolch (K)
• Addition: up to a total of 10
• Subtraction: from 10 down
• Spelling: complete words by choosing the missing letter
• Letter Writing: how to write letters a-z, A-Z
• Number Writing: how to write numbers 0-9.

  • Love

    by Palidad's

    We love this game! We live in Oregon and this game is right on with what my daughter is learning in school! I have two "wants" with it though- 1. I wish their progress was tracked across devices. That they could pick up any of our phones or our family's iPad and it would be in the same place. 2. Fourth grade? Fifth grade? Middle school? Update- with writing added I'd like a d'neilian option.

  • Best educational app we own

    by Artchick99

    I had to beg my kids to stop using these apps today. They're the perfect combination of math and reading with "prizes" they can purchase in the store using coins they earn for correct answers. My first grader is doing the second grade level and my preschooler is doing kindergarten. I HIGHLY recommend them for 4-8 year olds!

  • Everything is great except...

    by Babybuntcake

    I wish the app would sync students and their progress with multiple devices. I have three different devices that I allow my students to use on this app. However, if they use a different device they have to start all over when building rewards and data.

  • Cute game.

    by Pixydustss

    My daughter loved this game as a preschooler and in kindergarten but is ready to move onto the 1st grade level. I just wish there was a way you could get a discounted rate on the next level rather than paying full price every year for the next grade.

  • Fantastic App

    by jgreview

    We've had this app for quite a while and both my children enjoy it. I like the topics they learn and how it is visually presented. Also, I like that the voice for the "mouse teacher" is pleasant and that she gives specific instructions on how to correct any mistakes. I had an older version and was thrilled when I updated the app. The newer version now includes letter and number writing. I couldn't believe that they could improve on the original, but I guess was wrong (it is much better!). Thanks so much for this app. This enhances our homeschooling lessons and makes it fun for the kids.

  • My 5 loves this app

    by Kheier

    A must have!!!! She will play while we are in the car or bored while I'm doing something else. We don't have T.V. right now so this app is wonderful for her.

  • great app

    by muddy33333

    my daughter loves this game and has been playing it since she was 4. Moved on to 1st grade app... keep em coming .

  • My daughter loves this app

    by Buzz Suuppi

    She loves that she wins coins to buy stickers and such gives her a great incentive to keep playing. She is a lefty so we love the left handed option as well. The one thing I would change would be the ability to lock her game. She has a 2 yr old sister who will go onto her game and spend all her hard earned coins :/

  • Crashes when make a 5

    by Jennmin

    It's great but now it's crashing when my son makes a number 5.

  • Just very great!

    by Cameros rock

    It is a great app. Helps little kids learn a lot of stuff. They always rush to play this great app

  • Great App!

    by Amy Glassner

    I have downloaded and tried MANY different apps for my kindergarteners and been disappointed with most of them. This app is the mine & the kids FAVORITE one! I like it because of all the learning aspects... They like it because they earn coins & get to buy fish, fish tank items & stickers! They don't realize they are learning. I highly suggest this app for any teacher, parent or even babysitter who wants to see your children learn in a fun way!

  • Love this app

    by lightningbug

    Absolutely lovely. Got this app a few years ago for my son, now his younger sister is using it. I really like the structure of this app- it's fun, it teaches them in a way that isn't stressful or boring, and they love it! Definitely worth the money. Really solid app.

  • Very happy

    by Fieta

    I've downloaded many educational games and I'm usually disappointed. But this game is great! My kids love it (I have 2nd grade too) and it actually challenges them to succeed. It doesn't give points unless they get it without help. It prompts really well so I don't have to sit with them the whole time. It also keeps track of their progress so I can check in at any time. Finally there are no ads and strange pop ups that deter from the learning activities. Yay! Good job 24x7 digital!

  • Great app

    by Aree

    Best kindergarten app I bought. It keeps my daughter engaged and shuffles the type of work so it's interesting and covers some material that is a bit more involved in a fun way. It has a reward system she enjoys.

  • My Child's FAVORITE!

    by TiaSmall7282

    My child has had this game for 2 years (she's 5 now) and she STILL loves it! It's taught her how to add, subtract and even recognize sight words! And she LOVES saving her coins (earned by completing math or reading problems) to buy fish and "stickers" in the game - Definitely worth it - best educational game out there!!

  • Love that they keep improving this app!

    by tdpearl

    II still get rushed by our friends' kids whenever I show up with my iPad so that they can play whichever TeachMe is appropriate for their aptitude. All of the kids have fun while learning and the sticker environment keeps them playing for long periods of time.

  • Great app!

    by I'm Pretty Satisfied

    My daughter really enjoyed this and it made learning fun for her. So much so that we have bought 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades, too.

  • Teach me

    by GigiGogi

    It would be nice to be able to reset levels and to turn off the sound so the game can be played in public without disturbing other people. That would give it a five star from me.

  • Wish I could give 6 stars...

    by Locanis

    My son LOVES this app and I LOVE how customizable it is. I would love a sync feature though, since he has it on his iPad and my iPhone when we're on the go. Only complaint I have. LOVE IT!

  • Wow! My boys love learning on this app!

    by JustDead B.

    I have downloaded at least twenty different apps trying to find one that sparks an intrest for my sons. I purchased the Teach Me Kindergarden, Teach Me First, Second & Third Grade. The questions are easy for them to understand and you can adjust the settings so they can write or type the answers. I wish there where Teach Me apps for the higher grades.

  • Good educational app!

    by wikiki rocks

    My son loves to collect coins and takes great pride in achieving the target we set for him

  • Sync?

    by House hunter13

    Seems like a great app so far. It would be great if you could sync the app with other devices so kids could continue where they left off on another device.

  • Awesome education

    by Rgclarke

    This is an awesome educational app with so much to offer! It quickly engages kids with its friendly design and fun reward system. It has fantastically detailed parental controls allowing you to tailor it to your child's learning needs. Well worth the purchase!

  • Great app but sound a problem

    by 2012Qwerty

    My kids love this app and its a great learning app especially for the low cost. The only problem is that even if the phone sound is switched off or the do not disturb is on, it still makes noise. It's a problem because if we are somewhere where I need the sound off, this app is too loud. I can turn it down manually, but my 3 year old turns it back up.

  • LOVE this app for my 4 yr old!

    by Ctown888

    Great educational app for my preschooler. It's easy to use and the rewards are so much fun for my daughter. Definitely recommend this app for anyone with young kids.

  • Excellent app!

    by andyslocum

    Simple and very effective app! Absolutely love all of the settings options.

  • Wonderful app

    by Ticklemesweet

    Perfect for parents to keep track of their child's learning skills!!!...

  • Love this App!

    by Jensboys+1

    I highly recommend this app! Works on sight words and math at the same time. Very age appropriate. My son loves that he can earn coins for stickers. Well worth the $1.99!

  • Love this app!

    by SoSueMe41

    This app is easy to use, and it has helped my 5 yr old to sound out words. It has math also, but I personally focus on the ABC's.

  • The best Pre-K / Kindergarten app!!!

    by SiobhanRukhadze

    I have been through about 100 "educational" kids apps, this is by far the best. My son used the toddler one and now at 6 years old he love the 2nd grade one. My 5 year old daughter who had before never expressed any interest in math, loves the kindergarten app. Great work!!! :-)

  • Great Learning App

    by Rachforchrist

    We are very pleased with both the kindergarten and first grade editions of this game!! Thank you!

  • Data doesn't save

    by Mande92

    Although there are parental controls within the app, nothing saves to a cloud or elsewhere on the device. When accidentally deleted from the device, all data and progress was lost. Loved the app, not happy that my son has to restart as he was one different levels.

  • Ok needs fixing

    by JesS14ovo

    I really like these apps for my son and for my students. However there are still wrong answers listed and I really hate that I cannot change from the coins to the sticker rewards like in the toddler version of the app. Please, please fix these aspects of the app to make it perfect!

  • Problems

    by Ashley B. Photography

    The app is great. However, I am a teacher and use it with my class and there are some problems. It has wrong answers and sometimes won't give the correct answer as a choice. Please fix!

  • Great app

    by MoniJon

    Highly recommend! I usually try and stick to free apps but this is with every penny. Perfect for our pre-k daughter (just turned 5).not too easy, not too hard. Great math and sight words. And she loves getting rewarded with "coins"!

  • Love it

    by Knoxgirl13

    Teaches my daughter sounds, letters, shapes, numbers, colors, etc. & she earns stickers. She loves it. Great learning/fun app

  • M.

    by HSW2B

    My kids love playing this app. They argue over who gets to "play with the teacher". My son is almost 5, and he learned how to do math in one weekend. The sticker rewards are so much more motivational than I thought they would be. Whenever my son gets a couple of new stickers, he rearranges them and makes up a story to go with his scene. We have tried lots of educational methods and none have come close to the progress that we have seen with this app. Amazing! Thank you for helping my kids want to learn.

  • Great app

    by Sue524

    This is so great in math you can add by adding the object or to subtract. Has good word age appropriate. The best part is kids earn coins and can shop for stickers for various lands, this teaches if you work hard you get a reward. My daughter keeps working because she like the coins to shop with

  • ?

    by BlartBomb

    Question here? While my kids love this app I am worried about charges associated with leveling up the account (as the other reviewer mentioned) can anyone clarify this for the rest of us??

  • Awesome App- look fwd to 3rd grade and Beyond

    by drjlogan7

    We live overseas and our kids are in local Chinese school. These apps are perfect for helping them keep up with English school stuff too. Thanks for being a blessing and looking forward to Teach Me 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade, etc. Maybe eventually you will Have Teach Me Medical School?? Jason Logan MD

  • My son's favorite game after Angry Birds.

    by Jeffiner42

    I keep recommending this app to friends with children. My son quickly loses interest when we study, but loves "his learning game". I especially love that wrong answers are explained and not given stars, forcing them to keep trying for their points and not just hitting random buttons. I like that you can adjust the number of correct answers needed to earn a coin, and the reward system of cashing in coins for stickers or items for your virtual fish is also a teaching tool. The app is easy to use and lots of fun!

  • Love!

    by TeacherK123

    My students LOVE this app. They get to play it after earning so many stickers or smilies in class. I have a student with multiple behavior problems and since I have purchased this, he has gone 3 weeks without an incident so he can play it twice a day. Great learning tool and perfect. It has more math work than anything else but that is OK.

  • Kindergarten must have

    by Cschmaed

    My son was just pre-K when I found this game and it has helped him so much. He still enjoys playing it as it gets harder as he learns more. It keeps him on his toes! I can even see his progress.

  • Love it

    by EMandmsmom

    I have the whole series. Love these apps!!

  • Love it but....

    by FHgal1

    Would like to see the ability to have it focus on one section. I would like to see parental control to choose only spelling or sight words or math...well you get where I am coming from.

  • Terrific app

    by simplylkb

    Great app! My 6 1/2 year old is loving it and working his way through it quickly. It's a great review of kindergarten, and he's very motivated to get more fish for his aquarium. The only improvement I'd love to see is the ability to sync across devices, so he'd stay at the same level regardless of which device he's playing on. Great job!! PLEASE PLEASE ADD SYNCING ACROSS DEVICES!

  • Five star app!

    by Bmorri3

    My 5 year old choses to play this educational app over watching television. 'Nuff said.

  • Fantastic, but small bug

    by Kjerstena

    An absolutely wonderful app, I recommend it to all my mom friends. My busy son loves playing and will sit still and learn for long stretches of time. He is very motivated by earning coins and leveling-up. I would give it 5 stars, except we have a problem... He has worked so hard to level up, but now whenever I click on his profile, the app closes. It makes me so sad to think we have lost all of his progress!!

  • Well worth it!

    by Ben's Dada

    My three year old loves this!

  • Solid program

    by The Inquisitioner

    This is a fun program as is the pre-k. It is quick and focused with lots of prompts and positive feedback. It would be nice if it had a timing feature for classroom use so the students would time out and pass it on.

  • Great educational app!

    by Rocking Rozzy

    My son loves this app and it one that he learns from while playing.

  • The best of all learning apps for kindergarten

    by I luv the game! But...

    This app kept my boy (ADHD diagnosed) actively involved and learning to the point that in first grade he is noticeably more advanced than his classmates. It is worth much more than I paid!
