Educational Apps for Kindle (Free and Low-cost)

Educational apps for Kindle Fire

There are LOTS of educational apps for i-products, but good ones are a little harder to find for the Kindle. These are some of the paid and free educational apps for the Kindle Fire that I’ve found. I’ve tried to focus here on school-age apps rather than preschool ones. We’ve tried many, but not all of these. They do, however, all have good ratings on Amazon. I’d love to hear about some of your favorites!

Free Apps!



Interactive Time Telling App


My Homework Student Planner 

Spanish in a Month (We LOVE this! We purchased the paid app listed below after trying out the 2 free levels in this free version.)

Spelling Bee

Interactive Periodic Table of the Elements

Math Slicer (Fruit Ninja for math!)



Speed Anatomy


Jog Nog: Quizzes for Common Core Test Prep; Grades 2-8

Art Museum Match ‘Em Up—Learn about famous artists and their paintings.

 US Citizenship Test Prep (Should be useful for anyone to brush up on US history and government!)

 The Oregon Trail: American Settlers







Paid Apps

These e-books ($0.99 and $2.99 include reviews of hundreds of Kindle Fire apps for kids.


Learning Games Series: These are very highly rated. $1.99 each.
