Make getting your kid back into the grind more fun than ever

September can be crazy hectic — sale frenzies, nervous kids, and (brace yourself) impending frost. Ugh. We said it.

So we rounded up some apps to make the transition from summer days to the school grind a little easier for everyone involved. You might not be able to avoid hitting an insane mall for notebooks and backpacks (get a load of these 8 awesome backpack styles before you go), but you are only a simple download away from a world of next-level educational apps.

Flashcards ++

The best way to memorize timetables and learn new words? Flashcards! This app lets you use images from your iPhone camera to create your own personalized flashcards so you can study with your kid anywhere you go. You can store up to 20,000. They’ll be a quizmaster in no time flat.

For iPhone and iPad. $3.99

Team Snap

If your kid is most excited to hit the field or the court than anything else this year, this app will help keep a pumped up sports schedule on lock down. You can keep practice schedules organized, stash contact info in a complete roster of players, upload photos and send team messages for solidarity.

For iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Free. 

School A To Z

This app helps you help your kid with their homework. Tutorials and help sheets span a ton of different subjects – you can hunt down 350 word definitions, view times tables in graphic illustration form, and check out some “assignment starters” to prompt project ideas.

For iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Free.

iStoryTime Kids Book: My First Day of School

Young ones quaking in their boots about the first day? No worries – so is Charlie. This interactive (and charming) storybook character will offer some consolation as he nervously prepares for his first day of school, and eventually falls in love with his new setting. Different narration options include automatic or manual page turns and onscreen text for new readers.

For iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. $.99

iStudiez Pro

This is a super comprehensive organizational tool for studious young scholars who want to be organized. Whip that homework schedule into shape with a built in planner, homework follow up tracker, and stay-alert push notifications.

For iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. $.99 

Number Line

Here’s one for the math haters: fractions, decimals, and percentages become a little less impossible as kids brush up with this helpful (and dare we say slightly addicting?) game. For skill levels between grades 2 – 8.

For iPhone and iPad. Free.
