● Our numbers app for kids will help your child develop a ‘number sense’ – the ability to understand numbers and how they relate to quantities they represent (more than, less than, and equal to)
● They will also help you teach basic linear counting – from 1 to 10 and backward – in 16 different languages (great for starting your child on the road to bilingualism early on).
● Our counting games for toddlers are intuitive and easy to understand – a child can play alone or with others (parents, siblings, grandparents)
● Educators use our counting games for kids to assist with cognitive development in children with learning disabilities
● Zoolingo’s preschool counting games provide hours and hours of educational fun and help prepare your child for their preschool activities
Have fun learning numbers from 1 – 10 with your toddler in our first game! How many fruits are on the screen? Help your child count them all and select the correct answer. They will be presented with the images of different fruits and have to count them out. In addition to counting, your toddler will get a chance to learn the correct pronunciation of the numbers (16 languages available) and, with a bit of your help, they will also broaden their knowledge of certain fruits.
Once you’ve mastered the order and the pronunciation of all the numbers, it’s time to learn how to recognize their symbols. Our second preschool counting game gives your child the opportunity to trace different numbers before they can confidently grasp a pencil. They will not only learn the shapes of the numbers but will also practice their dexterity and fine motor skills.
How many cows are on the screen? Help your child count them all by clicking on each animal. In addition to learning counting and addition, they will also get an opportunity to reinforce their knowledge of common farmyard animals. This is a great numbers game for a toddler for when you want to start teaching them the concept of one-to-one correspondence (ability to understand that each image represents ‘one more’) early on.
To reinforce your child’s understanding of how numbers follow one another in a logical sequence, use our fourth counting game – number sequences. With this game, they will get to grips with correct sequencing and learn numbers from 1 – 10 in a heartbeat!
Pop the Numbers
To make the learning process even more fun for young kids, we’ve added a counting game for toddlers that lets them pop the numbers in balloons floating on the screen. The balloons all have the same number in them, which will help your child quickly memorize them.
Order the Numbers
One of the more popular games in our counting app for toddlers is ‘Order the Numbers’. They get to (correctly) order numbers from 1 – 10 – this is the fastest way to teach your child counting, and they get to have fun doing it in 16 different languages!
Catch the Numbers
A ton of fun awaits your child in our next preschool counting game. They get to catch the falling numbers in a chest – encourage them to catch all the same numerals, practicing each one as they go along.
A lot of parents are at their wit’s end when it comes to how to teach kids counting. Numbers are beautiful but, unfortunately, only some of us are encouraged to work with them (and like them) from an early age. Because of the aversion parents have toward math, kids are mostly encouraged to occupy their time with the alphabet, shapes, and nursery rhymes (we have plenty of those here at Zoolingo, too). What this means is that a lot of kids start preschool and still struggle with counting from 1 to 10. This seriously impacts their ability to excel at math at a later age.
If you’re not sure how to practice numbers with your toddler, we want you to give our counting app for kids a try! It allows you to augment other types of counting games for children, and it’s easy and fun to use.
There are many benefits to it:
● An early start on numeral identification – counting apps for toddlers are a great way to introduce children to the world of numbers. The earlier they start identifying number shapes with actual numbers, the better their math skills are in the future.
● Learning the sounds of numbers and their pronunciation – it’s important to get the number sounds just right at an early age – it’s an easy way to enrich the vocabulary of your child.
● Developing awareness of one-to-one correspondence and counting on – the ultimate goal of counting apps for toddlers is to teach them the difference between one and many, more or less, and logical number sequences.
● Recognition of patterns and their recreation – number games for toddlers allow you to teach your child patterns, and helps them further develop their logic and critical thinking skills.
