For too many children math is something scary or uninteresting. Math is an essential part of life, is absolutely necessary for future careers and job training, and besides this, math is fun and rich and rewarding. So how do we reverse the all too common distaste for math? We start young. And one of the most powerful tools for making math fun for children is math apps for kindergarteners.
Math apps for kindergarteners come in all shapes and sizes (get the pun there?), but what’s most important is finding games that kids actually want to play. The best math apps for kindergarten disguise repetition of cognitive basics in fun games and activities. Colorful graphics, active play (think touch and tap commands), and music all also help in contributing to math apps for toddlers that not only work in teaching math but teach kids that math can be a fun game.
Preschool EduMath 1 and Preschool EduMath 2 are two of the best math apps for kindergarteners on the market now. They’ve won the Parents’ Choice Award for best toddler games as well as numerous recognition on kindergarten teacher and parents blogs. The games are totally customizable, highly creative, effective, child safe, and teach kids everything from counting, numbers, shapes, sizes, to more concept learning skills like patterns, organization, telling time, and much more.
