Numberland HD - Learn Numbers with MontessoriFall 2011 Mobile Apps
Using the Montessori method of hands on exploration and re-enforcement, children practice writing and understanding numbers in this app hosted by two friendly cartoon guides. Tam & Tao offer mini-lessons on each of the numbers 1 through 9 and, finally, 0. Each number is clearly pronounced and written in a scene bubbling with countable sets of animals, shoes, clouds, and more. The app’s hosts ski across mountains, fly through space, and drive through a city as they introduce each number. Tam carries a notebook with countable blocks, while clicking Tao lets players trace each number in the color of their choice. We especially enjoyed the counting stick activity used to explain the concept of zero. Young testers enjoyed the memorable illustrations throughout.
