Yesterday ABC Reading Eggs released another wonderful app for your iPad and iPhone. Aimed at children aged 6 to 8, Eggy Numbers to 100 teaches number skills - counting, addition, estimation, and multiples – in a fun way, through six interactive games, with fun sounds and animations.
The games use tap and ‘touch and drag’ functions – drag numbers to the right spot to arrange them in order; burst balloons to identify the correct addition answers; match number dot to dots then ‘paint’ the resulting picture; identify number multiples by zapping space bugs, and more. Each game progresses through 2-3 levels of difficulty, with each level using higher numbers, earning cute ‘Mashies’ rewards along the way.
As well as having the instructions for each game displayed on the screen before the game starts, those instructions are also spoken to your child – so they can easily understand what to do. You can also choose the voice you prefer – Australian, US or British.
Eggy Numbers to 100 is available from the App Store for $2.99
If you have a younger child, ABC Reading Eggs also has Eggy Numbers 1-10 for $1.99.
