Lipa Frog: A Counting Tale
All the frogs are having fun counting flies in the bog. Except for Fred, who sits up in his hot air balloon and watches, because he never learned to count! One day a gust of wind blows Fred’s balloon into a tree, and the adventure begins; as he meets new quirky characters who need his help counting, Fred realizes he had the ability to be a counting frog after all.
Freefall Money tackles the concept of counting money. This app does not include instruction on how to count coins, so your child should have a basic understanding of this concept before they use this app. Activities include sorting coins, matching groups of coins to a total amount, and adding coin values to find the total amount. Instructors can set the number of coins that are presented to students in each activity, ranging from 3 coins to 10. The coins can be moved around in order from least to greatest to assist students in counting the total value of the coins.
Tiggly is a New York-based company that develops interactive toys and apps for the digital generation. Toddlers and preschoolers love the iPad as much as Mom and Dad, but 70 years of academic research has demonstrated that manipulating physical objects is essential to early childhood development. Tiggly enables parents to bring this critical component of early learning to the “digital sandbox” today’s kids inhabit.
Tiggly sets off on an adventure to give his grandmother the most delicious apple in Tiggly Town and the most hilarious gift to his drummer best friend! Along the way, he will need you to build bridges, ladders, and much more to help him overcome challenges on the land, sea, and even outer space! Tiggly Addventure introduces children to number-line concepts while helping improve their number sense and counting skills.
Count, drag, match, and enjoy as the seemingly simple buttons you create come alive in a wildly imaginative story. Shuffle basic pieces of digital cardboard and watch as they become one bluefish with a fancy bowtie, two peanuts for a hungry elephant, three candles for a cow’s birthday cake, four gumballs for a bubble-blowing frog, and five silly bananas on a camel’s back! These are just some of the stories you will help bring to life as you set the stage for a journey through counting and the depths of your imagination!
Tiggly Cardtoons will help you learn basic math ideas such as one-to-one matching, counting, and equal sets while stretching your imagination and sense of wonderment.
