Top Counting App for Toddlers and Preschoolers to learn how to count the fun way!
Learning how to count can be so much fun for our toddlers and preschoolers. The iPad has changed the way kids can learn by offering entertaining and interactive activities. Sometime I just wish I be a kid again!
There are many counting apps for the iPad, each one with its unique benefits. We have just tried Monte-Lingual 1 to 10 math app and really liked its educational value. This counting math app is based on the Montessori Method. Monte Lingual teaches the concept of counting from 1 to 10 via the bead stair system, a well known math material in the Montessori system.
“The bead stair is made up of a series of colour beads. Each series is connected to represent a single numerical unit. Each quantity is represented by a different colour. Each bead bar is counted off individually, with emphasis placed on each individual bead. When the number of beads on each bar is determined, it is matched with the corresponding numeral representation of that number.”

The multi-touch feature allows toddlers to interact with the marble thus increase the learning process. It is easy to use. Kid can learn how to count forward but also backward, simply by moving back the marble. To make it more fun, kids change the colours of the marble or interact with the marbles by flicking it to the other side and watch it bounce across the canvas with a classical music on the background (or add your own from your library). Great fun!
In addition to learning how to count from 1 to 10 in English, your toddlers can also learn them the numbers in French, Spanish or Chinese. Simply tap the “I” on the left corner and off they are counting in another language. You will be surprised how fast they can learn. My youngest simply loves counting in Chinese, after listening and repeating, he now knows how to count from 1 to 10 in Chinese!
The quiz mode asks kids to count the number of marble on the upper tray. Kids can touch each marble one by one or if they are more advance, they can simply tap on the corresponding number. The correct answer appears on the bottom corner of the screen and is sounded out with a voice over in the language of your choice.
