Toddlers and pre-schoolers are always eager to learn new words. Fun educational apps offer a great new way of learning via interactive activities. Many toddlers’ apps allow kids to learn the fun way via bright and colourful designs. Today app is Tilly’s Petting Farm, a new vocabulary app that uses the farm as a mean to teach children words and phrases associated with the life around the farm.
Tilly's Petting Farm: learn vocabulary with association
The idea with Tilly’s Petting Farm is to let children learn by association. Children learn new words and these words are placed in a setting that helps kids remember and understand words. Kids are able to choose from 4 different farm scenes. With each scene toddlers will explore different settings around the farm.
For each scene there are 2 parts:
1st part: by tapping on each object or animal, toddlers and pre-schoolers hear all sorts of fun phrases and sounds and discover cute animation. For each object kids learn its name and what does it do or how it interacts with the environment. For example, tap on the milk - the glass will empty and kids will hear various words and sentence related to milk: “milk” “a cow gives milk” “you can buy milk in a supermarket” “from cheese we make milk and butter”.
2nd Part: A series of questions that can be answered by touching the appropriate picture. For example for the nest, kids will be asked “where is the nest?” and “In what do bird lay their eggs?” Each time your kids will be encouraged to go further. With every right answer, they get a “Well done” and if kids answer incorrectly a hint is shown after 3 times. Kids never get stuck and if they don’t find the answer a new questions will be asked.
What did Fun Educational Apps like?
Fun Educational Apps really like the fact that Tilly’s Petting Farm offers an effective approach to learning words and vocabulary. It encourages kids to learn about what surrounds them and what are things made of. For example, with many apps kids are shown a picture of butter, but do not always learn anything else beside the word. What we like here is that kids also learn that butter is made from milk and milk comes from the cow. It is a great learning app easy to use with bright and colourful drawings. It encourages children to keep on learning and exploring. Everything is clickable.and animated and offer 3 or 4 different sentences or words to say it. It is new and innovative and we are sure you and your little ones will have fun learning all about the farm.
Tilly’s Petting Farm has been created developed by parents and teachers and tested by toddlers.
