App of the Week: KidCalc

I just learned about a great math app for toddlers called KidCalc. It has several different number games for counting, recognizing and writing numbers and counting, but the best part is the addition and subtraction. The app talks and visually shows groups of objects merging together. Then asks your child to select how many objects there are from 4 multiple choice selections. It grabbed Monkey's attention right away and within 15 minutes he started knowing a few of the addition challenges from repetition. This is exactly what I was looking for to go to the next level of learning numbers and starting to understand the basics of addition and subtraction. The app provides several age settings: 2-4, 4-6, 6-8, 8-10 and little genus so that you can manage the complexity of the problems displayed. It also allows granular control of items such as integer to count by (1,2,3 etc), lowest number, highest number, ascending, descending and a myriad of others. Check out KidCalc when you get a chance.
