View on the App Store: Jungle Coins - learn coin math (for iPad) - Andrew Short
Features of Jungle Coins:
This App is great to learn to recognise coins within your currency and those of other countries. With many different settings and levels available this App is very comprehensive and even toddlers can play it!
There are 4 main categories.
Within the "settings" you can increase the levels to include all of the coins one by one, thus increasing knowledge and self confidence over time. To add a little bit of extra fun your child can choose from 6 different animals to place at the top of their puzzles, a nice touch for little one's!
This feature is easily accessed and your child independently chooses, which is lovely to observe! Each time your child gets a question right the animal makes a happy sound with a matching smile...five in a row gets a special well done from all the Jungle animals! Your child will look forward to this special recognition and it is a good way to set your objective. (i.e Once you have scored 3 sets of 5 you can move on to the next level.)
One of a excellent Educational Trio...well done Andrew!
10 out of 10!
If you are sharing an iPad between children you can add other users by name as this awesome App follows the progress of your child's learning. It monitors how many correct and incorrect and totals it as a percentage. All scores can be reset.
Within 'settings' you can choose to turn the background jungle sounds, animal sounds, coins sounds and the voice on or off. With the voice on (a lovely child's voice) your child gets to HEAR the coin value as they tap, this helps them to know if they are right or not and also makes the App able to be used without the need to read. The voice is that of a child which is non-threatening.
