Laptops, tablets, smartphones – we are in the age of technology. It’s amazing how much educators and parents are using technology to help teach children. They use it to teach reading, writing, math, and more! I recently discovered an app called the Counting Parrots Game. This is a great app that provides an entertaining rudimentary mathematics learning experience for children ages 3-7. On top of being educational, this game is safe for kids and has parental control.

In the game, children have a goal – they must teach the parrots to fly. They share in the success with animated celebrations that let the child know he has “won” the game. Each time they play, they get a different combination of experiences, and the games increase in difficulty as they progress through the series.

Benefits

  • Children learn to count
  • Associate numbers with quantities
  • Practice patterns and grouping
  • Understand simple equations
  • Strengthen fine motor skills and memory

Counting Parrots Game is FREE! In fact, the free version includes 3 games and the expanded version is only $5.99, a minor investment in a child’s academic future. Counting Parrots Game is available through the Google, Apple and Amazon apps stores. A discount for teachers is available.

About the Counting Parrots Game

Counting Parrots Game, by Yingele, provides a fun, entertaining rudimentary mathematics learning experience for children ages 3-7. Children learn to count, associate numbers with quantities, practice patterns and grouping, understand simple equations, and strengthen fine motor skills and memory.

The system is noncompetitive. Children are graphically told when they are wrong with accompanying sound effects, and the correct answers are demonstrated. The system does not keep score.

Design/User Experience

  • The professionally designed game uses sophisticated animation and graphics to educate and entertain children.
  • Design of the game appeals to children as play for play’s sake, rather than an “educational exercise.”
  • Intuitive verbal and graphic interface allows non-literate children to easily figure out how to operate the game without parental intervention.
  • All instructions are given verbally; the only reading required is number recognition, and repetitive use of the game, encouraged by fun and an enhanced sense of mastery via efficacy motivation, results in improved recognition as well.
  • Bright background colors and high-contrast screens make it engaging, simple to use and see.
  • Fully interactive audio-visual experience
  • Non-competitive system encourages intrinsic satisfaction in learning
  • Engaging graphics and games keep children entertained
