Music and Media Counting Apps


Kids can practice math at all levels with terrific digital tools. Young kids can develop early skills such as number sense, counting, basic addition, and shapes, while older kids can work on algebra and geometry concepts. Find an app that provides fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, tracing, rote counting, guessing and open ended questioning.
  1. Moose Math- Moose Math engages kids in a mathematical adventure and teaches counting, addition, subtraction, sorting, geometry and more. While playing 5 multi-level activities in the Moose Juice Store, Puck’s Pet Shop and Lost & Found, kids can earn rewards to help build their own city and decorate buildings.
  2. Preschool Counting- Excellent aid to teach kids & develop counting skills needed for preschoolers. Lots of bright colorful pictures, introduce the kids to learn to count. They are arranged in counting sets of 1-10, 10-20, and 20-30. There are also practice sections to encourage kids to count in a classroom or a home environment.
  3. Endless Numbers- Kids will have a blast learning number recognition, sequences, quantity, numerical patterns, and simple addition with the adorable Endless monsters. Each number features interactive sequences and equation puzzles with numbers that come alive, and a short animation that provides context and meaning to each number.
