[prMac.com] Henderson, NV - Announcing that KayKhosoft LLC, the developers of iFlashcards 1-to-30 today launched a brand new program for little ones. The app teaches children ages 2 to 5 their numbers in English and Spanish through the use of colorful flash cards presented with visual and audio teaching. iFlashcards helps youngsters to learn and memorize the first thirty numbers in a fun way and offers scored quizzes to test and reinforce the learning as they go.
With iFlashcards 1-to-30, parents work with their child to introduce them to the wonderful world of numbers. The app can be used in English or Spanish, so bilingual learning is easy if desired.
Each flashcard has colorful graphics and images which engage small children and give them a visual reference or clue to help them figure out the number on the card. The app also says the name of each number. This combination of audio and visual presentation makes it easier for a young child to learn.
The 0 - 10 category is a straight forward flashcard exercise which displays each card sequentially. Kids can learn to count up to ten and from ten back down to zero. A parent merely has to give the screen a swipe to initiate the direction of the cards.
When a child is ready, they can move on to the 11 - 20 and 21 - 30 categories, which are more interactive. These numbers are presented as buttons on a panel and parents can select to have the numbers shown to their child either sequentially or randomly. Any selected number shows a matching number of apples and the name of the number is sounded out.
iFlashcards has a Pick-a-Number exercise, which is a scored quiz of ten multiple choice cards. The youngster cannot memorize the order of cards as they randomly generated. All answers have to come from what the child has learned. This is an excellent way to determine progress and to detect any problem numbers that need more work.
