[prMac.com] Singapore - Hippopopopo, the developers of Road Vehicles has launched a fun and educational product for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. Occupation Word Match is a fun game for youngsters to learn the names, spelling and pronunciation of different occupations. Children name the occupation as they use their fingers to drag the word icons into the box. Along the way, children hear the sound of the vehicle each occupation uses to learn simple association. They also will hear the names of the occupations being read out. The app offers five vehicles and users can unlock 10 more through the in-app purchase option.
Occupation Word Match is a new game for young children. Parents love it because it's educational but kids just love the fun this app provides. When you put those two elements together, you've got a great teaching tool. The application uses audio, visual and kinesthetic tools for sensory learning. Youngsters hear the sound that each occupation's vehicle makes after they physically move and match the correct word icon to the occupation.
Audio and kinesthetic components of the game will reinforce the learning and remembering of information. Naturally, the visual sense is called into play while the child is reading and matching the correct word with the occupation. In Occupation Word Match, children will get acquainted with each character such as the milkman, policeman, fireman, doctor and sailor. The emphasis is on fun and the graphics are adorable throughout this interactive game.
