[prMac.com] Amsterdam, Netherlands - The first iPad week planner for toddlers and pre-schoolers: Week Planner for Kids. Children often ask questions like: "Do I have school today?" and "Is my swimming lesson this afternoon?" or "How many nights before we go to grandma and grandpa?" This iPad app is the answer to all these questions and much more. A fun and educational week planner for toddlers and pre-schoolers!
This is what Week Planner for Kids does:
Week Planner for Kids helps children from the age of 3 to learn the structure of the day and week though the use of recognizable icons. By using this iPad app, they quickly learn to comprehend what week routines there are and what special activities are planned. Your child learns to plan and make choices in a playfully way.
How does Week Planner for Kids work?
The days of the week have distinct colours and are pronounced when clicked upon. The app works with a set of universal icons that represent a wide range of activities. Each icon has its own associated sound. Your child can also make its own icons by drawing, writing a text or uploading a picture. Through a range of weather icons, weather situations can be identified. Additionally, a reward icon for good behaviour or certain performances can be rewarded. Icons are dragged into the planner with a finger. This way kids have fun in planning their own week calendar.
Use of Week Planner for Kids teaches children:
* To distinguish names of the weekdays
* To gain insight into their day and week planning
* To plan their own day and week activities
* To self-reward for good behaviour
* To distinguish daily weather conditions
This is what parents and a teacher say about Week Planner for Kids:
Thomas Poel: "Great to see how quickly my son Jonathan (5 years old) has incorporated this app in his daily life and how much fun he has using it. He now knows that every blue day (Friday afternoon) he goes to football practice."
Mette Hessels: "My daughter Isa (4 years old) learned to distinguish the days of the week using the app in no time. And in a fun way! She is very proud of it herself."
Kim Meijer (pre-school teacher): "At school we start to teach children about day and week planning from an early age. Each morning we start with the day of the week, what is on schedule for the day and what the weather condition is like. This has become the favourite morning ritual in my class. The Week Planner for Kids app is a helpful, perfect and fun tool to practice this at home."
The people behind Week Planner for Kids:
Two fathers in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) are the brains behind this app. Like all kids, their children struggle to distinguish between the weekdays and weekly reoccurring activities and they have done something about it. For them, filling out the Week Planner for Kids calendar has now become their favourite father-child time of the day. Together before dinner, cuddled up on the couch or right before bedtime.
