FREE App from @Kids__Academy 123 Tracing Educational App

0

I received the opportunity to review the FREE App from Kids's Academy - 123 Tracing.

Kid's Academy, one of the most successful developers of apps for kids has released what might be their biggest app yet. 123 Tracing is an excellent educational app designed for younger students. This cute game helps kids trace numbers and get in the habit of writing and forming these letters that they will use the rest of their lives.

Kid's Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.




The app is really easy to navigate and my son loved collecting the bugs.  The kids have to collect the bugs by tracing the number using their finger.  As a parent I liked it had them trace the number two to three times so that they can practice before they move on to the next number.  I also didn't have to sit there with him to tell him what to do.  With verbal communication from the app he was able to work on his own.  I wish it had more numbers for him to trace other than the three on the app.


The free version of app is live and available to download via Amazon at:
