A new and interesting app has been introduced by Marshmallow games called Math Tales- The Jungle. The app takes the classic nursery rhyme and gives it a modern touch by adding engaging math activities with every verse. With an interactive story based in the Jungle, the app has been introduced for the iPhone and the iPad. It offers plenty of learning opportunities for young kids, which include numeral counting, interactive colors, spatial perception, logic operations and visual perception. The app is basically focused on helping kids in learning a variety of specific math abilities. A very unique feature of the app is that it enables parents to keep track of their child’s progress and see what they have learnt while playing tasks.
There is a narrative voice in Math Tales that adds a fun element to the game. This rhyme voice plays the role of a guide and kids can follow it to know how to help Jungle animals in bringing back the celebrated elephant. The colorful birthday party involves the use of logical mathematics operations. It is the job of the kids to organize the party, which includes tasks like hanging balloons, creating flower garlands, finding hidden objects, creating a cake, organizing games like animals by size and making sure everyone attends. Hence, mathematics becomes fun and adventurous for kids with this app.
Math Tales is aimed at children between the age group of 3 and 5, which includes pre-school kids and early learners. There are a total of nine chapters within the app that have nine different educational themes and nine different jungle animals. There are around 27 logic and math games that change every time the kids play. Funny animations and engaging graphics attract the kids to the games and help in their memory development. One of the best features of Math Tales is that it is free of advertisements.
Advertisements are unhealthy for children and Marshmallow games have kept it in mind. As the app is focused on enhancing the learning experience of kids. The Parents Area cannot be accessed by your little ones either as a multiplication sum has to be completed in order to gain access to it. As long as your child is young, they will be unable to solve the sum correctly. You will be able to determine your child’s progress by knowing the areas that have been completed by your child and the ones that are left. Furthermore, you can also find links to other apps that are within the range of Math Tales.
Not only are the illustrations within the app engaging and fun, but the sound is also upbeat and melodic, which provide kids with an irresistible experience. The narrative is well-voiced and well-paced, which creates an interactive storybook experience rather than coming off as purely educational. The app works with iOS 8.0 and later OS versions and it is available in three languages namely English, Spanish and Italian. It is priced at just $2.99 and is highly recommended. It can be download from iTunes here.
