Most kids today love playing on tablets, and a lot of times, you even see iPads in the classroom or at their preschool with educational apps on them. Tablets can be used as a great learning tool as well as giving kids entertainment.
I’d love to introduce you to a new iPad app/toy called Tiggly Counts. Tiggly Counts is a math system for children 3 and up. Tiggly Counts is inspired by the classic cuisenaire rods that are used in Montessori education. You get a set of five colorful counting toys which interact with parent and educator approved Tiggly iPad learning apps. Tiggly Counts gives both physical and digital play which helps children develop their counting skills, number sense and understanding both addition and subtraction math problems.
Tiggly Counts costs just $29.95 and includes 3 FREE learning apps as well as a travel carrying pouch. I also have a special promo code I’m allowed to share with you that will give you 30% off of Tiggly Counts when you pre-order. Just use promo code TIGGLYCOUNTS at checkout (expires 11/21/14). Tiggly Counts is available for pre-order October 7th and is available for purchase in November.
Tiggly Counts has already won the 2014 Tillywig Brain Child Award as one of the most “exciting products that energize the mind while seamlessly blending fun and learning.”
Even though Tiggly Counts doesn’t launch until October 21, they’ve already won the 2014 Tillywig Brain Child Award as one of the most “exciting products that energize the mind while seamlessly blending fun and learning.”
Some of the fun you can have with the Tiggly Counts App:
Tiggly Addventure: Tiggly sets off an adventure to deliver the most delicious apple in Tiggly Town to his beloved grandmother! Along the way, Tiggly will need you to use your counting toys to build bridges, ladders, and much more to help him overcome challenges on the land, sea, and even outer space! Tiggly Adventure introduces you to number line concepts while helping you improve your number sense and counting skills. Count up, count down, count all, and count on!
Tiggly Cardtoons: A world of playful and surprising learning comes alive at the speed of imagination as you use your counting toys. Two pieces of cardboard become a juggling owl, or a hungry shark with a taste for apples, or a rumbling truck carrying… snakes?! Tiggly Cardtoons will help you learn basic math ideas such as one-to-one matching, counting, and equal sets.
Tiggly Chef: Emergency in the kitchen! Tiggly Town’s greatest, most mustachioed Chef needs help, and only you and your counting toys can prepare his preposterously silly recipes. Think you can beat the Chef at his own game? Devise your own kooky culinary concoctions in one of Chef’s three kitchens! Along the way, Chef will help you learn numbers and early addition concepts; he will introduce you to math symbols, and encourage you to follow instructions and to think flexibly.
