Here’s what I mean. We didn’t have the learning aids that children have today (online, apps, iPads, computers, etc.) but we didn’t have the same level of distractions that sometimes inhibit learning, either. If you have young children, here’s an app you’ll like as much as they learn.
Pick This, Learn That
Children aged two to five already know how to use an iPad, and fortunately there are hundreds, if not thousands, of apps they can use to learn numbers, the alphabet, shapes, colors, and more.
If your child is more advanced and you’re not afraid to let them loose on the Mac’s keyboard, get Pick and Learn. First, it doesn’t cost much. Second, it’s a good way for children to learn.
Learn what? Pick and Learn specializes in numbers and alphabet, but also combines both into logic and reasoning.
For example, the animated layout will display a series of numbers or letters but missing one in a series. The child will be prompted to match the missing component. Not only is this good for teaching a child numbers and the entire alphabet, it’s also good to help them learn structure and sequence.
Pick and Learn has four sections. Letter, Numbers, Shapes, and Random. Each one works in a similar manner so children can pick up on the sequential patterns quickly.
Pick and Learn features background music and voice instructions. Granted, the iTunes App Store for iOS has many more options, but Pick and Learn is for the parent with a Mac.
