Preschool Math Apps

There are many math apps that work on fact skill and drill as well as for computation, calculations, and equivalency.  Most of the students we currently are using the iPad with need to develop basic numeracy skills and number recognition. I am sure there are many other apps out there but here are a few tried and true preschool math apps to consider:

Park Math ($1.99) is made by Duck Duck Moose geared for 2-6 year olds and works on counting, size, patterns, sorting and beginning addition and math at two different levels. It is visually inviting and has clever math activities that are kids friendly. Verbal instructions are provided for the activity that were voice by kids. I like the small to large sorting, the feed the hippo counting and the subtraction activity which takes apples off the tree to demonstrate subtraction.

Available for iPod and iPad this a great preschool math app.

Pre-K Math HD – $1.99 – Provides interactive early math skills as shape recognition, counting, more and less and number recognition. Great interface and choices for learning math for young learners on an iPod or iPad.

GrasshopperApps.com has several wonderful preschool math apps which work on counting, number recognition on the iPad and iPod:

  • Photo Touch Numbers– Free – Focuses on recognizing numbers and counting objects and associating them with a number.

  • Montessori Counting Board – $.99 – Provides practice with counting and associating the number with objects  counted. As one of the Grasshopper apps, it provides customization within the app.

Numerate – $.99 – Focuses on recognizing numbers (1-20) and explores simple addition and subtraction with interactive calculations. Each number and calculation includes a sound and visual to teach quantity to preschool and kindergartener. For iPad and iPod.

Of course there are more. If you have one that works well with preschool or kindergarten level students please share!
