With this app your child gets to listen to tales from Africa, folk tales that have been told for generations or learn a little bit about important historical figures.

i Learn With Poko: Fun counting and additions! (iPhone)

i Learn With Poko: Fun counting and additions! HD (iPad)

Subject: Math

Category: Number Sense

Concept: Addition and Subtraction

Age: 4,5,6

Price: 1.99, 2.99

Last month the developers updated this app and it is working superbly now! Make sure to update or download this app for your child who is already counting objects up to 20 and is ready to start learning about addition. 

i Learn With Poko: Additions! has 3 addition games that work on combining small groups of objects to reinforce the properties of addition. Game environments include bowling, sandbox fun, and filling up a toy box. Three levels work on progressively larger quantities of objects and an in-app system increases or decreases the difficulty to limit frustration but encourage learning. We really like how each of the game environments are easily replicated off the app. You just might find your child practicing addition while cleaning up their bedroom or playing out in the yard.
