Encourage the early development of reading, counting and listening skills.
San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Children can master important preschool skills with ABCs with Dally Dino, Numbers with Dally Dino and Animals with Dally Dino, three new apps by Selectsoft now available for Windows 8. Featuring 6 fun-filled educational mini-games plus illustrated talking flashcards, these apps make learning on Windows 8 devices entertaining for all ages.
Educational apps can help children start building academic fundamentals at an early age, leading to learning success later in life. ABCs with Dally Dino, Numbers with Dally Dino and Animals with Dally Dino introduce pre-literacy and early math skills using a variety of fun exercises and puzzles, including I spy, sorting, memory matching, sequencing and more. With a colorful, easy-to-use interface and engaging activities, preschoolers and toddlers can practice reading, memorizing, math and critical thinking, and have fun at the same time.
The apps feature 7 learning activities, beginning with a set of talking flash cards, and continuing with a set of 6 mini-games to reinforce basic concepts. Each of the 7 activities focuses on something different: “Learn” teaches using illustrated flashcards; “Count” fosters symbol recognition; “I Spy” is a fun search game; “Match” features combinations of objects; “Sort” introduces critical thinking skills; “Pairs” is a memory game; and “Order” focuses on sequential order and patterns. Using simple concepts, these games can encourage the early development of reading, counting and listening skills for young children. For instance, “Order” develops thinking, concentration and sequencing skills as kids drag the missing items to the correct spots. On the other hand, “Count” develops basic math skills, as well as the ability to group by association and recognize symbols.
ABCs with Dally Dino, Numbers with Dally Dino and Animals with Dally Dino are part of a series of learning apps featuring a funny dinosaur friend which also includes the upcoming Shapes with Dally Dino and Colors with Dally Dino. Selectsoft’s Dally Dino apps have been created especially for young kids to explore on their own, designed with simple drag-and-drop actions, swipes and taps that are easy for even the youngest learners to pick up. A large button menu lets users choose which game to play first, while Dally Dinosaur explains and introduces each activity in a friendly way. The eye-catching art, silly animation and bright cartoon characters create an inviting, warm and child-friendly interface. As kids complete exercises and progress through the app, they can also earn colorful virtual stickers to play with and enjoy. It’s a great way to stimulate the creativity and self-confidence of young children while keeping them entertained.
With the successful launch of ABCs with Dally Dino, Numbers with Dally Dino and Animals with Dally Dino for Windows 8, Selectsoft is working to quickly release their entire Dally Dino learning series for the platform, including Shapes with Dally Dino and Colors with Dally Dino.
