Team Umizoomi Math App
Age Recommendation 4+ years.
The first thing that grabbed me were the graphics. Stunning, vibrant and exactly as my children would see on TV. I love that there are four name slots. Most of us tend to have more than one child that wants to play and assigned slots allows the game to keep a record of your child’s progress.
It covers addition and subtraction, number recognition, ordering and one to one correspondence all appropriately aimed at a 4+ age group. I also like the fact that the game introduces numbers greater than 10 even though it just touches on these.
The game gives a variety of prompts to children to assist them with answers if experiencing difficulty and loads of praise and encouragement. There is even a trophy room the game creates to acknowledge the child’s progress.
At times the game can feel a little repetitious to an adult, but repetition especially when it comes to numbers is a very powerful teacher. If anything I would like to see the game get more challenging a little faster.
This is a good quality game that is sure to please the preschool age group be they know anything about the TV show or not. Simply stunning graphics & good variety.
