Kids learn about coins and shapes while listening to fresh hip hop beats and the Parents' Choice Award winning music of Alphabet Rockers!
Known for their hip hop beats and a fresh take on kids music, Alphabet Rockers makes learning fun with upbeat, urban pop songs using pre-K and K curriculum. The app allows young learners to examine, identify and explore familiar U.S. coins and shapes by providing scaffolded games and activities. Level 1 introduces the new vocabulary with visual context to help support coin and shape recognition. Young learners are then allowed to have fun while applying their newly acquired knowledge through games in level 2. In levels 3 and 4, children are allowed to use their coin and shape knowledge in exploratory activities.
Paired with spunky characters and a dance party underneath it all, the app is a great tool to get kids ready for school and have fun on the way. The game is designed specifically for young children (aged 3-6) to explore and play with independently. For instructions for adults and tips on how to further the learning, visit www.alphabetrockers.com/apps.html where we provide a full screenshot instruction manual and off-line activities to pair with the game.

I gave this as a gift
I gifted the Alphabet Rockers app to a few friends with kids in the age range, and I got such great feedback! Their kids were completely absorbed as they tapped deeper and deeper into the screens, unwittingly learning about counting, letters, money, colors, and more. A nice little gift for $1.99 that will buys your adult friends some much needed peace and quiet. Kids don't need to know the Alphabet Rockers music to enjoy the app and they feel their way easily through the interface. Cute graphics!
Great for young kids, and even entertaining for adults.
I've bought Alphabet Rockers CDs for my friend's kids for a couple of years now, and I recommend them. I got the app this week for my niece(3) and nephew(5) to entertain them during our Thanksgiving prep. It's really cute, smart, and fun with great colors and music. I like that it was developed with the help of educators too. My little guys loved it, and it says a lot that us adults were able to bop along too. Highly recommended!
Worthwhile screen time.
I pretty much don't let my kids play with anything on the iPad or iPhone… except for this. Let's face it, even the "educational" games out there are still a lowly alternative to just putting on some music and letting kids improvise and live in the real world. We are huge fans of the Alphabet Rockers and their positive, fresh vibe! Keep it coming!
