Description

Designed by a Teacher and parent to foster the learning of shapes through play and positive reinforcement! Learn shapes, enjoy puzzles, and have fun learning!

Thanks for taking a look at my app! I designed this because, as a parent, I wanted an app that would teach my kids shapes in a fun and positive way.

Giving kids the opportunity to learn in a guided way, and then also including a fun shape-oriented activity is the best way to build retention of new concepts.

In this app your children will enjoy the following steps to shape learning:


•Learn
Each group of shapes will be presented individually, shown to the child, and then a description of that shape will be given.

"This is a Circle. A Circle is Round. Touch the Circle."


•Touch
After presentation of the shapes, your child will be asked to touch the correct shape from a group of three shapes.

"Touch the Circle."


•Match
After touching shapes, your child will be asked to use their finger to drag and drop to match shapes.

This is a free play area where they can do any shapes in any order.


•Play
After completing the learning exercises, children will be able to choose from 16 different shape puzzles to further reinforce their learning through play!



Shapes Included in the app cover all essential Pre-K shapes that children should know and be able to identify before kindergarten.

•Circle
•Square
•Triangle
•Rectangle
•Heart
•Star

•Diamond
•Crescent

Not great

The screenshots looked okay for this, but upon downloading I realized it has NO SOUND. What this means is that my 2 year old who is learning shapes is expected to read directions??? I can sit next to her and read them for her, but then we can just do that with one of her toys, what’s the app doing for us? By the time she learns to read she will be way beyond what this app purports to teach... I don’t understand what age this could be intended for?

The other big problem is the game design. Most of the activities can be accomplished by tapping the screen repeatedly and randomly. My daughter got bored within seconds.

Great Creative Learning Tool

We've had this game since it first came out, and while both kids have known all of their shapes for a while, they still enjoy playing this! I love how it teaches the different shapes and reinforces them. I also love the variety of different shapes it teaches.

Keeps kids engaged, teaches effectively

My two and four year old nieces will play this for at least 30 minutes at a time. Usually they'll even play through the whole game more than once. It does a good job of reinforcing correct choices and encouraging when incorrect choices are made. I think the game changes tactics enough (dragging to match, learning new shapes, puzzles, etc.) to keep the kids engaged. By this point, having played through the whole thing probably 8 times, they have pretty much learned everything...at least the four year old has for sure, but still ask to play this game, especially when there's an opportunity to show it to someone new.

Before this update, the game did crash every once in a while. However, I haven't seen it crash once with this update.
