Help your young learner (ages 3-8) gain important pre-number math skills with this easy and clear matching game. Matching shapes and colors, and learning the concepts of few-or-many and big-or-little are the basic skills necessary for understanding mathematical relationships.
Developed for your iPad, this game will teach and reinforce category sorting. Pre-Number Category Sorting requires 3-5 minutes for a young learner to complete, making this iPad app ideal for students with limited attention spans or those requiring highly visual or tactile learning experiences. Additionally, these activities have been uniquely designed to lock and play only in the portrait mode in order to simplify game play and eliminate an orientation switch if young learners jostle the iPad while playing.

Ratings and Reviews
Nice basic sorting/matching app for young children!
There are two modes of play to choose from- "voice prompts on" or "voice prompts off". I really like how in the "voice prompts on" mode, the shapes are identified using the correct math terminology. For example, the kite is called a rhombus (not a diamond). Other shapes included in app are square, hexagon, octagon, triangle, rectangle, crescent, circle, oval, parallelogram, and star. I also like how some "real world" objects are included in the shape matching/sorting. The app is good for teaching early matching/sorting skills and basic properties of matter. Includes basic properties to sort by (shape, color, size-big/small, quantity-more/less). Would like to see a few more objects added, to include 2-3 objects to match to each pocket chart row.
Good beginning app
This is a great app for beginning concepts. Love the pocket chart concept, just like in a real classroom. Bright colors, clear directions. I like that you can turn the voice on & off. Would have liked to see a way to get back to the main menu, changes in the position of the pictures on the cards and more concepts. Would also like to choose which concept to work on first or to do them in order or randomly so if there was a specific concept you were working on, you could start with that one. I do like that real world objects are used for matching the shapes. Think this is a solid app for beginning math concepts and will gladly recommend it.
Simpe, Easy, Fun!
I love using this with my students to help build their geometry vocabulary. I espeically like how it says the name of each shape as you match it. The color one doesn't do this, but at that point they know what they are working on. I also like how it also incorporates real objects into shapes (like pizza is a triangle, stop sign is octagon.) It's simple and moves quick enough that it keeps kids engaged!
