Hyper-production of new learning apps for 2019
We are continuing our creation of new mathematical and logic games during November and December – which includes the holidays-, making our games portfolio bigger and versatile. Our desire for continuous enrichment with modern games is like a collector addiction, something we cannot stop since it gives more powerful tools to teachers which means subtle ways for children’s improvement.
Math with balances
Trying to get kids to understand balances could be an uneasy task even for a great teacher except you have some tools to assist that procedure. The math with balances game generates balances that grab a kids attention by using eye-catching images like that of cookies, fruits, ice-creams, vegetables and the like. Kids learn to balance the last Libra (or weights) with three Libras in balance.
Each Libra weights with numbers on the right side and present four equations with three variables. It is a motivating, simple and effective way to make an introduction to equations with variables for kids. Making them more understandable and concrete, with examples kids can align to real-life examples.
Find the shortest path
The game allows kids to harness their problem-solving skills to find the most concise way
This game opens up the mind of kids in developing strategic solutions to problems the game presents. The game has a task of finding the shortest path to exit for the player. BY using images like cats, dogs, and other animals, the game hopes to spark attention and captivate a kid to trying to get his or her cat out of the blocks.
The mathematical game has directions embedded at the lower path of the screen and the shortest route as well to make the games more comfortable to play.
Another game that we have designed that has proven useful to kids learning math is the maze game. The maze game features different difficulty levels and design which is fun and challenging for both younger and older kids.
Mazes serve well in enhancing a child’s problem-solving skill while building their strategic thinking. Another unique benefit of this game is that a therapist can have a perception of the capabilities within a kid, their strength and their weaknesses, in the way they play and address issues of concern during therapy sessions.
The maze game can also be placed on a wall/vertical surface. Below are several reasons to practice mazes in the classroom:
• Enhances problem-solving ability: where children develop their brain functionality in planning and racking out deployable strategies required in advancing through a maze from start to finish or vice-versa.
• Excellent motor control: this helps a kid move through the maze and controls the marker without hitting the border lines which are in black. By engaging in the game with full attention, kids learn to move through the maze and gain control over the writing equipment.
• Visual motor enhancement: one aspect of mazes that comes in handy for a child’s development is the visual representation of problems. This help enhance the visual motor of the brain as a child has to find possible solutions to a maze problem with their eyes. The benefit of this is better reading and writing due to word recognition.
• Boosts confidence: a kid that has learnt to move through the maze especially with ease would have developed necessary motor skills that help them stand out and confidently attempt tasks presented to them in class. We are all aware of how mazes work.
Most times we get stuck and other times we make it through to the end – quite challenging! The maze game is designed for kids who are quite older. However, it still has the features and design that keep the game challenging and interesting even for these older kids.
The subtraction game employs images that kids are used to every day and creates stories around the equations to make it easier and more realistic for kids to solve.
Numbers are presented with images; numbers are visually quantified. The numbers that are to be subtracted are shown with crossed images.
Children can in a natural way visualize figure out what is Minuend, the number that is to be subtracted from, and what is Subtrahend – the number that is to be deducted.
In this new game, we are matching five different equations on the left with corresponding quantities on the right. Learning subtractions in a motivational environment, this is how a child’s creativity blossoms.
Find the Pattern
Another game to boost the problem solving and memorization skill of kids is this one as it helps them see a pattern and create a picture out of it. This game also uses images to create patterns that kids are used to, to assist easy comprehension.
Images are placed in a 9×9 table, creating intricate patterns, like a wallpaper created from kids imagination. Kids have to spot same patterns up to, drag patterns from the bottom part to the up, drop them and match patterns.
Game Why is the Memory Game Important?
The visual memory game is one of the best games for a child as it focuses on improving the memory capacity.
According to researchers, consistent practice with memory games increases the communication skills, self-awareness, self-confidence and self-development of a child. Memory games enhance a child’s focus which directly impacts learning but in the class and out of it.
What Can I Do to Enhance My Child’s Brain Development?
Further research by the US Department of education, on the brain development of a child, suggests that exposing kids to memory games like matching similar objects or recognizing similar audio sounds fosters improved learning and quick adaptation.
Kids learn concentration, enhancing solution-finding, develop strategic mindsets, increase reflexes as well as expand memory capacity. These games are fun ways of actively promoting a child’s mind without them even knowing.
Playing the above games are proactive ways to connect with a child, improve their brain development and strategic thinking in the most exhilarating way.
Another thing that might come up as a challenge when you teach kids is the speed at which some kids can hold information in their memory. Most times this can make learning both for you and the kid, uninteresting and tiresome. The essence of the memory game is to develop the mind of a child into understanding mathematical concepts with ease. The memory game works by allowing kids to click on images they had previously seen – increasing recognition and memorization.
