What you should know:
A monkey math teacher—who would have thought? The popular primate from the Monkey Preschool app series is back and serving up number fun in this counting app.
Little learners are asked to tackle early arithmetic activities, such as fill-in numbers, basic shape identification, counting, and simple addition and subtraction exercises. The adorably animated narrator does a jig and cheers kids on for correct answers, motivating children to pay attention to questions and answer choices instead of randomly tapping around the screen. From popping answer bubbles and adding with pictures to a number sequence that helps baby turtles find their way to the surf, this app has enough variety to engage little ones. Success wins prizes for a virtual aquarium, which kids can interact with for a mental break between activities. Different drills are designed to work simultaneously on distinct learning pathways, offering practice that’s applicable to different kinds of learners.
Multiplayer support and a progression of difficulty mean this app is more likely to stand the test of time. Adults can adjust settings in the kid-proofed settings section. Thankfully, this tool is free of ads, in-app purchase prompts and promotions. For well-rounded early number practice, this app’s a solid choice.
