Announcing Draw and Count Games in Kids Academy App
April 2, 2021
We are delighted to announce the arrival of our new Draw and Count games we have recently added to the Kids Academy app in the following Pre-K courses: Mathematical Practice and Arts and Crafts.
Your preschooler will be asked to follow the drawing steps, one at a time, using simple, guided audio instructions. The drawing steps incorporate invisible blocked drawing boundaries paired with individual dotted borderlines, so your child will feel successful as they color in their charming little creatures.
- Fascinating learning experience. The delightful soundtrack, adorable animals, and dynamic choice of ten vibrant digital markers to illustrate their animated character will captivate your child.
- Animated characters. Kids are positively encouraged to trace the number to see their animated animals come to life! Each animation sequence is unique to each game, and your child will delight in seeing what their animal might do or what sounds they might make!
- Self-paced activity. The activity is paced at their own speed, so the next audio instruction will not progress until they have selected the arrow icon to indicate they are ready for the next step.
- Positive feedback. Each action or step your child completes is met with immediate positive feedback and includes the naming of selected colored markers.
These games will effectively encourage your child’s number identification learning with naturally supplemented Pre-K skills:
- color identification
- language development
- fine motor skills
- counting skills
The objectives behind the new Draw and Count games can help little learners establish number sense as a foundational ability in their numeracy development. The bulk of initial number sense occurs in Pre-K, K, and 1st grades, and you can nurture that ability with these adorable and fun games!
Fine motor skills and the ability to follow instructions are embedded and strengthened through leisurely and entertaining practice. Each Draw and Count game is focused on one number (1 – 10) and one creature: smiling flower, striped cat, shiny fish, pink bird, friendly puppy, squiggly jellyfish, pokey hedgehog, elegant butterfly, shy turtle, and bouncy frog.
In addition to teaching fundamental drawing skills like straight lines, curves, zig-zags, spirals, and circles, these games include general anatomy terms to help your child recognize and associate specific parts with particular animals or plants.
Supplement your preschooler’s learning with these fun, unique, and hands-on Draw and Count games. We promise your little learner will not want to wait to finish them all!
