Good Free App of the Day - Preschool Genius Math Booster Zoo - Limited Time Only!

This brand-new app is a must-have for preschool children, especially those who like animals! I was highly engaged by the realistic pictures alone, and the wonderful activities put this app over the top.

Realistic-looking animals will lead a child through preschool math skills in an engaging way.  Twelve different skills can be practiced in Preschool Genius Math Booster Zoo.

 It is discounted from $2.99 to FREE for a limited time, so don't miss out.

If you would like to download Preschool Genius Math Booster Zoo (FREE for a limited time; released at $2.99 and changing to a FREE with in-app purchase model soon), please support Smart Apps for Special Needs by using our link:

A new version will be released soon that will provide 3 of the 12 games for free with an in-app purchase behind a parental lock to open the rest. Download now and keep all games for FREE, with no additional in-app purchases.

Preschoolgenius2Preschool Genius Math Booster Zoo covers a range of preschool skills in an engaging way, with realistic animals and scenery. As the user moves around to change the scenery, the animals follow. It's these extra features that make the graphics so engaging. I enjoyed playing with the scenery and seeing the wonderful pictures before I even started completing the actual skills.

Farm animals star in the first four activities. A child can count animals, complete patterns, choose which set has more and find a specific animal. Touch each animal in the picture to have the number said aloud and for the number to appear on that animal. If a child is more advanced and does not need to touch and count, a simple tap on the answer at the top of the screen completes the task. Many of the activities allow two different ways to choose the answer.

Preschoolgenius3The next four games deal with zoo animals. The skills found here are addition, subtraction, missing number and finding pairs of animals. When adding, there are two different types of animals to represent each number. This is a great visual for children. When subtracting, the child actually clicks on the animals one by one to have them run off the screen before counting the remaining animals or before choosing the answer at the top.

Does your child like Fruit Ninja? There is a shape activity that is very similar to it on the third page--slash through the named shape! Another activity tests a child's memory by having animals run into spots and then placing curtains in front of them. The child must click to see if they remember which curtains the animals are behind. The final activities are a shape identifier and a animal number balance.

The questions are very clear in this app and the feedback is encouraging. If an incorrect answer is chosen, that answer will go away and the child will be asked to try again.

Preschoolgenius4This app really is a great find for preschool aged children. The full version will remain free for a limited time, which is discounted from the normal $2.99, so don't miss out! Once a new version is released, there will be three activities free with in-app purchases to open the other nine. These purchases will be behind a parental lock. This is definitely a must-have app!
