Good Free App of the Day: TallyTots - practice numbers 1-20 - Limited Time!

Do you know a child that needs practice with recognizing and counting numbers 1-20? Memorizing numbers and letters can be a difficult task for some children. Repetition is very important for children with special needs, as many need it to grasp a skill completely. TallyTots provides just the right amount of repetition and creative activities for a child to enjoy for FREE.

There is no repetition needed to download TallyTots (FREE for a limited time, normally $2.99, iPad/iPhone). Please support Smart Apps for Special Needs by using our link:

External link to iTunes is accessible by holding down the button for 5 seconds.

What is Free: The whole app is free for a limited time.
****Only the app's developers can control when an app is free.  All apps that we post as free are verified to be free at the time of the post.  We make no guarantees otherwise.****

The app opens up with the numbers 1-20 on tiles that come onto the screen in order. The numbers stay on the screen throughout all activities, which is a great visual for children to see the numbers in sequence. Any number can be picked from the main screen to go to the activity or a child can move through them all by starting with one.

Each time a number activity is chosen, the app will count up to that number first, while showing each number on the screen. Then, an activity for the number will appear, such as feeding 15 flies to a frog, putting 17 pennies in a penny bank, placing 4 batteries into a portable TV and making a 7 layer sandwich. Many of the activities cover daily skills that a child would be familiar with. A child can move between numbers by clicking to go to the next number or previous number on the side or by holding down any number on the number line until it says "Go".

Additional activities include a number song and practice counting to 100. A child will click each number in order as they count to 100 with the app -- another great repetitive activity.

This app is great; free or not, but it is even better that it is FREE for a limited time. Don't miss out on getting it for free!
