Animal Sounds is an app that is designed by Papumba to help your young child take their first steps into learning animal names and the sounds they make. Children can choose from a variety of animals and their environments and play games or take trivia challenges to help them with their memory and listening skill acquisition.
The app features over 20 animals in habitats ranging from sea to forest to home. When the child clicks on an individual animal, they will hear the name of the animal said out loud as well as the sound that animal makes. Clicking on the animal again will give a sentence about the animal which repeats its name.
The memory games and trivia questions that are available for each animal and their environment feature bright colors and fun sounds. And the best part of the app is that it is designed specifically for use by young children so adults do not have to guide their children through certain portions of the app; they can simply use the touch interface on their device and begin to learn right away.
Animal Sounds is free but unlocking all of the app’s features requires purchasing the entire program.
Preschool apps are a great way for young children to practice their working memory skills. All of the activities in the app are designed to help children hear and see the sounds of animals and their names while being asked to perform a task such as clicking on the animal once or twice.These types of activities help build the connection in the child’s brain between the information they are being presented and the task they are trying to complete.
Focus: Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.
Learning apps are also a great way for children to begin to practice their focusing skills. Because the games and activities in Animal Sounds are short and sustained, children will be practicing this skill by paying attention to the directions and then participating in the game. For example, the memory game builds up in complexity, starting with just two animals and adding more as the child successfully completes each game. This allows the child to start with a very small task and gradually increases the need for focus over time.
