Grocery Game for Kids - Learn Numbers & Counting

Naveed Abbas

Among many first things we try to teach our children is the counting forward & backward (counting with increment and decrement). To achieve this goal, preschool & Montessori grade teachers adapt many techniques and practices that include small interactive exercises in the form of games. These exercises indirectly stores information in the children’s sub-conscious mind that helps learn counting with incrementing and decrementing.

Grocery Expert is a fun activity game for kids that uses one most important and widely used technique. It requires the kids to pick right amount of grocery objects (fruits, vegetables, dairy etc) in the grocery bag.

This amazing technique really improves the counting with incrementing and decrementing numbers. This technique also promotes children’s evaluation skills. The app consists of variety of objects that promotes object recognition also.

Grocery Expert is an ideal app to be practiced in the classroom for several reasons, few listed below.

The app is designed after carefully considering children’s finger touch size, drag distance, less user interface clutter and most importantly designing an entertaining user interface.

This app is tested on the kids aged 3-8 and interestingly the kids started to improve in several areas including counting forward & backward, better object recognition & increasing IQ are few ones.

It consists of professional-grade voiceover and few soft background music tracks that can be turned off.

The app also contains multiple levels. The app starts with easy (very simple scenario) that progresses as the kid succeeds it. User can alternatively choose the desired level.

The app provides a positive and passive learning activity for kids.

The app is provided free to download for evaluation purposes but to avoid distraction, it is highly recommended that you practice the ads-free complete app specially in the classroom.

We at Holiday Educationist have a team of trained & certified teachers onboard to consult and proof-read the apps' content for the optimum quality assurance.

There is a great effort put in to produce this app. Kindly take a moment to write a small review. Your encouragement helps us to produce better apps.

We appreciate your patience to read the complete description :)
