What is it

This is a simple card matching game to help children learn numbers and counting. The aim of the game is to match all of the cards in pairs by tapping on them, using written numbers, groups of objects, or a mix of both. Cards can be faced up to make the game easier, or faced down to develop memory skills. At the end of each round children are given positive encouragement, to keep them interested in the game.

What our experts think

This app is great because although it’s simple, it can be played in different ways. The “Pictures” games help develop the ability to categorise based on shape and colour, as well as practicing following instructions – for example, matching cards by colour, and not because they are animals. The “Numbers” games are fantastic for teaching children that numbers represent amounts of objects, because it requires these to be matched together (such as the number 3 with an image of three socks). The groups of objects also help with learning to count. The games can be played with the cards facing down as well, to improve memory skills. At the end of each round children are given positive feedback, which encourages them to continue playing.
