Pre-K Letters and Numbers is a great app for children trying to learn the alphabet as well as their numbers.
When you first click on the app, your brought to a screen to add yourself as a student. After you fill in your information, your able to click on 3 different options of play. "ABC" , "abc" and "1-2-3".
Option ABC is simply to help you learn how to draw your capital letters of the alphabet. With a great way of teaching, you follow the numbers in order to complete the drawing of the letter. It goes by a step by step process of how to draw the letter. After you have finished the letter correctly, it sounds the letter out and a word is spoken to you, to try and help sound out words! If you mess up you just have to start again! Like the ABC..abc, is just the drawing of all your lower-case letters of the alphabet!
The 1-2-3 option is to draw out your numbers with a step by step process of how once again. When your finished the correct drawing it gives you an example of how it is used..one orange..two cherries..three frogs.
The background music for this app is great, its very soothing and playful which is good for children trying to learn something! The graphics are playful and cheerful as well, with your basic clouds floating by with bright colors to help the mood. A good thing about this app is that you have a report card that will give you all the statistics you may interested in looking at to see how your child has done, how long they have been playing for and how many times they have attempted it!
This app is free to download, but you only get to do ABC and 123. For all the letters of the alphabet you need to buy the in-app purchase for 1.99. One suggestion I could make to the developer, is to have an option while in the game to "preview" or have an example of the letter or number being drawn, perhaps to help a little more if needed! I would recommend this for anyone trying to teach there child how to draw or recognize their letter and numbers
