Math can sometimes scare the daylights out of students. Many seem to manage it well enough through the early years, but then fumble as they get older. It doesn't always have to be this way. If you start off showing your little one the fun and creativity in using Math, he or she will think of it more as a game and a challenge. No longer will it be a scary or dreaded subject. Therefore, we must let kids discover that Math is enjoyable, and helps figure out many practical puzzles in life as they grow older.

iLearnWith Poko: Additions! is the perfect way to start off your young ones enjoying the basics of Math, particularly addition. This colorful, kid-friendly and engaging game is made for children aged 3 to 7 years old. The iLearnWith group have developed award winning online learning programs, and thus are adept at capturing children's attention and boosting knowledge. These educational games will also give kids the academic confidence they need to proceed smoothly from Preschool into Elementary School.

In iLearnWith Poko: Additions! Poko, Bibi and Minus have fun with numbers and learn additions by playing with toys in assorted, familiar settings. Play 3 different games with them as shown below:

* Level 1 – Bowling – Count and add up to 6 bowling pins by playing with Poko and Minus.

* Level 2 – Building blocks – Help Poko, Bibi and Minus group sets of blocks and learn to add up to 10.

* Level 3 – Poko’s toy box – Find all the objects Poko is looking for in his room and learn to add up to 15.

Each level contains gentle lessons that will encourage your child to play and learn through countless sessions. Some of the intellectual features of this children's math addition app are as follows:

- Game based learning produces better retention than flashcards or books.

- Teaches first numbers and additions up to 15.

- Meets National Standards for Science teaching in Pre-K and Kindergarten.

- 3 levels of difficulty, increasing in complexity and details

- The difficulty of the game, within each level, is adapted to your child’s progress.

When you first open iLearnWith Poko: Additions!, you will be given a choice of 3 levels with which to work. Level 1: Add up to 6, Level 2: Add up to 10, and Level 3: Add up to 15. Of course, the star of the "show" is Poko, that familiar and curious boy who loves to learn. In Level 1, you will get a chance to go bowling with Poko and Minus. Add up the pins they've knocked down together. As you tap them, the numbers will be recited, and then you are shown 2 response choices. Mr. Murphy, the smiling monkey, will help you and repeat the questions if you get stuck. In Level 2, you get to build with Poko by clicking on the blocks. In this adorable setting, Poko and his friends are playing in a sandset. You must click on the blocks to gather them, then pick their correct total from the choices displayed. Level 3 has a neat twist. Click on the matching toys on the playroom carpet, while learning to add, so the objects can be put away in the toy box!

What I like about this app is that when you answer incorrectly, there is no response or negative answer, but you get a hearty "Good Job" when you are correct! Kids will love to see their score increase in the blue box on top of the display. The beauty of iLearnWithPoko is the cleverly incorporated, self adjusting levels of difficulty. iLearnWith games are designed to adapt to your child's developmental needs not only in Math but across many other important academics too. A thoughtful feature is that your child does not need to read to be able to understand the game. Instructions are spoken and graphics make it it easy to understand. What a wonderful start to get your little one engrossed in the business of Math!
