Moona Veggies: Toddler Kids Learning Puzzle Games
by Moona Group
Moona Puzzles Vegetables is an educational game for children between 2 and 6 years old to help them learn more than 50 new words for veggies, gardening and botanics. The app was designed in collaboration with professionals of early development. It includes 5 types of funny games which succeed one another in a specific order to help kids learn names of vegetables and their spelling. It also develops memory, attention skills and logic. We call this method, which consists in offering the child a series of short tasks, “Gold Key”. It was created with a psychologist to help children learn to work on a task until completion while developing positive attitudes to learning.

App List for SLPs ~ sorted by goal area ~ over 900 apps!

I am in several SLP Facebook groups and see numerous posts each week asking, “What are the best apps?” So, I decided to spend some time compiling a list for this blog post. Read more at OMazing Kids.
