'Can you imagine hearing your child’s voice reminding you of their important events? Your child will learn to organize events by picking activity-related icons and recording their own voice reminders. Scheduling is easy and fun -- tap on the date an event is to be scheduled, select one of the app's 28 colorful icons, and record an audio memo with a special message from the child. The app is completely individualized, from the child’s picture profile, to the fun icons they choose to remind them of their activities (soccer balls, ballet slippers, birthday cakes and more!). This child friendly format enables kids to enter into the world of time management with just the touch of their fingers and sound of their voices. How 4KidCal! Works:
Kids simply: 1. Click on the day they want to schedule an activity. 2. Click on one of the app’s many reminder icons. 3. Record an audio memo with the “What, Where, and When” of their planned event. 4. Receive a reminder the morning of the event. It’s that simple!
Key Mathematical Concepts of 4KidCal!: • Teaches the child how to read and understand the calendar. This is a mathematical common core standard mandated from the Department of Education. • Provides the child with “real life” learning and “hands on “ experience. The inquisitive child constantly asks, “How many more days until my birthday?” This provides an understanding of elapse time. A concept explored on state mathematics tests. • Mathematical Vocabulary is explored in everyday activities. Days, weeks, before, after, next. Mathematical terms now have meaning. There’s no complex data entry or tedious busy work with 4KidCal! – it’s just kids, the month ahead, and a great opportunity to start learning how to plan!
