Previously we had the pleasure of looking at Tribal Nova’s iLearn with Poko: Seasons and Weather HD iPad app. We had loads of good things to say about the educational app, and as it would have it, we have the good fortune to be back in Nova’s shaded grove—this time with the iPhone version of the same app. Buckle down, and follow us after the break for a look at iLearn with Poko: Seasons for the iPhone.
As with its larger cousin, iLearn with Poko: Seasons is an educational utility designed to teach children of various ages about the seasons and the weather, including the words and terminology related to both. The iPhone app features three different mini-games, each designed for a different age group and each with a slightly different lesson. The first has your child looking at various pictures of the app’s protagonists and identifying weather elements: This includes things like the clouds, rain, snow, and sunshine versus cloud cover. The next game is for slightly older children, and involves identifying inappropriate clothing or objects for the weather. For example, children must recognize that a sweater and galoshes isn’t the right outfit for a summer day.
Lastly, older children are asked to identify the weather on certain days, and to pick out what the protagonist was doing based on the conditions. Each game reinforces a key aspect of weather and seasons recognition, and each offers a valuable lesson. Not only that, but the games are fluid and fun, meaning your child will be thoroughly engaged throughout.
