Sorting n Learning game for Kids (best educational special needs Android preschool kids apps)
Sorting n Learning is brand new on the app store and helps kids to learn how to classify objects. Three themes are focused on in the app, with the first one being included in the free version and the other two being available via in-app purchasing. Verbal praise and visual rewards give children with special needs extra support. Great for toddlers or preschoolers as well as kids with special needs, Sorting n Learning is definitely worth previewing.

The Food theme comes free when you download the app and has about 25 different foods to sort into Fruits, Desserts or Vegetables. I waited and waited for a tomato to appear, just to test the theory of whether a tomato was a fruit or vegetable, but tomatoes are conveniently left out of the app. The foods are named as they appear on screen and are dragged and dropped into the the different categories. When a food is placed in the wrong category the child is told, "uh oh" and with every correct placement a smiley face appears and a chime is sounded. Once all of the foods are sorted, the screen is filled with poppable balloons and the child is cheered.
Sorting and categorizing is a simple but essential skill that is more easily learned by preschoolers through play. I love apps for this purpose, not only because there is no way of losing or breaking any of the pieces involved, but also because it can be done on the go. I also love apps that let you try-before-you-buy and with this one, $0.99 is certainly not going to break the bank for the full version. Go take a look for yourself.
