As promised, here's a sneak peek at our upcoming software - Little Math and Little Musician.

LITTLE MATH

There are 2 main sections to this - Learning Numbers, and Learning Math.

For Learning Numbers, the program will help you teach your child the concept of numbers.  This will help the child link together the concepts of QUANTITY (eg. showing numbers of dots), NUMERALS (ie., 1, 2, 3, 68, 92, etc) etc.

Like Little Reader, it will be highly customizable, eg., the icons used, and you can import stuff created by others.

For Learning Math, this is basically teaching arithmetic concepts - addition, subtracting, multiplication, and division.  It will be so easy to use. No more spending ages just trying to pre-arrange your math dot cards in order to show equations! smile

We hope to get the first beta out by October.


LITTLE MUSICIAN

Little Musician will teach a child:

Notes & Pitch - ie., the relationship between a note (in terms of pitch), and the representations of the note (eg., the musical staff notation, the letter of the note (eg., G#)).

Rhythm - This aims to enhance the child's sense of rhythm.

Sing Along - This is essentially a baby karaoke, letting them sing along to nursery rhymes.  The best part is, this will also really help a child learn to read too!

And this is Felicity's favorite! You can see her singing Head Shoulders Knees and Toes here:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/jBDsyhX-slE&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/jBDsyhX-slE&rel=1</a>

(If it says "This video no longer exists", just refresh the page and try again.)

We hope to get the first beta of Little Musician out before the end of this year.

------

Hope that gives you some info on what's coming up next!  Stay tuned for more!

If you have any suggestions as to what we can include, please let us know!

wow- Little musician sounds so great!  I am amazed at how attune to music my kiddos have been since day one (actually even in utero I really felt they were both connected to music!) and am so excited for a system that would allow them to start understanding the mechanics of music better - how different tones are visually represented and how different rhythms are notated...how exciting! 
Maybe it could also expose them to the terminology associated with the dynamics of music - how music is played... staccato/legato or the intensity or changes in music...crescendo, etc.  I know that my four year old has picked up just a few of these from tv programs and it has been helpful in softening her voice in quiet places!  Rather than telling her "be quiet" during a church service or in the library, I can say "diminuendo" or "pianissimo" and have her change her ways.  smile
Looking forward to it for sure!

Yeah! I already plan to bring my son to Kindermusic when he gets older, but this will be great to start beforehand!

I'm excited to see the Little Math.  Our little one seems to be really into the little reader and I'm hoping to broaden his skills to math!  Please keep us up to date on when these programs will be available!

Beta on Little Math or Little Musician in September?  Will Little Math be capable of teaching higher order mathematics like algebra and calculus?  I can't wait!!!!

I need it also, but they say it is easier to teach little ones higher order math than is to teach it in highschool.

The September date I mentioned is for Little Math.  We are aiming for September, but should have it out by November latest in any event.

It will just help us teach numbers and arithmetic, not algebra, calculus or quantum mechanics...  Those would be reserved for when we do "Big Math"... Wink

Wow, September!  I can't wait.  Teaching my little one to read has already become so much easier I'm positive the Math and Music will be a big hit too!!  I was already worried about making sure my child was ready for school and he isn't even in pre-school yet, but now I am sure that he will be ready because we will have all these awesome tools that you are creating!!!!

Oh, do I get from that that there is a recommendation for teaching algebra, calculus and so on for little kids? All I've heard about till now is just quantities...
