Description

******** 2013 Editor's Choice Awards from Children's Technology Review

 ******** "This app is a must-have for classrooms that have students with early numeracy skills." ACES.org Teacher

 "Use Count to 100! for counting practice, seek and find number games, or grab some counters (Lego Bricks work) and create sets while using the app. So many possibilities!" KinderTown 

"I have observed the children in my iPad classes coming back to this app again and again. The various classrooms I have taught in over the years always have a 100 board in them. This app reinforces and teaches the same concepts, but in a more engaging way. Young children are completionists and they love to count all the way to 100. This app did not receive an award from Children’s Technology Review for nothing, but for being an excellent teaching tool." Terrific2s 
 "This app has been useful in teaching children with Autism, children with visual perception issues, and those working on motor planning skills." BridgingApps

Help take your child's counting skills to the next level with Count To 100!, a counting app with something every kid loves to press — elevator buttons!

 We've transformed the 100 chart, used in schools to help develop number sense and recognition, into an interactive version to help motivate and delight your child with a friendly voice, uplifting music, and those irresistible buttons that light up. The numbers are positioned in lines of 10s to give your child an understanding of how numbers relate to each other and how to simplify math problems. This helps your child to count in sequence from left to right. Mastering the number line and understanding the fluency of numbers will contribute to your child's success in math-related life skills such as counting money, telling time, and reading a thermometer.

 OPTIONS

 * Display buttons from 1-100 to break down learning goals into smaller steps. * Skip counting by 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, all the way up to 25s. * Explore numbers in ANY ORDER mode. This mode may be used as a visual tool to illustrate math concepts such as more or less than, before or after, between, and addition and subtraction. * Options to ‘tap’ or ‘swipe’ across the rows and columns of buttons. * Nine light up colours to choose from. 
* Load and Save your settings into 4 PRESET buttons. * Options to record time, and find a flower hidden in the buttons. * Turn on or off the counting voice (English, French, Spanish), music, sound effects, and even the button labels to suit your needs.
 Count To 100! launches directly into the counting board. The setting button is tucked neatly in a drawer like menu to prevent accidental presses from exiting the board. Just launch and start counting!

  • Excellent Hundred Board App

    By Terrific2s
    Ridiculously simple concept and app-yet highly effective and useful. On the face of it, this app seems to not have very much to it. Some reviewers state this and rate the app poorly because of this. Yes, this app has no bells. No whistles, no dancing elephants, no crazy cheers and praises, BUT it is still a highly effective teaching tool. It is simple, straightforward and focuses on a unique and specific task-counting to 100! It has several options for limiting the amount to count up to and for whether to count by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s or 10’s. The app says the number as it is touched. I have observed the children in my iPad classes coming back to this app again and again. The various classrooms I have taught in overt the years always have a 100 board in them. This app reinforces and teaches the same concepts, but in a more engaging way. Young children are completionists and they love to count all the way to 100. This app did not receive an award from Children’s Technology Review for nothing, but for being an excellent teaching tool.
  • Excellent 100 board app

    My 3 year old learned to count by 2s, 5s and 10s using this app. It's a straight forward 100s chart and the numbers light up when pressed. Parents can control how the child is counting (by 2s or 5s or whatever) in the settings. If the wrong button is pushed it doesn't light up. A really great app!
  • Excellent math learning tool!

    So thrilled to see an app of this caliber in the app store. This is the kind of app I think of when I see how far technology has come and how iPads are absolutely educational tools for many kids today, lucky kids! Great for both struggling math learners of any age, or young learners who don' t truly understand how numbers are related (i.e. kids who are simply memorizing their math facts) This goes beyond rote learning as it encourages exploration. This is not a math game, so if you are expecting to plunk it down in front of your child and have it do all the work, you probably won't be a fan-there are plenty of great apps for that, which we also enjoy, but there is a time and place for both. What this is, is a useful tool for practicing counting by 1s, 2s,5s and 10s. This is also a tool that you will want to have available to your child as he is doing his homework, or to use in the classroom when doing simple calculations. By having a visual grid of numbers available, a child can work on a word problem involving addition or subtraction by tapping on one of the numbers involved, and then either counting forward or backward to arrive at the answer- this is how we use it, and even my older son has used it for simple multiplication facts. When my 6 year old starts to whine during math homework I remember to open this app up for him and both of us are much happier for it. Just as he would use a number line or little plastic blocks to figure out an answer, he can manipulate the numbers on the grid in the Any Tap mode. FYI I initially wasn't sure how to access the settings and thought there was something wrong with the app. There isn't. There simply is a "lock" feature to keep a child from accidentally exiting the screen. I learned that to get to the home page/settings, just tap the home symbol once, and then quickly again. It needs two taps in a row to get into it. Then you can change the counting structure, sound effects etc.
  • Awful app

    This is not what I expected from an app that costs $1.99. It's basic and not challenging at all. What a waste of money.
  • Great counting app

    By Emma Bean's Mom
    Simple concept, well made. Perfect tool to practice counting and explore number relationships. In settings there are lots of options for how to use the app. I set it up so that my youngest daughter can tap the numbers in any order to hear them named. It also offers tips for parents.
  • Not good

    By Ythisapp
    This is awful. Was not worth it. You just tap on the box and it display the number only. Not a challenge and not a teaching app. Don't waste your $1.99.
  • Classic

    Count to 100 is a must have app for anyone with Childers that are struggling with early math skills. It is an digitized version of the classic 100 chart that is used in classrooms around the world. Don't miss out on this gem.
  • Really????

    Doesn't work. Press the numbers and nothing happens... Press the home button and nothing happens. Don't buy.
  • Simple counting with many uses

    By ACES Teacher
    The title says it all - this app counts to one hundred. What makes it worthwhile, however, are the various ways a student can practice counting to 100 (or any multiple of 10 up to 100). The settings allow for skip-counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, and 25s. Students can explore the numbers by tapping arbitrarily or follow a forced-sequence. Once a number is selected, it is highlighted yellow and a tone plays with a female voice saying the number. Either of these options can be turned off in the menu. The developer cleverly designed the home button to activate on two taps, thereby ignoring inadvertent taps by students. Using the Guided Access accessibility feature of iOS 6 can disable all the option buttons, of course. Some ideas for using this app in the classroom include: A scaffolded counting experience for students during lessons to support 1-1 correspondence. For example, students can put items in a container one at a time and use the app as a counter to augment working memory. By setting the grid to 30, students can practice counting during calendar activities (except on months with 31 days, of course!). Students can estimate numbers on the grid with the option of displaying the numbers only when tapped and using the 'tap any' mode. This app is a must-have for classrooms that have students with early numeracy skills. While it specializes in one skill, counting, it's many options make it a useful tool in the classroom. note: some reviews on the AppStore mistakenly claim that the home button doesn't work and that music and speech can't be turned off independent of one another. After testing this app, I can confirm that the home button does work (requires two taps) and all sounds can be toggled on/off within the home menu.

    I bought this for my little girl to help her be more familiar with counting and her use of numbers. After installing App and running, I saw there was no access to change counting structure as the home button was not working. Too bad, in theory it sounds good, I just doesn't work as promised,
