Peg + Cat Big Gig is an education app designed for ages 3-5. The children can make music with Peg and Cat and build your child’s math skills. Includes two musical games. Based on the PBS television show Peg + Cat. It costs $1.99 on ITunes but was featured for free from PBS kids free app packet. Peg + Cat uses musical instruments to create music and simple math skills counting up and down by ones and twos, adding one, and repeating patterns. I plan on using this program to go over simple math concepts and introduce music and instruments to students. I used this as an introduction to math concepts and musical techniques can be used for all student.
Here is how it works:
Children learn math skills by learning and creating songs. The characters from the Peg + Cat show are featured. The student can play 12 different songs including the theme song. The free play section is where the students can create their own songs and music. The students can sing along to the songs they make. Using different math techniques adding one or repeating a pattern are used in making the music.
