Soft toys interact with iPad learning apps to teach literacy and math to young students

Overview

Tiggly Words, Tiggly Math and Tiggly Shapes are iPad, Android and Kindle apps that are operated using silicon manipulatives to integrate play and physical manipulation to teach math, language and problem solving skills. For a one time purchase, users receive the app itself, five sets of manipulatives, workbooks, and access to other Tiggly products. Since October 2014, over 50,000 users have started using Tiggly around the world.

APPROACH

Tiggly works by integrating digital learning technology with physical manipulatives of numbers, letters and shapes. The student touches the soft-toy manipulative to the screen to complete tasks.

Literacy with Tiggly Words includes vowel manipulatives that students use to make words, write stories, and practice long and short vowel sounds and spelling patterns. Tiggly Math uses manipulatives for the numbers 1-5 to practice counting, addition and using a numberline. With a focus on problem solving and creativity, Tiggly Shapes asks students to create stories and drawings using four basic shapes. Tiggly offers free downloadable activities for teachers and homeschool parent-teachers to incorporate the application into curriculum. Tiggly can be used as a learning tool for small group or independent work to either introduce or reinforce skills in literacy, math, and problem solving.

The Tiggly Educator’s Set can purchased for $150.00 each and includes five sets of manipulatives, free access codes to three tiggly tablet games, a teacher handbook, 5 sets of student activity books, 5 sets of student thinker journals, and a classroom storage drawer.
