Alphabet Letter & Number Sequencing, Space Aliens is a great application for your toddler. Not only will it get them familiar with numbers and letters but also the sequence that they fall into. There are four different modes, numbers, letters, capital letters and a mix mode. The mix mode combines numbers and both sets of letters. This can be a bit more difficult but can really show if your child has a grasp on the concepts and all the different letters and numbers.
Alphabet Letter & Number Sequencing, Space Aliens combines education with gaming. Each mode has five sections that you have to complete. After each section you complete you get to place some stickers as a reward. Once you finish all five sections you can save and print the sticker sheet that you chose. I like the idea of a reward system for your good work, but im not sure if virtual stickers are the right choice for a reward. There are great sounds, explaining what you have to do and reading out each letter and number so you can associate a sound with a specific symbol. Overall Alphabet Letter & Number Sequencing, Space Aliens is a great app to get your child familiar with numbers and letters. It will require them to think and really get familiar with each situation where a specific number or letter fits.
