Super great learning app!

We love this app. I think it has great information and it is engaging and fun. My issue is that I think the fart, burp, and toilet sounds are a little overdone. I have just been listening to my child play this and I can’t believe that I’m hearing a fart sound throughout the educational videos multiple times throughout each video. I am one who typically has no problems with this, and so if I’m having an issue with it, then that’s kind of a big deal. They are too frequent and pretty distracting. Maybe it’s to help keep the kids engaged in a subject by making it sound like an extremely flatulent classroom? I don’t know, I think it should be taken down a notch or ten… other than that, it’s a very cute app with a lot of fun information.

Thank you for taking the time for review our learning program. Noted on the sounds and we'll look to see if the volume is a bit high . Those farting sounds are only part of the ambient sounds in the human body section. We put specific ambient sounds in each virtual field trip ie: bird sounds in the rainforest. We thought that sounds funny human sounds would make the human body submit more fun. We'll look to improve the volume.

Excellent Program!

I’m a retired teacher and a mom, and I have not found a better program than Marco Polo. My tenant’s preschool age daughter asks for it by name. We tried a lot of free apps, to see what we liked. I wouldn’t give any of them more than one star (at best). Marco Polo is excellent for preschool through primary grades. It is an flexible, highly visual program that can be adapted to an individual’s needs. It can be used for introducing or reviewing both verbal and pre-reading/reading skills leading to mastery of foundational skills (patterns/memory/phonics/vocabulary). It introduces children to a wide variety of non fiction topics, thus supporting comprehension. It is a high interest program that appeals to children. And, like all excellent programs, the teacher in me suggests that parents use it together with their children, because one thing always leads to another! 🙂

Engaging and Fun!!

As a homeschooling mom, this app is an AWESOME supplement to your child's education!!! I'm wildly impressed how fun and engaging this app is. Shout out to the team behind this putting in every little detail to make this function beautifully and effortlessly for little ones.
I have a feeling my kids will be treasuring this as a part of their routine for a longggg time. Tonight was their first time using the app. Within just 45 minutes they had flocked to me at the dinner table to teach me all the fun facts they learned!
I can't even tell you how many times I heard them say, " MOM DID YOU KNOW???...."
They were even able to incorporate what they learned with our dinner, they were just FILLED WITH SO MUCH EXCITEMENT and that right there is what learning is all about!!
