“Trekins” is an entertaining sensory learning game which could be regarded as a digital version of a hopscotch game.
Depending on the chosen board, children can practice spelling high frequency words as well as reinforce arithmetic skills such as counting, mental math calculations with up to three numbers. According to a given problem, children need to identify the correct track of tiles and travel from one tile to another in the right sequence. Depending of the children’s position each time, feedback is given.
With this game, children can develop motor planning, coordination, timing, strategy and gross motor skills. The teacher can choose a board with just colors so that the children need to step on the tiles with the required color thus improving visual perception, body control and balance.
