## Fido&Pumpkin Position Words

This is a Mathematics app that helps young children gain a better understanding of positional concepts in the English language. Due to the fact that the app focusses on 'position', this is where the Mathematics aspect comes from, however, there is also a literacy element to the app as it introduces the user to a number of words as they work through the app. Depending on the user’s desire either the Mathematics or literacy aspects can be seen as secondary to the other however I would suggest this would work better as a Mathematics app.
