This app is all about helping Fiete! It features 15 interactive games or "tasks": sandwiches must be buttered, tires mounted, and ships loaded. In a playful way, children are able to practice both their fine motor and problem solving skills.
Prepare to use this app by using the following activity:
As you open up this app, Fiete will start waving. Encourage your child to wave back and greet him by saying “hello”! Next, encourage them to try greeting him in a few different languages by repeating after you. Choose any language, or, here are a few options: “Hola” (Spanish), “Aloha” (Hawaiian), “Bonjour” (French), and “Ciao” (Italian).
Help your child get the most out this app experience by trying any of the following activities:
What do you see?
Explore all of the icons or “tasks” with your child. They may start pointing and identifying the objects right away, or prompt them by asking them what they see, or to find a specific object. Encourage them to go beyond the icons, too, and notice the objects on the islands, the ocean and sea life. Take this one step further by helping your child make connections with particular objects that they encounter on a regular basis. For instance, remind them of a time when you saw a ladybug, used an umbrella, or ate an apple.
How do we help Fiete?
Have your child choose a task. For each task, this app will not explain what needs to be done. Instead, you will need to help your child to observe the scene and then try to figure out what Fiete needs. Remind your child that each task is related to helping Fiete in some way. For each task ask them questions such as: What do you see? What is happening? What do you think Fiete needs? How can we help him? Do this for each task and eventually your child may begin to figure out more and more quickly how they can help Fiete!
Extend your child’s learning by using the following activity:
Praise your child for helping Fiete! Talk about how nice it is and how good it feels to help others. Then, ask them to draw a picture that shows either how they feel when they help someone, or a picture of them helping someone. Afterwards, ask them to explain their drawing to you.
