It’s back to school time for many kids and this app is a good accompaniment for new students. SlateMath for Kids – Kindergarten and 1st Grade Games is an educational app that helps teach early math skills to its kindergarten and first grade audience. The app has 38 math activities which, for the young user, are each disguised as a fun game. The graphics and animations are lively with backdrops based on various different countries, like Scotland and Greece, without being distracting or taking away from the math theme. Each destination has different types of math games along the app journey.
Early math skills are the basis of the games, ranging from: counting, writing number digits, and pattern recognition. The instructions are clear and concise. The content of the math skills follow the common core state standards and the app was developed in part by a group of early-age math experts. This app is a triple threat; it’s educational, fun, and free!
