Review & Giveaway
Upon opening the app you are greeted with Hippo. You enter the players name (you have up to 4) and you are ready to begin.
Located on the bottom of the opening page you will find a link to other Splash Math apps in the iTunes Store, a Parents section and ‘more’ (rate it, gift it, feedback, share it).
The Parents Section:
There are 8 areas of learning addressed in this app. Numbers up to 5, Numbers up to 10, Compare Numbers, Addition, Subtraction, Numbers beyond 10, Geometry & Measurements with multiple levels of learning within. Very easy and clear to follow
Questions a day – Number of questions -10-50, Frequency Daily or you can select individual days of the week or multiple days, set a reminder time via either notification or email
Prizes a day – 1-5 a day Frequency is the same as above, as is the reminder
Minutes a day – how many minutes a day from 5-35mins in 5 min increments
You can email reports weekly and back up on Cloud, set the music to off and adjust the Timezone
Very comprehensive information on getting the most from this app in easy to follow instructions.
What I noticed first was the bright coloured images, made of clay, so carefully put together – beautiful engaging graphics and clear simple instructions. Going through the activities, I found it very easy to use. The similar questions asked in many different ways to check understanding – just brilliant. The use of counters, blocks, equations, sorting colours, sizes, greater than, less than, so many wonderful questions, you can see that a lot of time and thought has gone into the preparation of educational content. After you have completed a number of activities you are rewarded with a ‘feature’ for your own Jungle, you get to either pick a type of tree or an animal. The animals (oh and their names are just gorgeous) do a variety of activities – they are just so much fun – a real highlight.
Another feature I enjoyed about this app is if your child makes a mistake, it is highlight with a thin red line around the outside. Upon getting it correct it guides you through the question and the correct answer – reinforcing the learning just achieved
Even though this is a great Math app for Kindergarten children, preschoolers would benefit from it too! This app will remain on my iPad for a very long time.
Prequel to the successful Splash Math Series Grades 1 to 5 – Splash Math Kindergarten app allows kids to get started with Math practice in fun way. Ideal for kids 3-6 years in age, it’s a superb math game for kids in preschool and kindergarten.
