I downloaded it immediately and in the following days set some kids who had their other work done to exploring it for me. They LOVED IT! I have been using it with kids in grades 3-8 who are fast finishers. I can also see myself using it down the road for kids who need more practice and/or intervention. It is a great app to challenge a third or fourth grader and is really good practice for grades 5 and up. There are some things that will challenge a fifth or sixth grader, but because there are so many levels and options, the kids love it.
The first three levels are available as a free app and the full version is now $1.99
Let's take a look at some screen shots
|Subtraction section also starts off easy. See how I could use parts and pieces of this app with younger children or those in need of intervention? It is also a great way to work on fluency.|
|This is from the Mixed section. A very different type of questions that gets kids thinking.|
|See how the subtraction section has gotten more difficult?|
|The powers section is great for seventh and eighth graders! A third grader might not get to this level or if they do select it will probably get 2 wrong very quickly and get put out of the level.|
|This is what the sign in screen looks like! You start off as a male or female farmer and work your way up to queen or king! The kids love the pictures of the characters as they move up in stars.|
