We’d like to thank our sponsor for this week, Zap Zap Kindergarten Math.
It’s not always easy to tear your kids away from their tablets and make them do something edifying. Thankfully, Zap Zap Kindergarten Math relieves you of this task by turning mathematics into a fun touchscreen video game. Win win!
Aimed at children 3-6 years old, the app makes math fun by ‘gamifying’ it, turning simple mathematics problems into little challenges so that your pre-schooler can learn and play at the same time.
There are more than two dozen mini-games, split across three categories: Numbers, Shapes and Measurements, and Add and Subtract. According to the developer the difficulty of these puzzles is adaptive too, so kids of any ability can be both encouraged and challenged.
Hit the more link to read on or you can grab Zap Zap Kindergarten Math from Google Play or the App Store right now.
You start off flying a rocket around in space, bumping into asteroids and eventually landing on the themed planets. Then you work your way through the mini-games on that planet, unlocking them as you go, earning jigsaw pieces for your trouble.
It’s basically any mobile casual game from the last five years, except instead of guiding sweets into a monster’s mouth or dislodging some green pigs your child will spend her time composing shapes out of smaller shapes, comparing pairs of numbers, adding, subtracting, and much more.
The underlying educational mission of Zap Zap Kindergarten Math is underpinned by some serious credentials. Not only is it fully compliant with the US curriculum, but it comes with an online tracking and monitoring function for parents and educators.
It’s no wonder, then, that Zap Zap Kindergarten Math has scooped a Smart Media Academics’ Choice award, among others, and a perfect five-star user rating on Google Play and the App Store.
Best of all, there are no intrusive, inappropriate in-app purchases or ads. Once you buy the app you’re all set.
