Give your child gift of Math this festive season, Kindergarten to Grade 5! *Discount and Review*

Splash Math is an award winning math program for kids of ages 5-10 which can be used both at homes and in schools. Splash Math has benefited over 9 million kids and has been used in over 50,000 classrooms. Available on iPads, Android tablets and web, Splash Math works across multiple platforms and devices.

Splash Math is an adaptive program. It personalizes math practice depending upon the child’s level of mastery and covers all math skills for all grades – Kindergarten through 5. Splash Math collects the practice data and shares analytical reports with the parents/teachers.

Splash Math combines the best of both worlds. For a child, Splash Math appears to be like a game which rewards on getting answers correct, keeping them engaged all the time. For a parent, Splash Math covers all necessary math skills for their grade levels and provides crucial insight on the child’s performance.


So, there is a limited access free version of the apps (both for elementary age level, and preschool ages) so we downloaded it and I had my oldest check it out. School can be rough for him. He’s a wiggly, easily distractable boy that definitely struggles. He’s also extremely bright and does well when focused. He gave this app two thumbs up. As a parent I also liked it. The problems were right on with what he is learning at school, he was excited with the reward system and it appeared to be very easy for him to follow (instruction wise). I would like to see long-term what it does for him, and how effectively it aids his math skills. But all in all, it seems like a great app. Pricing is affordable, especially if you are looking for just math help. It does one thing and does it well, sort of like Chick-Fil-A you know? There are other learning games out there, that also cost money, but they cost more because they are covering more areas of learning. So if math is where you need help this might be a good alternative for you.

Apps for Kids: Kids Academy Educational Apps

I love apps, I’m addicted.  Having an Iphone obviously feeds that habit, or created it.  I’m not really sure at this point. None the less, here we are.  With a huge amount of Apps out there you could spend days picking and choosing apps, trying to decide which one is a good one for your child. When I have the opportunity to check them out I make sure to share that with other moms; make a little dent in the mom to-do list.

Kid’s Academy is the creator of apps made just for the education of our little ones. These apps are highly rated, including being an Editor’s Favorite from Appysmarts, which has lots of great app reviews. The apps are available on IPhone/IPad, Adroid, as well as through Amazon and for Nook.

I was able to review their Kindergarten Learning app, Learn to Read and Write app and Kid’s Puzzles app.

All of the apps have wonderful colors and imagery.  An adorable dog and owl take the kids through mazes, rhyming words and their letters.  Kids learn to shape the letters in an easy and fun way. My two year old was able to navigate the app, with only minor instruction and assistance throughout.  They also kept the attention of my five year old. The large age range in an app is important for me.  Its something I typically look for before a) I’m cheap and can’t go around throwing money at apps – and frankly I don’t want to; and b) I’m not going to eat up all the room on my devices with stuff for my kids.  Not only do the apps have to be affordable, but accomplish a lot to be something I will download.  Even if its free, if it doesn’t meet the second criteria its not for me.

Kids Academy apps meet both requirements and I appreciate that.  You get a lot of bang for your buck in a free app; and if you are typically someone who looks to purchase educational apps for your kids, then Kids Academy provides you those at a relatively good price-point. It also keeps track of what your kids are doing and keeps you up to date on how they are doing as their playing.

These apps get a five out of five rating from me for a couple of reasons:
1) price is good -the paid version is affordable at $2.99, however you get a 
reasonable quality for the free version if that’s what you choose.
2) the sound is pleasant and not annoying – I can’t tell you how many apps I’ve deleted
because I cringe every time I hear them come on.
3) It is user friendly for a wide range of ages
4) the animation and colors used are fun and interactive for kids
