Eggy Subtract to 20 App
By Blake eLearning
Age Recommendation 6-9 years.
Once again Reading Eggs are dishing it out with another app. Eggy Subtract to 20 gets kids focusing on subtraction. I actually don’t know of another app that does this. Sure many have options where you can choose addition or subtraction, but the aim of this app is to get kids using only subtraction. I have found kids can tend avoid take away maths problems due to there increased difficulty, but Eggy Subtract has found a way to make it fun.
While the recommended age for Eggy Subtract is 4-7. I believe it is best in the hands of 6-9 year olds. I think there would be too many mistakes made with a younger child despite the differing levels, and feel it is important that you provide apps where the child can succeed alongside learning new skills.
Cartoon like animation in bright colours helps to keep kids engaged. Eggy subtract also uses the child’s sense of humour to keep their attention. The granny game had my kids laughing as too the Mashies at their weird and wonderful animal combinations.
Reading Eggs and Blake eLearning are known for their quality apps, and Eggy Subtract to 20 is no exception.
Requires iOS 4.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Optimized for iPhone 5.
