First Grade App
By Kevin Bradford
Age Recommendation 6-8 years.
Reading, spelling, maths, fractions, compound words, contractions and more. This app gives you 10 different types of educational games, more than the average educational app.
Super clear vibrant pictures make it a pleasure to play and the degree of difficulty is spot on. You can though manipulate the level by changing it from 1-5, even during the game. You can also increase difficulty for example in the bingo game as shown in the screenshot by creating 5×5 or 4×4 boxes.
Love the way this program does maths. It uses some bigger numbers, introduces counting by more than ones, and makes fractions simple for kids. It also gets kids to order a variety of ways such as number, both forwards and backwards counting, size and alphabetical order. Also love that the adding and subtracting section is separate to the counting section. As I said, love the maths element in this app.
One for the homework list in my house. Who would of thought homework could be so much fun.
