Three Apps Included
Magnificent Math Strategies Primary App Learning Bundle
I have taken three apps from Jump App: Cute Food, Puppet Workshop and Imagination Box and have used them to create a great lesson plan and a video tutorial to teach primary kids the joys of using Math Strategies through virtual means. Magnificent Math Strategies Primary App Learning Bundle will inspire your child’s inner Math skills.
My children get so thrilled when we are using the iPad to discover new and interesting things. This lesson is meant to stimulate and encourage exploration in Math.
The first app I discover in my video tutorial is Cute Food. This app is a great way of showing kids how they can add and subtract with using food. (Hopefully they don’t try this at home during dinner, and get in trouble by their Moms). This app allows the young users to drag and drop vegetables and fruit onto their virtual plate. By adding and subtracting different fruit and vegetable slices and pieces to the plate the teacher and the students can explore the world of Addition and Subtraction. The user can change the colour of the plate and the mat.
The second app I use in the video tutorial is that of the Puppet Workshop, this app is to discover how to create your own sock puppet. Add and subtract items onto or off the face of the sock puppet and use this as a canvas for Math strategies.
The third app I explore is that of Imagination Box and this one is specifically for doing Math strategies on a coloured canvas. The use of all three to add and subtract in a fun and exciting way will surely engage the kids.
These three apps are only available through Apple, however feel free to adapt this to any app either through Android or Apple. Below you can find the video tutorial hyperlink and the hyperlink to buy and look at all the apps.
To extend learning beyond the app, give your child or student an assignment to create their own real life sock puppet, explore with manipulatives and use clay to reproduce some of their work from the apps. These three apps will get any user laughing and learning about Addition and Subtraction, all at the same time!
