Wow- this whole getting back to work business is exhausting isn't it? If you saw my FB post yesterday you saw that I said I hoped I would have my blog mojo back today.
After writing that last night I got to thinking.....I joined Weight Watchers on Sunday. I haven't had a glass of wine all week.....COULD WINE BE MY MOJO?!
Ha ha....I kid of course...I think.
I have high expectations for apps. I want them to be fun and educational. I don't want them to be too easy, but not so difficult that you get frustrated after five minutes. I HATE ads, but I'm willing to try the free lite version to see if I like it. I don't like complicated instructions because....seriously, who has time for that? And I like creativity! C'mon- we all do!
Well I found one app that I LOVE.
Drumroll please for my new favorite.....
This app is AWESOME! There are three different games in Math Doodles
All three games are great for developing number sense. Sums stacker gives students three numbers and several die. Students have to move the die around until they create the correct sum. Connect Sums is similar but students have to connect die that have the add up to the correct sum. *Unknown Square is tough!*
So I did a quick google search on the author and he has a website and another app called
Amazing for understanding key vocabulary like slide/translation, flip/reflection, turn/rotation and, of course, symmetry. It's a challenge!
The Carsten Studios website has demos of each app and sneak peaks of upcoming apps too!
The apps are $1.99 each, but worth every penny!
