It is no secret that kids learn better when they get to learn AND play. It makes kids excited to practice skills they are learning and I think it helps them retain the information better. Everyone wants to do things when they are more fun. So when it comes to having kids practice math, it makes sense to use a fun game on an iPad or smartphone. That is where Zap Zap Kindergarten Math, from the makers of the popular Zap Zap Math app, comes in. You might recall that I recently wrote about how my 8-year old has become obsessed with Zap Zap Math this summer.
Zap Zap Kindergarten Math is a new app release that is geared toward younger kids. Please read on to learn more about the Zap Zap Math Kindergarten App, and thanks for taking the time to read this sponsored post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Most moms and dads worry about summer slide and we all want kids our kids to excel at math all year long. Workbooks might do the trick, but often times, workbooks will not hold the attention of kids for more than a few minutes because it feels like work. What you need is a program that helps the kids stay on track with their skills but isn’t something that becomes a battle. Zap Zap Kindergarten Math is a great learning tool for younger kids ages 3-6 because it makes learning fun.
Kids have fun learning with aliens who are enjoying a picnic together. The picnic gets interrupted when some of the friends get taken by a bad alien. Your child can help save their friends by completing the math games to get to them. How fun is that?!
Kids will drive their space ship to one of the planets. Once there, kids go from stage to stage completing math facts. Each math problem has fun animation with it, one level even includes Santa leaving stars to collect. After each stage is completed, kids unlock a treasure chest to receive a puzzle piece. Each level works on a different skill and have 5 levels to it, starting from very easy to show what to do to adding in a few tricky spots to keep the kids paying attention. Complete all the levels of one planet and fly off to another.
This math learning app is perfect for preschool or kindergarten prep. The app continually scales and tracks performance with each math problem, making it easy for parents to keep tabs on progress. Zap Zap Kindergarten Math is based on the Common Core syllabus. I personally am not a fan of Common Core. It confuses the heck out of me sometimes. However, it is what is being taught in schools throughout the U.S. so this app is very helpful in teaching Common Core math to both kids and parents alike.
The Zap Zap Kindergarten Math app is such a great early learning tool. I love that there is a way for kids to stay on top of their math skills that doesn’t seem like homework and doesn’t cause arguments about doing the practice. Kids will love Zap Zap Kindergarten Math so much, they will be asking you to play.
