Customer Reviews

Great app for teamwork

I use this app in a first grade class where I volunteer. We tried the the versus then decided we loved the team approach - trying to beat the clock. Like that there is an Honors board. I wish it could be reset without reinstalling the game. I love being able to reinforce what is being taught in class. The student love knowing they are doing second and third grade work but do not like the blizzards. Would love some updates in the game.


This app is awesome! I use it often in my class and the students love it!

Prefix Problems

Great concept and kids would love! It does have issues with prefix game ie: includes project and progress. "Ject" and "gress" are not root words. Look forward to the improved vocabulary.
