Let theGames Begin!
A comprehensive MATH practice game for your Kindergartener. ALL topics outlined in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Math at the Kindergarten level are covered in this one app.
NUMBERS and GEOMETRY.
Players can check their answers at ANY time - just slide out the answer puzzle tab!
Whimsically drawn animals create a jovial and motivating environment in which to practice math. And MATH is the primary activity in this app! Your child will engage in a variety of content each time he or she plays theGames.
theGames series of apps showcases a unique multiple-choice game-play that allows the player to self-check his or her answers.
When you slide out the answer puzzle tab, check to see if the puzzle pieces are in the right place. If the animal puzzle looks jumbled, that shows that there are some wrong answers. Tap the mis-placed pieces to send them back to the game. The answer you were looking for will be available again. Keep on playing! How many colorful photos can you collect in your gallery?
This format encourages delayed gratification and critical thinking skills such as strategic competence, adaptive reasoning, spatial reasoning and a sense of independence. All excellent life-learning skills.

I just love this app for the wonderful variety of math concepts covered. There is no chance for the preK/K child to get bored with the lovely graphics and variety of math applications that change with each screen. We were never bothered by any in-app purchases! All areas of the Common Core are addressed! So much fun!
I’m impressed at how many different types of questions this app covers. It’s not just a number learning or addition app - really helpful for my kindergartener to practice what she is learning at school. It feels happy too - I appreciate the artistic style. I hope the developers make more apps as my kid gets older!
great practice app for PreK/K
This is a VERY comprehensive practice app that works on tons of different concepts at the preK/K level. Graphics are very simple. Visual instructions are in picture form on side of game so they are easy to follow. Up to 4 players. Follows the math K common core standards. Very well done. No IAPs or ads.
