Get the app proven to teach addition to children!
“My kids like practicing addition on this fun app!”
“My 2-1/2 year old granddaughter gets the idea – What better way than to offer the concept of linear addition! It makes sense to a toddler, even! Instructional is easy to understand. Love this app!”
"I really liked this app for our 7-year-old daughter with special needs … With this app, she has finally started counting on her fingers, and even showed us at dinner tonight that 1 finger plus 1 finger equals 2 fingers. This was a big milestone for her.” iheartthisapp.com/kindergarten-addition-a-teaching-tool/

Kindergarten addition uses 8 different visual learning activities to teach and demonstrate addition in different ways so the student gains a deep and thorough understanding of addition. This makes the skill become inherent and builds a strong foundation for further math learning in the future. The eighth and final learning activity presents addition with no visual cues or hints so the parent or teacher can confirm the skill is mastered. There is a simple start screen easy enough for children that haven’t started reading yet, and there are visual narrated instructions to all the learning activities. There is a bonus mouse maze stage for kids and there are very detailed visual progress screens for parents or teachers to see how their kids are doing. This application has settings for speaking in either English or Spanish.
The learning activities included are …
- Frog Jump Number Line. A frog sits on a lily pad over the first number in the equation. The student then counts the number of jumps based on the second number of the equation. The number the frog lands on is the answer to the problem.
- Counting Fingers. Drawings of hands holding up the appropriate number of fingers based on the equation are displayed. The student counts the fingers to find the correct answer.
- Ruler Measuring. A ruler is shown on the left of the screen. The student slides pictures of differently-sized objects next to the ruler to see the combined measurement.
- Dice. Students count the dots on two dice.
- Horizontal and Vertical Math Match-Up. Students match a horizontally written math fact to a vertically written one. When the two equations match, the correct answer is shown on a number line.
- Block stacking. The student stacks color-coded blocks next to a number line. Once the blocks are stacked, the height of the blocks determines the answer.
- Object Counting. The student counts objects corresponding to the numbers in the equation on either side of an addition sign. As the student taps and counts the item, a number appears.
- Final Exam. The student has to solve a math problem without any visual aids from the previous models. Students must choose the answer from a field of 11 (0-10).

Great for kids with autism!
This app helped my daughter with autism master the basics of addition. She only mastered the games with other applications but the fundamental concept never stuck. Great app!
Loved this one! My daughter used it lots until she progressed beyond it. It helped her get quicker with her beginner math facts. Great use of time in the car or waiting at doctor appointments!
