The setting is a country style house surrounded by nature and on a full moon night.

Your child chooses 1 of 9 nocturnal animals.

Then they select a number between 1 and 9 to begin.

Moonlight Hide and Seek will hide some of the selected animals and keep some of them visible. Your child will use math skills to figure out how many are hidden, to add up to their selected number. The player then picks a new night animal and a new number. In the end the moon sets, and the animals fly and skitter away, leaving 0 animals in the yard.

Along the way, fun facts about how the animals live at night, what they eat, even how they sound, are all part of the experience.

This app will help students master the following Common Core Math Standards:

Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).

When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.

Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.

Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.

Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract (Associative property of addition.)

Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers.

Visually beautiful story/math practice


The first thing you notice about this app is the beautiful artwork that engages the young player/reader and draws them into a game of hide and seek (and subtraction practice) with a rotating mix of adorable nocturnal animals. Kids get a different math challenge every time they choose a new combination of animal and number in this fun and educational hide and seek app.

Engaging math tool


I think this is a clever app that my daughter (4 years old) doesn't get bored with. She chooses the animals, the numbers, etc so it changes each time. It's a great supplemental math tool using a beautifully told story and pictures. I appreciate the artwork.

Great app!


Moonlight Hide and Seek is a fun app to learn subtraction in a visual way. Really engages my grandsons who are 4 and 6. The 4 year old is just learning to subtract and moves around the animals and listens to the narration while my 6 year old is practicing to read and subtract.
