We don’t have many math apps on our iPads so I don’t know how good they are. I will be interested in reading the responses you get. The student iPads have Animal Math and Starfall Numbers apps. I think they are the free versions so there are some limitations.
Our district requires us to use iReady app (reading and math). They have to log in. It individualizes the “lessons” for students; however, our kindergarten team hasn’t felt that the diagnostics accurately reflects what our students know and can doespecially at the beginning of school. Some of our low students seem to be good guessers and some of our high students don’t even score at the beginning of K level.
We create our own math activities on the Seesaw app for our students to do.
I have heard that Khan Academy has an app for younger kids, but we don’t have it so I don’t know if it is appropriate for kindergarten.
Does your math program offer a technology component?
I am not sure, but the Teach Your Monster to Read website might also have a math app to go along with its reading app.
I used to do coding with my students, but haven’t done it in 2 years. I had Osmos games on my personal iPadNumber Tiles and Tangrams, and the coding game set Coding with Awbie that I would bring in for my kids to use. My students like the Coding Mouse and Bebots. There is a coding app called Scratch Jr.
What is the purpose of the apps? Are you looking for something for math center time? At K level, our students needs lots of hands on experiences and opportunities to explore and work with manipulatives to build number sense and to develop spatial awareness, logical thinking and problem solving. I have things like dominoes, decks of cards, pattern blocks/cards, Tangrams, gamesConnect Four…
I hope that I was able to help a little.
