Bedtime Math

Reviewed on 8/25/16

Add this app to your bedtime story routine for an easy way to let kids know that math is part of everyday life.  Every day (I mean, night) features a new topic with three related math challenges at different skill levels (wee ones, little kids, big kids).  There's also a really tricky challenge question under a cloud labelled "The Sky's the Limit" if all of the other questions feel too easy. The app does NOT include a "read-to-me" option which gives great incentive for parents and children to use this app together.  Parents read the introductory information to learn about a new topic, then kids can choose which level of question they'd like to answer.  The questions are never simple flashcards, but instead do a nice job of working a math question into a story-like scenario.  Click on the "Get the Answer" star to see the answer when you think you know what it is.  If you don't like the math challenge of the day, feel free to search for a different one--they are searchable by subject. Answering the questions doesn't take a lot of time, but if done daily, it builds those math skills and is a healthy habit to get into! Note: the app now includes both English AND Spanish language options!
