Teacher Review For Grandpa's Workshop

Great app for beginning math preschool skills, but can't adapt it for each learner.

How I Use It
This app was used as a center activity during math groups. Since it covers basic fractions, puzzles, and counting it was used for some of our lower groups because most of the tasks were things they could accomplish independently.
My Take
I gave this app a three because the students liked it, especially when they did well and got to give grandpa a high-five. However, some of the limitations with this app I felt were that you cannot plan out what students work on, it's pretty random what order the skills come in. Plus, it doesn't teach them anything explicitly, it's something that can only be used as a practice.
