How I Use It
I use this product as motivation for early finishers, to support number sense skills with my lower students, and everything in between. My class is extremely engaged in "feeding" the fish and their ability to add/subtract has improved, especially since students are able to set the level of difficulty based on their individual needs. This game game has also strengthened their confidence in their operational skills.
My Take
This app offers an engaging opportunity for students to practice their math facts. I like that the app is easy to set up and easy to use. Students can individually play the game with out teacher assistance. Students can even change their level of difficulty and speed to test their addition and subtraction skills. These skills are essential for developing number sense foundation skills on which to build further operational skills in later grades. In my classroom students use this app if they need extra practice or as a reward for finishing other work early.
