Fun and engaging while learning math!
This program is a great teaching tool. It allows students to work independently on skills and the teacher portion allows me to see what students are working on and if they are struggling with a particular concept. I like that students are able to see that they have made progress by the fish filling in but it would be helpful to have something more concrete or structured that they can see. I like that it has a variety of 1st grade concepts that tie to the common core. Students that are advanced are not necessarily challenged without buying the 2nd grade app. Overall it is a great app to work on 1st grade skills!
How I Use It
I use splash math in my 1st grade classroom as a center. Students are able to select the chapter that correlates with the lesson(s) that we have been working on. It reinforces what we have been learning in class. Students are engaged and love to apply their knowledge in another way.
