Math Bingo is an educational math app for kids ages 5-12. This app can help your child learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide using the simple game of Bingo. Students can choose a level and are presented with 25 questions to answer as quickly as possible. When they get the answer correct, the square fills with a cute alien. These are timed reviews but the timer runs out only when they finish all the problems so there is no stress to get them all done before time is up. Then they can be encouraged to beat their time on the next try.
Word Wizard is an engaging way to work on phonics and to study spelling with children. This app provides letters of the alphabet, which children can move together to be read out loud phonetically, allowing them to practice building simple words, sounds or even complex phrases or sentences. In addition, you can create quizzes using predefined spelling lists or using your own lists. You can also track the progress of your students with detailed reports.
