Weekend App Attack Linky! Week #5: Apps for Math

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! My husband and I just got back from a weekend spent with lots of close friends at Hocking Hills in Ohio.  Our cabin was beautiful and the weather was perfect for campfires, s’mores, and lots of laughter!  We went paddle boating, hiking, and slept in each morning. It was wonderful!  I also had the chance to finish a couple of great books that I started during spring break.  
Before I start this week’s App Attack linky, I want to say hello to all of my newest followers.  Thank you to everyone for entering my giveaway.  I’m so touched by all of your kind, sweet comments that you have left on my blog.  I so enjoy reading them and appreciate each and every one! 🙂  If you haven’t entered my giveaway yet, please click {HERE} to enter by this Friday for your chance to win one of three TpT gift certificates. 🙂 
This weekend’s App Attack focuses on math apps! 
My first app is one my kiddos L-O-V-E!  They beg to play it each day on the iPad.  I run my math block exactly like Daily 5.  My kiddos have a choice between Math by Myself, Math with Someone, or Math on Computer (and of course, I pick who is at Math with Teacher).  One of the choices for Math on Computer is the iPad and what my class calls “THE FISH GAME.”    This was the first app I introduced this year and they still can’t get enough of it! iPhone Screenshot 1
The real name for this app is First Grade Math: Splash Math.  There is a demo version you can download for Free.  The entire full version is $9.99.  I know that sounds like A LOT for an app but let me just tell you, it will last the entire school year – there is a ton of activities with 13 chapters and over 185 covered skills.  It is also aligned to Common Core – a true “plus!” I love it so much I have the 2nd grade version as well, to differentiate for my higher math students.

The next app I want to share is a FREE app that is called Telling Time Quiz.  It does not actually teach the students how to tell time but it is an awesome review game for them to practice!  I used this app twice in a whole class setting when we had a few minutes to spare at the end of our Daily Math block.  It has a timer on it and the kids love to see how many questions they can answer before the timer goes off.  You can also turn the timer off if you wish.

I hope you can find these apps helpful in your classroom or even with your own children for practice and review.  Remember, if you’d like to link up and share a great math app you’ve found this week, we’d love to hear about it! Just add a link to your blog post that shares a little about the app and why it’s one you love! 🙂 Don’t forget to link back to this post so that other’s can link, too.  Feel free to copy/paste the picture below into your post, as well.
