You’d think that with a husband who is earning a PhD in Mathematics Education our kids would all be budding math geniuses.

But, that’s not the case…

And it’s not because I hate math or wasn’t good at math in school. I, too, enjoyed math and did fairly well in the subject.

Teaching it to our kids in our homeschool has been slow going though.

In order to give my now preschooler a little advantage and practice with some basic math concepts like number recognition, plus and minus, shapes, and measurements, I’ve been looking into some apps for him to play during our school hours.

Zap Zap Kindergarten Math App Review

I was recently invited to try out the Zap Zap Kindergarten Math app and write this review. It’s Zap Zap Math‘s newest release.

What I like about this app is that it is fun for my son to play. The games are short and straight-forward so he doesn’t get frustrated and give up along the way. Instead, he builds confidence in his math abilities!Zap Zap Kindergarten Math App Review Screenshots

I also really like that each learning concept – number recognition, plus and minus, shapes and measurement – are their own module, offering training, accuracy, speed, and a mission to complete. Each of those really helps your child grow proficient in math.

The Zap Zap Math Kindergarten takes through a series of fun math puzzles that mirror the US Common Core.

You can monitor your child’s performance and progress as well to see what they may not be understanding quite yet.Zap Zap Math Kindergarten Parent Portal

The only things I didn’t love was the repetitive music and that the app didn’t have audio instructions. The volume can be turned down though or headphone put in thankfully.

This app is $2.99 and is available through both the App Store and Google Play. Try it out with your preschooler or Kindergartener!

Of course, I’ll still work with my son to explain all of these concepts with real objects and other learning activities, but it’s a pretty fun app for him to play on to pass the time!

What are some apps you’ve used to help teach math to your kids?
