If y'all aren't already aware of Lowe's Build and Grow events, you should really check them out. Lowe's sponsors free clinics for your kids to come and build a free wooden project. Next up on their schedule is a Turbo Taco Truck! How fun is that? Besides having a great time, your kids will get lots of other freebies to boot (an apron, a patch, goggles, and more).
Sign up early because these clinics fill up fast (Turbo fast)!
Bottom line: A fabulous math app for your special needs or young elementary-aged child. Since we first reviewed ToDo K-2 Math Practice, it has evolved to an app with a new name and even more math. The new ToDo Math is built on the same basic premise with math activities that can be completed in two different ways. Replacing the original timed math practice, there are now Missions for users to complete. Or, children can engage in free choice which allows them to select math activities as they wish.
If you do a search for articulation apps in the app store, you may be a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of apps that appear. Where do you start? Do you really need an articulation app? Is it really worth all that money? Which one do I get?! These were all the questions I asked myself when I got my first articulation app. I spent hours looking through the different apps at the time. I tried the free versions, looked at descriptions, and read all the reviews I could find. In the end, I finally just picked randomly and hoped that it worked out okay. The one thing I hated in my search was the fact that no one compared the different apps, or the same person did not review both apps. This has led me to a comparison review of three articulation apps: Articulation Station Pro, Articulate it! Pro, and ArtikPix — Full. These seemed to be the three most popular ones in my very scientific social media poll (Okay, it wasn’t scientific at all, but it did include other speech therapists!). That doesn’t mean other apps aren’t as good, but at the time of writing this, these were the top ones I had heard about.
Bottom Line: This app takes addition and subtraction practice far beyond just flashcards. The games are fun and great for problem-solving in math for first and second graders (suggested ages: 7-9 years old). The multiplayer games are a real strength, challenging and fun for even my husband and me (yes, we play math games for fun). FREE to try, in-app purchase of $2.99 for full access.
