Zap Zap Kindergarten Math app for learning numeracy and number recognition

Kindergarten Math Summer Learning Fun

I’m thrilled to partner with Zap Zap to announce their new Zap Zap Kindergarten Math app!Zap Zap Kindergarten Math app

It’s no secret that kids love playing games on their screens, and they will practice math facts if it’s presented in the form of a puzzle or game.

Zap Zap Kindergarten Math app for learning numeracy and number recognition

Zap Zap Kindergarten Math’s games are designed around the US Common Core standards, including numeracy skills such as number recognition, counting and comparing, and simple addition.

US Common Core Standards for Kindergarten:

In Kindergarten, instructional time should focus on two critical areas: (1) representing and comparing whole numbers, initially with sets of objects; (2) describing shapes and space.

Students use numbers, including written numerals, to represent quantities and to solve quantitative problems, such as counting objects in a set; counting out a given number of objects; comparing sets or numerals; and modeling simple joining and separating situations with sets of objects, or eventually with equations such as 5 + 2 = 7 and 7 – 2 = 5.

(Kindergarten students should see addition and subtraction equations, and student writing of equations in kindergarten is encouraged, but it is not required.)

Students choose, combine, and apply effective strategies for answering quantitative questions, including quickly recognizing the cardinalities of small sets of objects, counting and producing sets of given sizes, counting the number of objects in combined sets, or counting the number of objects that remain in a set after some are taken away.

  • Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.

Number and Operations in Base Ten

  • Work with numbers 11-19 to gain foundations for place value.

Measurement and Data

  • Describe and compare measurable attributes.
  • Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category

Geometry

  • Identify and describe shapes.
  • Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes.

Mathematical Practices

  1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

  1. I think math facts is one of the places where an app really makes sense.
