First Step Grade 1 Math

"First Step Grade 1 Math" is a free app that is for four to eight year olds. It has five different categories that consist of counting, addition, time, subtraction, and geometry. It includes more than 900 questions and more than 100 math skills that are aligned to common core standards. It has a zoo picnic theme that keeps children interested and motivated while learning new skills.

How it works: It's a fun app that gives the student coins for getting answers to math problems correct, which they can use to add more animals to their zoo and buy picnic items. They can also "visit the zoo" and interact with the animals and learn fun facts about them.

Love to Count by Pirate Trio

Love to Count by Priate Trio

Description: Love to Count by Priate Trio is educational app created for the IPhone, Ipad, and IPod Touch that can be purchased for just 3.99. It focuses on developing mathematical skills that center around addition.  As students interact with this app, they are given immediate feedback based upon their answers. In my classroom I would use this app as a center acitivity. Since teachers are able to set up accounts for each student individuallly, I would use this app to moniter my students progress.

How it works: Students engage in a variety of actions when working with Love to County by Priate Trio. They can be asked to split a pizza into a specific number, or they could be asked to count the number fish that was caught. During interaction with this app I believe that a stylus would be a helpful tool for students to use.
