Teachley Came for a Visit!

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 9.34.10 PMRachel Labreque from the company Teachley came to visit the Kindergarten kids. Teachley has developed the apps Addimals and Mt. Multiplis. Addimals is the best addition skills app EVER! When using this app the students gain confidence while learning strategies to help them add basic math facts. The students get voice an choice to complete an addition problem. Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 9.36.50 PMIf the addition fact is 4+2=  the student may choose from four different skills to solve the problem. They may choose to count on,count all (break the numbers up and count single cubes 1,2,3,4,5,6 by touching each cube to see that 4+2=6) doubles and the tens option.  When choosing one of these options, not only are they solving the problem, they are learning life long math skills that will carry them through. One of my students favorites is when the number line practice is available. The problem 4+2= remains on the page and then a number line pops up on the bottom and the student has to use the number line to figure out the answer. If you have not heard of the is app please give it a try! If you register your class for individual 1:1 accounts you can track their data and get reports about their independent skill practice.
