Math Manimals or, as my son likes to call it, “The REALLY fun math app” is the perfect way for your kids to learn and practice their math facts. Whether it’s addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, your child will be begging you to do their math. Teachers and Parents alike should definitely check out this app!
To play this app, you must first select the flying creature you will be playing with. There are various birds, dragons, and even a flying hamburger! Next, choose which math function you want to practice and the difficulty level you want to play. An equation will appear on the screen as your creature flies along and your job is to control it with your finger so that it flies into the correct answer for your equation. However, there are obstacles in the path to the answer that you must maneuver around or your turn is over. Additionally, if you fly into the wrong answer the turn ends. Correct answers are rewarded with stars that your child can use to unlock more creatures to play with!
Ever since I downloaded this app last week, my kids have been fighting over my phone for their turn to play Math Manimals. My 3rd grader has been using it to practice his multiplication and he is just starting to learn division and loves practicing with this app! He couldn’t wait to go to school and tell his teacher all about the app so that other kids in his class could use it too. My kindergartener plays the addition games and I have actually seen him learning his math facts! At first he was asking me for the answers for nearly every question but today he only asked me a few. And my 5th grader wants to play it not because she needs to practice, but just because it’s so fun! I am not exaggerating when I say that my kids are pretty much obsessed with this app, and I am 100% A-Okay with that!
