FREE For a limited time – Adding Apples from the creators of Subtracting Sardines. This educational app is geared for preschoolers/grades (K-1) and it meets Common Core Standards for kindergarten and first graders in the area of addition. Kids add (up to 18) using apples. The apples are displayed on a keyboard with domino-like keys – numbers on the left/pictures on the right. The child chooses an addition problem and the apples appear at the top of the screen. If a child chooses 6 + 7, 6 green apples appear then 7 yellow apples appear. As the child counts the apples to find the answer, they are wrapped in purple paper. Children earn gold coins as they work through the problems. This nicely done app helps kids understand the beginning concepts of addition.
Common Core Standards met:
- K.OA.2 – Add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
- 1.OA.6 – Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10.
