Trudy Goes to the Beach

Trudy is taking a beach trip with her family. Can she make expected choices when her sensory system is overloaded and she’s on a different schedule? What if things don’t go her way? She needs your help to make smart and safe choices!

Casey's Big Day

Casey’s Big Day

Casey has many worries and frustrations on his first day of 5th grade. He will need your help to keep his body in control, keep thoughts inside his head, and keep his cool as he navigates his day in class, in the cafeteria, and on the playground. You can do it, Casey!

DESCRIPTION
With storysmart™, our innovative suite of animated story apps, your child can learn important social language skills. Blending clinical expertise with clutter-free design to create an engaging platform which focuses on social expectations, storysmart™ apps were developed by a husband and wife team who have a daughter with high-functioning autism. The combined passions of an experienced speech language pathologist and an award-winning designer come together to support communication skills for this ever-growing population of children.

USE YOUR SOCIAL SMARTS!
storysmart™ users engage in a real-life story — a day in the life of our quirky, adorable characters, but they have to help our characters solve problems, comprehend the setting, and use their social smarts to resolve the story and get positive feedback. The primary goal of the storysmart™ apps is to raise the user’s awareness of social expectations and to stimulate critical thinking skills to achieve the best outcomes in those settings.

“Finally, there’s an app that helps children with HFA learn about social expectations! The founders of rubycube have perfectly blended design geared towards visual thinkers and clinical expertise to create a solid product that addresses the core deficit of children on the spectrum.”
Dr. Gary Mesibov – Former Director TEACCH, UNC Chapel Hill

App features:
– PERSONALIZED AUDIO FEEDBACK
Users’ own sounds are played as feedback after each choice is made – both positive and negative. This provides a humorous and personal auditory reinforcement of the choices the user makes.

– MULTI-SENSORY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
storysmart™ presents a learning environment whereby the user can actively modify parts of the story – the character’s words, actions and behaviors – to correct what’s unexpected and achieve the best possible outcomes.

– MORE THAN ONE SOLUTION, JUST LIKE REAL LIFE
storysmart™ gives the user multiple paths by which they can appropriately resolve social situations instead of providing a single solution. Like real life, there is more than one way to achieve the expected outcome!

– ACTIONS, WORDS AND BEHAVIORS DEMONSTRATED
storysmart™ provides a variety of familiar social scenarios in which hundreds of unexpected choices occur, each one visually demonstrated to reinforce the consequences of those choices. As the user freely modifies each choice, the visuals change to reflect and provide context for the new choice. They can literally see the effects of their choices.

– RECORD YOUR OWN VOICE WHILE YOU READ
To aid with reading fluency, users can record their own voice while they read and then play it back to check their accuracy.

– NUANCED CHOICES HELP TO PROMPT CONTEXTUAL AWARENESS
storysmart™ provides a menu of phrases which the user can modify with existing phrases. Some phrases will seem appropriate, but may be out of context with that situation. The user needs to attend to contextual cues in order to interpret those choices and select one that best fits. The app also provides controls to adjust the level of challenge for the user.

– ENGAGING BUT NOT OVERSTIMULATING
Stories are accompanied by animated graphics which reinforce the context of each setting and are designed not to visually overwhelm the user. The music is designed to have a calming effect and to keep the user engaged in the activity.

– CLUTTER-FREE INTERFACE FOR VISUAL THINKERS
The storysmart™ interface is specifically designed to facilitate the learning experience by minimizing clutter on the screen. App controls and navigation can be hidden during use which enables the user to stay focused on the content.

What we’d love to see…

reinforcing the counting more in some games, changes to unlocking the puzzle pieces

Summary

A well-made, engaging app,  a great introduction to many essential early maths concepts. Recommended for toddlers and pre-school aged children.

Our Rating

Doodle Critter Math: Numbers Doodle Critter Math: Numbers is a universal app from NC iactionbook the developers of the Meet the Insects App Series. This app is aimed at children from 3-5 years old and works on basic concepts about numbers. It is child safe with no adverts or in-app purchases, external links are in a locked parent zone. The parent zone is accessed by answering multiplication questions and also allows adjustment of the music volume, switching sound effects on or off, and choosing between English and Korean language options.

There are 6 learning games, plus a set of puzzles which can be unlocked as a reward. Each game has tutorial available. The games are:

Read Numbers

Number shaped critters hang on the clothesline. When the child touches it the number appears on its own, the number is spoken, and the correct number of little critters jumps out of it. The little critters are interactive if the child taps on them – they might disappear or turn into numbers or change size; I’d love to see some counting reinforcement by hearing them being counted as the child taps them.

Write Numbers

The child learns to trace each number by following colored bubbles, arrows show the correct direction. Once they have completed it the right number of little critters appears in bubbles and they can release them by popping the bubbles. If the child goes outside the lines they can continue from where they went out- reducing frustration for young children.

Match the Pairs

This includes 3 activities. 1) Cards: matching pairs of cards where one shows a number and the other shows pictures of that many objects. 2) Trucks: the child can drive the digger truck over to scoop up the right number of legos to match the number on the truck (the lego groups are color-coded to help). 3) Hoopla: throwing colored rings over the matching colored stakes to count the rings. In this activity I would like the child to be able to tap on the objects to count them if they are having trouble, if you do this currently it gives a hint as to which is the match for it rather than helping the chid to count and solve it themselves.

Put Things in Order

This game involves playing with fridge magnets. The child has to put the magnets in the right order, working on concepts such as widest/ narrowest, longest/ shortest, biggest/ smallest and numerical order. The shadows of the magnets stay on the fridge to help the child get the order correct.

One More or Less

Two trains arrive pulling the same number of carriages, each with a critter inside. One train has a critter added or taken away and the child has to pick which of 3 numbers shows the number of critters in that train now. Once they have answered correctly the question and answer is shown as an equation e.g. 3-1=2.

Together or Take away

This introduces the concept that you can create a number by adding two other numbers together. Felt critters are getting on or off two buses, each bus has a set number of seats and the child moves the critters on or off. F0r instance 8 critters may be waiting, one bus has one seat, the other has seven seven seats, as the child puts them in their seats the numbers are counted both visually and verbally, and at the end it says “from eight you get one and seven”.

Jigsaw Puzzles

These are earned as a reward for playing the other games. Each of the other mini-games has 10 questions, completing all 10 questions earns 1 puzzle piece. each mini-game has its own puzzle with 10 pieces – you have to play each set of 10 questions 10 times to earn all the pieces for one puzzle. I think it would work better as an incentive if they could earn up to 10 puzzles pieces per game, but that they unlocked one puzzle at a time – so after playing 10 games from a variety of mini-games they would unlock a whole puzzle instead of having 1 or 2 pieces each for many puzzles.

This is a cute app for toddlers and preschoolers just becoming familiar with numbers and maths concepts. The illustrations are cute and kid-friendly, with imaginary animals and simple animations and interactivity. I appreciate the fact that is child-safe, and like the range of activities included. My children enjoyed playing with the app and liked the cute critters. The app itself was engaging enough to keep them playing with it, but I didn’t really feel the puzzles added much incentive. Our favorite games were the “Putting Things in Order” fridge magnets and the trucks and hoopla in “Match the Pairs.” I would like to see a few improvements made in future updates – reinforcing the counting more in the matching game and when playing with the critters in the read numbers game. However, even without these changes this is a well-made, engaging app, a great introduction to many essential early maths concepts. I would recommend it for toddlers and pre-school aged children, and those kindergarteners who need extra reinforcement of early maths skills.  This app is on an introductory sale at 99c and is a great deal at this price – snap it up today !

 Squeebles Times Tables 2 by KeyStage Fun- Review

Squeebles Times Tables 2 by KeyStage Fun- Review

Summary

Overall, a great app for practicing the times tables. I really like how customizable it is and that is uses humor, interactions and cute characters to make a repetitive task more engaging. My son really likes being able to practice without time pressure, and enjoys collecting (and reading about) the Squeebles and playing the bubble-ball.

Our Rating

Squeebles Times Tables 2Those lovable monsters the Squeebles are back again, this time working on multiplication. Squeebles Times Tables 2 is a universal app that includes six mini- games for working on the Times Tables and a reward game. The app is quite customizable so you can change the way the questions are presented to suit the child (and to fit with different teaching styles in different countries). It has data recording and allows multiple player profiles. It is child-friendly with no adverts, in-app purchases or external links.

The Maths Monster has kidnapped the Squeebles and stolen their bubble-ball equipment. By practicing their times tables the student can rescue Squeebles, earn turns playing bubble-ball and earn stars to buy more bubble-ball equipment.

iPhone Screenshot 2

The student practices their times tables in these mini-games:

Tables 1-12

The student picks one of the times tables and work on questions from it.

Mix it Up

Questions are from any of the tables tables from 1-12.

Tricky Tables

Here the student can work on questions they previously got wrong, once a question has been answered correctly 3x it leaves this area.

Fill The Gap

Questions are presented in the style of 3 x _ = 33 and they have to fill in the missing number.

Challenge Mode

There are six different levels to unlock each containing 5 challenges. They present a variety of challenges working on different groups of tables, setting different targets for number of questions right or no of correct answers in a row, and some also set a time limit.

Extreme Tables

The questions in this section are based on the 13, 14 and 15 x tables.

Bubble-ball

The reward game is fairly simple:  a Squeeble sits inside a bubble-ball, you tap him so he drops from a platform, when he hits the flip fish’s tail and you tap the tail to flip it as far as you can. Getting the timing of the second flip right involves some hand-eye co-ordination and practice to time it right. The bubble stones give different kinds of power-ups they can use to improve their best flips. The child can use stars they have earned to buy different flip fish and bubble balls – and they all have different characteristics. The reward system uses both predictable rewards (a gold star for each correct answer and bubble -ball attempts for answering a certain number of questions) and random rewards ( bubble stones for hitting various milestones that are not listed), I feel this works better than just using predictable rewards.

iPhone Screenshot 3

The times tables aren’t exactly thrilling stuff and learning them does require a lot of repetition, but  it is a really important foundation skill for learning more advanced mathematics. Squeebles Times Tables 2 livens up the task by using humor, cute characters and fun interactions. The Math Monster growls and grumbles every time the student gets a question right, so he is fun to beat. There are some hidden surprises too such as the Math Monsters flip-top head, which reveals moving gears and cogs inside. I really like how customizable the app is. You can decide if the child gets multiple choice questions or has to enter the answer themselves- in the US school system they often are given multiple choice questions, but I feel having to actually enter the answer is better for learning. You can have the extreme times tables left out from the tricky questions or included for a greater challenge, once they have mastered the 1-12x tables. It is also possible to lock which tables they get to work on – keeping it simpler for younger students or making sure older ones are fully challenged, and you can have the countdown timer on or off. The parent zone has an optional passcode lock and as well as adjusting the settings you can also view detailed statistics for all players for the previous 4 weeks.

I tested this app out with my nine-year-old son and he recommends it as a good way to work on the times tables, and especially likes the fact that you can do so without time pressure – there is an optional timer counting how long each round takes, but there is no time limit and no obvious penalty for being slow. There are some extra bubble stones to be earned for being fast but that is hidden from the child – you have to look on the website to find the time limits to earn them. He also likes having the bubble-ball game available for when he feels like a break.

Overall, a great app for practicing the times tables. I really like how customizable it is and that is uses humor, and cute characters to make practicing more engaging. My son really likes being able to practice without time pressure, and enjoys collecting (and reading about) the Squeebles and playing the bubble-ball. It has less fancy graphics and gameplay than some other multiplication apps on the market, but my son prefers its simpler style.

 Tic Toc Time: Break Down the Day to Learn How to Tell Time by Seven Academy – Review and Giveaway

Tic Toc Time: Break Down the Day to Learn How to Tell Time by Seven Academy – Review and Giveaway



Tic Toc Time

What we love…

A difficult concept broken down and taught in easy to understand lessons for children.

What we’d love to see…

Extension of lessons to teach the week, month and year. Ability to turn on both written and verbal instructions at the same time.

Summary

A superb app that teaches not only how to tell time but also the science of telling time through fun and interactive learning games, helping kids better understand the abstract concept of time.

Our Rating

Tic Toc Time logoOften we teach our kids how to tell time but we don’t consciously teach them how the clock came about and what does the time that they read off the clock mean. Similarly, there are many apps that teach time telling but probably none that can help you explain this abstract concept of time to kids.

New app Tic Toc Time by Seven Academy fills this gap perfectly with fun games and animated lessons (with the Beaver family) that will help your child better appreciate the clock as a tool for measuring time and understand why he needs to learn how to read time. There are a total of 6 learning sections in this app, each with 3 game levels (except the clock challenges which has 2) – The Compass, The Sun and The Shadow, Time from Space, Play with The Clock, The Clock Challenges and Bump the Clock.

20130904-235513.jpg
Before learning how to read the clock, kids are shown how a 24-hour day is related to the movements of the sun and the earth. It uses a compass to explain these movements while teaching kids how a compass works and how we use it to find our way. Next, kids learn about the sun and the shadow and how their positions tell the time of the day. They then journey into space to learn about daytime and nighttime and how our 24-hour day is organized into the 12-hour clock.

20130904-235544.jpg 20130905-010410.jpg
After setting the stage, the app teaches kids how to read time on a digital clock and then an analog clock, which you may find unusual. To learn to read an analog clock, kids need to understand the 2 number systems, namely 1-12 hours, 1-60 minutes (in blocks of 5) and it makes sense to teach the simpler digital clock before the analog clock.

20130904-235703.jpg 20130904-235731.jpg
In this section, kids learn to tell time through activities like putting the clock together, setting the hour and minute hands on an analog clock to the time on the digital clock in increasing levels of difficulty, learning the terms quarter past/to and half past and identifying the correct clock face.

20130904-235757.jpg 20130905-010444.jpg
The final section presents fun and challenging quizzes to reinforce what have been taught while the Bump the Clock challenge combines the reading of both the digital and analog clocks. Players’ scores are saved to encourage them to practice more and get higher scores. You can also register for a parent’s account to monitor your child’s progress (up to 40 children) in real time and let your child gain access to a Green Academy Montessori Garden where he can play and learn about the development of different plants and caring for the environment.

Other features:-
– 10 language options – English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Korean
– Choice of lessons delivered in 2 formats : audio or text (perfect for school use).
– Choice of 12- or 24-hour clock.
– Parents/educators dashboard.

20130904-235615.jpg 20130904-235631.jpg
This app offers so much more than the typical time-telling app, kids learn the Science behind time telling. Games are designed to allow kids to play and observe how the positions of the sun and shadow change in the course of a day, how the time of the day relates to the rotating earth, how our daily activities correspond to the time of the day, how the day is divided into AM and PM and how a 24-hour day is represented on a clock. Some of these concepts are difficult for kids to understand and for us to teach but the great visuals, interactive games and the easy-to-understand lessons in this app will help you teach them more easily and confidently. The games are not only educational but fun as well. As a bonus, kids earn water, sun and seeds for their Montessori Garden each time they complete a game. I especially like how Tic Toc Time always show the movement of the sun in all its lessons and games which reinforces the difference between AM and PM (5am is not the same as 5pm).

Tic Toc Time does such a wonderful job in showing the passage of time in a 24-hour day, I hope it can extend its coverage to the whole calendar – week, month and year in their future updates. The app recognizes the importance of introducing the concept of time and the clock before teaching how to tell time and this alone is reason enough for you to get the app. With superb graphics, cute beaver characters, unique games, motivating rewards and easy to understand lessons, it is the perfect app to supplement your child’s lessons on time-telling.

Tic Toc Time is available now at a special launch price of $2.99. The regular price will be $4.99 after September 19th.
