Marble Math Junior

E and I are in love with Marble Math Junior. It is a highly customizable app where users can practice skills from shape recognition and matching, counting money, telling time, ordinal numbers, identifying fractions, and addition, subtraction, and multiplication to 100. Each board lists a task at the top of the screen. Users must manipulate a marble through the maze while completing the task. The focus is, most certainly, on the task. Child can’t read well? No worries! The task can be read to you!

E is on the easy level, and at four, he is learning how to add quantities to sums of 10 and place ordinal numbers from least to greatest and vice versa. From an educators standpoint, I appreciate two things more than others: the focus on concepts not computation and the ability to enrich or remediate quickly and simply. How much would parents appreciate your effort to meet the needs of their individual child, especially with cutting edge technology? Use it in a center or small group, but definitely use it!
