About Teachley Addimal Adventure

*Winner of Apple Design Award 2014* 

Parent’s Choice Award

Editor’s Choice Award – Children’s Technology Review 

What are people saying? 

“Teachley: Addimal Adventure is an excellent tool for teaching kids strategies they need to master single-digit addition.” – Common Sense Media

“Addimal Adventure is an exciting, new way to teach addition facts! There’s nothing else out there focused on teaching kids strategies.” -Sarah B., 1st grade teacher, NYC

About the game:

The sinister Professor Possum has destroyed the golden city of El Sumado and is building a robot set on destroying the world! Captain Memo and the Addimals have come to save the day, but they can’t do it alone. Help the Addimals win back the golden blocks and restore El Sumado to its former glory! 

Developed by former teachers and experts in children’s cognition and learning, Addimal Adventure is an engaging game that teaches addition. The Addimal characters model effective strategies for solving math facts. Children practice using these strategies during the tool round, while the speed round encourages memorization, providing hints as needed. 

Most addition apps focus on drill with digital worksheets and flashcards. In contrast, our app teaches effective math strategies and scaffolds learning to promote conceptual understanding and fact fluency.

Addimal Adventure is a great tool for teaching different ways to solve problems and for parents to support their children’s learning at home. 

Recommended Grades: K-2, 3-5 (intervention)

Meets Many Common Core, TEKS, and other State Math Standards. 

About Teachley: 

Founded by former teachers, Teachley uses cognitive science research to create apps that teach effective learning strategies and assess what kids know within engaging games.

About Finger Paint with Sounds

Explore touch with colour, sounds or music. An opportunity to finger paint without the mess! Finger Paint with Sounds offers a fun alternative to help children with special needs and others to practice their first interactions with a touch screen. Simply choose a colour and draw with music, fun sound effects or no sound at all.

Finger Paint with Sounds offers multi-touch and single-touch options. We suggest that single finger touch is better for some users with special needs as it reinforces finger pointing skills with a purpose rather than encouraging a random whole finger approach (may be difficult to un-learn). Using multi-touch gives a more obvious “cause and effect” activity for some.

Try turning off the sound and music to see if the child needs auditory feedback or if they can see and enjoy the visual feedback alone. 

• Choose single-touch to encourage finger pointing skills.

• Choose multi-touch for maximum cause and effect.

• Bright feedback for children with visual impairments.

• Save your best work to “Photos”.

• Choice of musical or sound-FX auditory feedback or none.

Hopster Saturday Club

Why we like it

Cartoon characters help kids identify a range of emotions. Although targeted towards preschool aged children, it may benefit older kids with difficulty identifying emotions. More about this app

QUICK LINKS
apps | printables | shop | subscribe

About Hopster Saturday Club for Kid

Understanding emotions can be a difficult concept for young kids to fully grasp, whether it’s their own feelings or the emotional state of others.

‘Hopster Saturday Club: Empathy’ is a fantastic game designed to develop kid’s fundamental social and emotional literacy skills. As they play the mini-games they will begin to recognize and understand different emotions and learn lots of new ‘feelings words’ to describe how they and the characters are feeling.

Developed with the support of EmpathyLab, a UK not-for-profit organization that inspires children to understand empathy and put it into action, the game builds on primary school activities designed to build real-life empathy skills.

Your child will learn to:

  • Recognize facial expressions
  • Use emotional vocabulary
  • Match feelings and expressions
  • Understand their own emotions
  • Feel and show empathy for others

Game features:

  • Match emotions to character expressions
  • Create your own expressions with Saturday Club characters
  • Keep track of feelings with the emotions calendar

With this game and Hopster’s Saturday Club show, we want to help promote overall emotional literacy in kids, so they can express how they feel and recognize feelings in others more readily.

‘Saturday Club’ is Hopster’s animated show that explores emotions & empathy for preschoolers. The cartoon follows the adventures of 4 friends – Tian, Jo, Suzie, Jamie – as they act out situations and put themselves in others’ shoes to better understand how others feel.

The importance of preschool kids learning empathy:

  • Children with a strong sense of empathy are more likely to be resilient, patient, and tolerant of difference
  • Make better decisions and are more likely to reject negative peer pressure and bullying
  • They develop strong social bonds with others
  • Linked to achieving success in school and beyond
