We’ve only had our iPad for a week now, and already my homeschooled daughter and I are reaping the benefits thanks to so many of the cool, educational games we’ve discovered. Some of which, like Math Bingo, can be a fantastic addition to what can be a pretty one dimensional curriculum.
Homeschooler or not, I’m finding Math Bingo
to be a creative and
interactive way to help your kids enjoy doing math drills. Once your kiddo enters her name and chooses an avatar, level, and skill,
she’s asked to complete simple (or challenging) math equations. Answers are
scattered around a Bingo board, with correct ones marked with a “Bingo
Bug.” And yes, you guessed it – five in row scores them a BINGO!
earning them a bingo bug or two depending on speed.
Kids can use the odd looking bugs to play a fun mini game or
shake and move around in their “cage” – something my almost four year-old son
is now completely obsessed with.
I love that my daughter is adequately challenged, and even while a little frustrated by the easy level, she remains extremely motivated
to earn those darn bugs. And best of all, this $.99 game really keeps her entertained, all while she’s doing the very math work she dreads on a daily basis. Bingo! -Kristen
