If there is one thing you can do to make your little one’s penchant for your gadgets work to your advantage, it is to fill it with apps and games that not only the children will enjoy playing over and over again, but are also fun and educational. One such apps is 10monkeys Math’s World. I was given the chance to sample it, I opted for the website version and immediately downloaded  it onto the computer so that Jared might be able to give it a go. I was skeptical at first knowing that my son would request for other games or site that he was familiar with, but I was really surprised when we were able to finish a number of exercises in one sitting and seeing my little one actually enjoying Math and getting the hang of counting numbers and counting in sequence which we have not really done before.

10Monkeys Math’s World in a nutshell

online resources for mums, tot schooling, reviews, other reviews

10Monkeys Math’s World is an educational site that will allow you to introduce the concept of counting and numbers to your smaller children at home. It is also a great tool for mums with school-aged children to practice counting at home and allow the kids to master number patterns, sequencing, and number familiarization.

The site is subdivided into 4 categories:

  • 0-10
  • 0-20
  • 0-100
  • 0-1,000
  • Geometry {in progress}

Each category is made up of different activities and exercises that will hone children’s Math skills. The different categories also made it very easy for mums to gauge and decide on the most appropriate ones to try or practice with their children, depending on the kids level of learning and skills. Exercises are suitable for children in Kindergarten and for those in Grades 1-3. Under each category, there are different activities on Number Recognition, Addition, Subtraction, Money and Text Problems that mums and children can try. Even teachers can use it for their class as the site also has a “School” format.

At the end of each activity, a child will be scored and shall also be awarded for finishing each exercise in a category. It is an added attraction as the little ones will surely be excited to finish each exercise knowing they will get to have a reward in the end. For mums and teachers, an evaluation tool is also available enabling us to assess our children’s progress as we go through the different exercises on the categories most appropriate for them.

Mum’s Two Cents

online resources for mums, tot schooling, reviews, other reviews

Math is my Achilles’ heel while studying and I know that part of it comes from my lack of interest in the subject. I also know that it can never be really that difficult if we will put much effort in studying and learning it, proof that I was able to pass all my Math subjects in College despite the odds! Well, passing Differential Equations sure is a big feat for someone who really dislike Math, right? That is why I would love for the little man to do away with the Math struggles and wanted him to develop a certain liking for numbers and counting early on in life. That is why 10Monkeys is really timely, as he has just shown keen interest in our Number poster {which I recently replaced as we originally have a 1-20 chart} and would be heard counting repeatedly with it as his guide. He has recently learned to count till 200 with only too few corrections and help from mum. So it was probably not surprising to see him jumping at the chance to count some more with the aid of the cute and lovable monkeys of 10Monkeys. We were able to finish a couple of activities in one sitting and I was really delighted that he picked up the concept of counting in sequence quite easily when we got to the part where he need to fill out number sequence in 2’s.

I love 10Monkeys Math’s World for a number of reasons:

  • the site is very easy for anyone to navigate with its user-friendly interface. You can even let bigger children do it on their own
  • the remarks from the monkeys at the end of each activity sure is a welcome treat and I remember how my little man’s face lit up when I told him the monkeys said he was great!
  • this is a very handy tool for any mums who would like to introduce numbers to their toddlers or for mums who would like to teach her little ones more Math when they come home from school
  • any child will love the site!
  • the Math exercises included are suitable for any child currently enrolled in the K-12 curriculum, in Kindergarten and Grades 1-3
  • the site provides a fun, easy and safe place for the children to practice Math

I give 10 Monkeys Math’s World :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: but do not just take my word for it, visit the 10Monkeys Math’s World Website to learn more about them and to try their activities now. Do not forget to follow them here, too:
