There are so many fun things to share in the park! Shake apples out of the tree and share them among Gracie and her friends, divide up pie to share with the birds, and give dancing kids the same number of hula hoops. Check out the Gracie & Friends Park Play app, now available in the Apple App Store!
Gracie & Friends Breakfast Time is now available in the App Store!
Children make fair shares of waffles, pancakes, watermelon and berries for Gracie and her friends as they learn to equipartion – or equally share – collections of objects and whole objects. Who knew math could be so yummy?
Grab a friend and try out the latest collaborative game from First 8 Studios!
Gracie & Friends Photo Friends is now available in the Apple App Store!
With the launch of four apps focused on subitizing (instantly recognizing how many there are of something), Gracie and Friends is proud to announce the first of four apps that help preschoolers develop their skills in equipartitioning! Equipartitioning is equal sharing a collection of objects or a whole object by dividing it into equal groups or portions.
Lemonade Stand, now released and available for download through the Apple App Store, invites children to create equivalent cups of lemonade for customers in 20 increasingly tricky levels of gameplay. They slide ice cubes around a table and into cups by tipping and tilting the iPad! Every cup needs the same number of ice cubes, but not any lady bugs! Can you make similar servings at your Lemonade Stand? Try it out and see!

Next Generation Preschool Math will provide an example of what research and public media are doing for early learning through digital media at the New America Foundation’s event “Beyond Screen Time: Early Learning and Digital Media.”
The event itself is an “afternoon of moderated discussion, innovative exhibits and networking that explore a world beyond ‘screen time,’ recognizing technology as more than an electronic babysitter and pushing for high standards in how it is used.”
Check out the Beyond Screen Time video!
This child is playing our Lemonade Stand game for the first time. This was a HIGHLY debated game mechanic – using the accelerometer – kids lifting and shaking the tablet not only caused concern about damage but also that the mental energy consumed by learning the game mechanics would displace mathematical thinking. The “cognitive load” of learning and switching between multiple advanced game mechanics does not appear to be getting the way of his math learning.
