My Story:
I love your site, and I work at a after school care program, and we have computer time. Last year, I had 4th and 5th grade, and I got them to answer questions, and after they get so many grains of rice, I let them play the other games they were allowed to play (some even continued playing after their grains were done, like they did 1,000s a day) And I know that doesn't make a huge difference, but I had 15 kids, and I made them do at least 200 grains of rice which leads to at least: 3,000. This happens in maybe 5 minutes!
My Problem:
This year I have kindergarten. And again I have about 15 children, the problem is, it still is the early in the year for all of my kids to know how to read, and I can't run around reading to them, they also know barely any math.
My Idea:
I know this will take a while to make, so I believe that you should make an elementary math, only subtraction and addition. I love to be able to help in whatever way is possible, and I have a busy schedule, so I would love for my children to get involved with this. I explain the cause and everything! And they get really excited and proud.
Thank you!
