Belly on up to the sushi bar for some fun math-fluency exercises. Your third through sixth graders will have a blast appeasing the angry sushi monster chef, as well as mastering their memorization of addition and multiplication sequences. 

Sushi Monster

Why we love it: The humorous games in this free app from Scholastic cover 12 carefully ordered levels—seven addition and five multiplication. Both speed and accuracy are encouraged, sneakily and engagingly promoting increased comfort and memorization of these important mathematical building blocks. We also appreciate that the app does not contain links to outside websites or share location information. 

Favorite features:

  • Sushi Monster is beneficial for a variety of grades and math levels. Whether a student is beginning to memorize addition sequences and multiplication tables or reinforcing his knowledge to build a strong base for division and beyond, he will find that these numeric nigiri whet the appetite. 
  • This tablet game can be played solo or cooperatively in groups, making it ideal for both independent learning and indoor recess collaborations. 

Best for: Grades 3 to 6

Find it: iTunes
