Really good start for an app. Just the kinds of questions kids need to consider. Would be even better if the problems could be read aloud.

These are the only apps you will need!!!

I teach autistic children who struggle with language. Happy Frog Apps are the only apps where the students are guided with “hints” to figure out why an answer might be incorrect-not just “a wrong or right” answer. I love the sequential steps Janine has so thoughtfully developed to make teaching concepts such as inferencing, getting the main idea and conquering word problems appealing to children who struggle with these concepts. Thank you Janine…… can’t wait for your next app!
