Lakeshore Bubble Pop Math Game



I allowed my daughter some fun games on the computer or tablet before but now it's time to start thinking about more educational games and fun ways to learn using the technology we have.  Thank you Lakeshore for providing me with a copy of the Bubble Pop Math game to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.

Game Description ages 6+:
Students race to solve skill-building math problems in 4 different categories by popping bubbles that show the correct answers—before they splash into the pond! To play the excitement-filled game, kids choose a category & subskill from the menu…then pop the correct bubbles to build addition, subtraction, money & time skills! Kids earn points to progress through 8 levels of play, and with each level they unlock, the challenge increases—along with the fun! Best of all, the game lets you create & save a profile for every student in your class, so kids can stop & start whenever they want—and teachers can check kids’ skills & scores anytime! Software includes printable assessments & personalized reports. Compatible with Windows operating systems, as well as Mac OS X 10.6 and higher.

Game Description ages 9+
Students race to solve skill-building math problems in 4 different categories by popping bubbles that show the correct answers—before they splash into the pond! To play the excitement-filled game, kids choose a category & subskill from the menu…then pop the correct bubbles to build essential math skills—from multiplication & division to rounding & fractions! Kids earn points to progress through 8 levels of play, and with each level they unlock, the challenge increases—along with the fun! Best of all, the game lets you create & save a profile for every student in your class, so kids can stop & start whenever they want—and teachers can check kids’ skills & scores anytime!

I received two copies of the Bubble Pop math game, one for ages 6+ and the other 9+.  As soon as I downloaded them my daughter was excited to play.  I got excited to start some addition with her and I grabbed our manipulative counting bears to help.  My daughter is 5 and the suggested age of 6 is right on.  Since the games have a timing mechanism the child needs to know how to already do addition, subtraction, time, and money.   I thought getting this age would be good since my daughter knows how to count and do basic addition, but the bubbles fall and the time goes quickly for my daughter to use counting bears.  So that was my mistake on thinking I should challenge my daughter because I think the challenge was way to hard!

I could tell how students would have fun and want to keep improving because it truly is a race, a race to get the right number before it disappears and to get more answers right before the time ends.  

These two games are great games to practice the skills that children in those age groups need to master.  My favorite  aspect that is perfect for a parent or a teacher is the documentation to view the student progress.  What a great way to set goals for your child or student in your classroom and then to see the improvement over time.   




Overall these computer math games will help any student practice math skills! Go order your Bubble Pop today!

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
