This week, I want to share with you Scholastic’s free app – Sushi Monster. This app offers students an opportunity to practice basic mathematical principles in a fun, engaging way. Essentially, students must select sushi labeled with numbers in order to create equations to feed a monster in the center of the screen. Different monsters represent different levels of difficulty, and students can move through 7 addition levels and 5 multiplication levels. Plus, students can replay each level an unlimited number of times with different numbers each time.

Sushi Monster is a great, engaging way to give students practice with their additional and multiplication skills. Plus, for those of you who are worried about it a game fitting into your curriculum, it is aligned with Common Core Standards (extend fact knowledge to support strategic reasoning and computational flexibility in addition and multiplication).

Here’s a couple screenshots to get a better idea of what the app looks like:
