    Right now there are free iPhone, iPad apps of the Everyday Math Games available to download. I have a bunch on my phone and will use them with the kids. Just thought you might want to know! :)

    Just curious what you think of Everyday Math. I read a pretty negative article about it but I would like to have a balanced perspective if you care to respond. Thank you!

    Honestly I don't love it. I have been using it for the past 6 years but it's not my favorite. Like any program it has it's good points but I do not like how it jumps around each day. I am so programmed to teach to mastery and that's not what they plug.

    For lack of a better term... It's like math on crack. One day you're teaching time the next day you are teaching turn-around-facts.
