Pick a trail and feed the gators on a math hike that is sure to challenge young minds and make them smile.

While you will only see addition problems in Calcugators, you may be surprised by just how many ways you will work with numbers. You will need to use all your math strategies: regrouping, counting on, making multiples of ten, subtraction and more. With four levels of difficulty, there is a challenge for just about any age.

The Bumble Storybook
by 9th Impact

A heart warming children’s story with clay characters and hand-made scenes. The Bumble is a beautiful rhyming story of a grumpy old Bumble and a carefree happy-go-lucky mouse.

This free book is a positive and uplifting story that will teach your kids that you can’t judge a book by its cover and that you see the inner goodness of people through their actions, not their external appearance.
