When you decide to put it on maybe I can grade it if you put it back on

If you don't put it back on I will tell parents you are all ripped

Is It Any Good?

If kids are struggling with sequences or just need some extra practice, a solid drill program is a good tool to have, and while this tool is solid, it could use a few improvements. Though it's not the most fun way to practice math, it may be engaging enough that kids don't complain when it's time to get the work done. It would be more helpful if there was some sort of description for each level so parents could know what sequences were being drilled. Also, for kids who are still learning, some display of the sequences might be a better starting place than diving into drills. Less motivated kids will quickly learn that they can tap each of the three options without paying attention and obtain the correct answer without penalty. Each time kids complete a level, they're told that they've collected a certain number of "stamps," but there's no actual reward system in place for kids who complete levels. Overall, Sequences by Ibbleobble doesn't have all of the features parents might want, but it can get the job done.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
