About Sushi Monster by Scholastic

Sushi Monster is a math app from Scholastic which provides a fun environment for students to practice their addition and multiplication skills by feeding the monster numbered plates of sushi, creating a number sentence to arrive at the monster's requested number. 

Teacher Review

The Sushi Monster app promises a fun way for children to learn math especially fast math. They promise seven levels, five multiplication levels and 14 target numbers per round in terms of the game. It also promises a very engaging and interacting setup and a pace that will increase students’ speed and accuracy when it comes to solving simple math problems. The app is a part of Scholastic’s series of educational apps for students and is targeted towards ages 9-11, according to iTunes.

Sushi Monster, a game from Scholastic, promises users the ability to practice, reinforce and extend math-fact fluency. Students can strengthen their reasoning strategies for whole-number addition and multiplication. The goal is to help the monsters make a target sum or product. 

Sushi Monster is a game created by the Scholastic educational team in which players must solve a series of addition and multiplication math problems.

Students feed their Sushi Monsters by correctly choosing two numbers that when added or multiplied result in the number that the monster wants to eat and if they choose the wrong sushi, and the monster throws a temper tantrum.

This app works perfectly and offers variety for different ability levels and also the students can pause the game and tap the question mark to find a helpful strategy hint for each level. It is not an app that will entertain a child for hours on end and it does not offer profiles for multiple children, and does not give detailed feedback on missed problems.

The Sushi Monster app is a great way for students to learn how to complete simple math problems in a very timely fashion. A plus with this app is that children using it will be motivated to complete the problems because the app enables you to earn rewards such as points, stars trophies and the challenge to best your previous score. Even for an adult it can be a bit addicting which can be both a good and bad quality when it comes to gaming apps.

Can I use it in the classroom? It doesn’t look like this might have much use in a classroom. However, if you really wanted to expand the use of this app, it’s possible to have students compete in teams to reach the highest score during a math lesson. It’s fun and would incite teamwork, healthy competition and also give students great math practice. If you want to incorporate the app in the classroom you most certainly will have to get a bit creative but it’s not impossible.
