In Breakfast Time, children slice up waffles, pancakes, and watermelon and make bowls of yogurt with berries for Gracie and her friends! Everyone should get the same amount to eat. What a fresh and friendly morning meal! This game provides a fun way for children to equipartition. Equipartitioning is dividing a collection of objects into equal groups or a continuous whole into equal parts. It is an important skill that helps build children's understanding of fractions, ratios, division, multiplication, number sense, and number composition.
Breakfast Time is part of the four-game equipartitioning suite from Early Math with Gracie & Friends, a first-of-its-kind mobile app brand based in early learning sciences, rigorously researched and developed specifically for preschool classroom use. A randomized control trial demonstrated significant learning gains in children who used the Early Math with Gracie & Friends apps.
Early Math with Gracie & Friends is not just apps! Our research shows the importance of engaging learners in hands-on, non-digital play. In fact, for every Gracie & Friends app, we have created and researched around five hands-on activities! Find the entire curriculum in our online Teacher's Guide.
