Monster Squeeze

Monster Squeeze has been a lifesaver in our house!  Kids are arguing about who gets to choose a movie, have the first bath, or go on the swing?  Pull out the iPad, start this app and let an octopus sort it out for you! Best $1.99 I've ever spent! Along with the ability to decrease arguments, this app also introduces kids to number lines, the concepts of smaller/larger/higher/lower, and, for younger kids, it helps them learn the names of the numbers.

If you would like to download Monster Squeeze ($1.99, iPad/iPhone), please support Smart Apps for Special Needs by clicking on this button:




From iTunes:
"Players take turns finding the secret number on a number line. In each round, the monster designates a secret number on a number line. Players try to guess this number by clicking one of the numbers. If the number chosen is larger than the secret number, that number and all larger numbers on the number line are covered by the monster. If the number chosen is smaller than the secret number, that number and all smaller numbers on the number line are covered by the monster. Players take turns clicking numbers until one of them identifies the secret number and wins the round. There are a total of 5 rounds in a game.

Features of Monster Squeeze:
- 2 players (for extra practice, a single player can play as Player 1 and Player 2)
- 5 competitive rounds of play
- Practices number line concepts and comparisons of numbers
- Customizable number lines: available number lines from 1 to 10, 5 to 15, 10 to 20, 15 to 25, and 20 to 30"

Odd Socks Mummy has been tempted to pull out Monster Squeeze to work out whether it's her or Grumpy's turn to do the dishes - then she changes her mind and just makes Grumpy do it anyway!
