Back to school shopping as a mom of all girls means we are in constant motion to find the cutest, the hippest, the brightest, and the sparkliest shoes, clothing, and gear stores have to offer. As a self-proclaimed “dress yourself to express yourself” mom, my girls often look like they spent some time in a Frozen-themed glitter factory. And most days, I don’t mind that. But this is the first year that everyone will be in some type of “school” (big kid school and preschool), and I feel like I need to step up my game in the back to school arena.

Every parent wants to keep their children motivated to learn; and we know that the best way to keep up that motivation is to be more involved in our children’s education. One of the more challenging subjects to keep kids motivated and excited about is math. While we can do our best to keep learning interesting by providing a variety of activities that can be done at a child’s own pace, it’s always great when we find tools that can supplement the process. Along comes SkyMath, an app that is helping children and their parents get what they want and need.
In a recent interview with Scott Hamilton, CEO of Circumventure Learning and developer of SkyMath, you will learn how this app is guiding kids towards a better understanding of math skills while also satisfying parent’s need to be more involved in their kid’s learning outside of the classroom.
