  1. Thanks for sharing these apps, I will definitely check it out. My daughter uses splash math for improving her math skills. Splash math is little bit pricey but this app have practice worksheet. This app covers entire 4th grade curriculum. It have space theme with an astronaut which keeps your child busy.
