Tyler Shows Off His New Raceway Multiplication Skills & How You Can Get All These Raceway Apps For FREE!

real logo hi resYou may have seen some pictures of my Grandson Tyler this past summer. He is now 7 years old and in second grade. He mentioned lately that, after his great summer vacation, his number skills needed a little working on. They were not what they were in June when school closed. Hey, it can happen to anyone!

TylerRacewayMath4x6So, we agreed that more practice with his addition skills would helpful. Tyler loves his iPad Mini, so we bought RE@L’s Raceway Math Addition game. His Math Number Fact Scores shot way up from all his practice. His highest score was 177 mph on his Raceway Addition skills!!!! 

Tyler Mr. Oppenheim 2To say his teacher was very proud of him is an understatement. Just look at Tyler and his teacher!

While, here we are, NOW, several months later, right in the midst of a holiday break for school kids. And guess what? Some of those number facts are starting to slide again. We call it the “winter slide” and it’s not for sledding.

Of course, once you learn something useful in school, they just give you another set of skills to learn: In addition to addition, primary kids need to know their subtraction number facts, and after that comes multiplication and division number facts. It never stops! But there’s good news!

RACEWAYNeither does the help stop either. RE@L is NOW offering, for FREE, all four Raceway Math games. That’s right! They are free between now and the end of 2014. Just click on the icons to the left to be taken to the free download page and start downloading.

Students can download them to practice at home and show parents that they are not just playing Angry Birds™ all the time during their break. They are learning something important too, and it should be recognized. A gold star should be placed on the back of their iPads. If they keep learning more, more stars will be needed. Soon their iPad will look like a Big 10 football helmet. Stars everywhere!

TylerrMultRacewayFor the next week ONLY, teachers, students, parents, anyone can download Raceway products for free! Get them all for the young learners you know. Get them now while the price is right. Kids will be grateful for a fun game that helps them learn, too.

So, Tyler now has moved on to his Multiplication facts. No more sliding for him. He still looks pretty confident to us that he will learn these new skills, don’t you think? Sure, Division Skills are next! But, Tyler already knows they are just the opposite of multiplication.

We’d be smiling too!
