Splash Math is now SplashLearn!

In 2011, we asked ourselves one simple question –

Learning how to play the piano is fun, so is learning how to play basketball or how to swim. Then why isn’t learning math fun?

Over the next 9 years, the answer to that question turned into the game-based learning program you know – Splash Math.

Since then, we’ve evolved to meet your needs and wants – thanks to all the parents and teachers who reached out and gave us their frank feedback. It has grown to be loved by 33 million kids and their parents around 150+ countries.

As we refined our program, we asked ourselves another question –

Shouldn’t learning other subjects be fun too?

That’s when we realized that we’ve grown beyond our name and our mission. We realized it was time to grow beyond math.

We are SplashLearn!

As you must have already noticed, we have a new logo and a name that gives us space to grow. SplashLearn is on its way to becoming a learning experience like no other. While we’ll continue making math fun, we’re adding many more thrilling things in the mix – loads of new games, exciting new worlds and characters and, above all, a completely redesigned learning experience children will love.

We’re growing bigger.

This means more subjects – we love how so many of you have been writing to us asking for a Splash English!

More grades – hello, PreKindergarten!

More platforms where you’ll be able to find us – like Android.

But, before we dive into this exciting phase, here are some wonderful milestones we can’t help but boast about.

What does this change for me?

If you’re a parent or teacher with an existing account on Splash Math, you can continue using your account just like before. You won’t need to download a new app, you can continue using the same app. The progress of your children or students will remain intact.

Teachers, you can continue to use SplashLearn in your class and set home assignments for your students in the same way. The change in name will not affect the parent’s experience or yours in any way.

Even though you’ll automatically be redirected from the old site to the new one, we do recommend that you bookmark our new website URL for a more seamless experience – splashlearn.com.

Math the Way Kids Love

Ice-creams, Ducks, Watermelons – Summer Math the Way Kids Love It

Summer is a fun time. It is synonymous with long-awaited family holidays, backyard picnics, poolside fun, Hollywood blockbusters, and just lazing around in the house. What is not to love when kids learn math with their favorite elements – Ice-creams, Ducks, and Watermelons.

While your 7- or 9-year old enjoy the summer fun, we are just a tad bit concerned about his increased screen time and learning loss during this time. Which is why we created the Summer Program that has been wildly popular among K-5 students in US.

Remember, kids who lack stimulating and substantial summer experiences could lose up to three months of learning from the previous school year. Summer vacations are a great time to help your kid make friends with math. That’s exactly what SplashLearn App does so intuitively.

Math the Way Kids Love

This year, SplashLearn is launching an expanded version of its annual summer program. It is designed to boost your kid’s confidence in math and keep her engaged through the sultry afternoons. The Summer Program is something children would love to get their hands on. You could sneak in some math practice without letting them know.

4 Summer School Teaching Ideas That Students Would Love

As teachers, you would be familiar with the reluctance that comes with the words – summer school. Students are eager to bid farewell to school, hoping they wouldn’t have to see the inside of a classroom for another two months at least.

However, what this means for teachers is a considerable amount of time spent during fall on recapitulating what was taught in the last grade. Research shows that teachers spend at least 6 weeks re-teaching previous grade’s material to bring students back to the level they were on when they went for summer break.

Summer Learning with Teachers

Of course, the logical solution to this problem is to keep students learning during the summer break, something that doesn’t go too well with students. Now, how do you do this in a way that brings smiles on your students’ faces? A summer camp that is equal parts learning and equal parts fun! We bring to you some really exciting and creative curriculum ideas that you can implement for your class this summer and see them smiling ear to ear when you mention summer school next year.

The Mechanics of Summer Learning Loss and Unique Solutions for Your Child

Ask any K-5 school teacher what are the two words they dread the most when they begin teaching a new class, chances are they’ll answer “summer slide”. More formally referred to as summer learning loss, the phenomenon has been studied extensively by many researchers, and the statistics are overwhelming. Math, in particular, is the most severely hit. Students on an average lose 2.5 to 3 months’ worth of math learning during the holidays. This essentially means that children spend about 6 weeks re-learning the concepts that they already studied the previous year.

To make matters worse, researchers have found that by the end of Grade 5, children who experience summer learning loss are, on an average, 18 months behind their peers. Naturally, the need to avoid this summer brain drain cannot be overemphasized.
