Snowflake Station

“Snowflake Station” is developed by Mrs. Judd’s Games, LLC. It is normally $1.99 and is on sale for $0.99 for a limited time. It does not contain in-app purchases. It is only compatible with the iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later.

CUTTING SNOWFLAKES and UNFOLDING THE WORLD OF MATH!
Children of all ages love to cut snowflakes and discover the beauty of symmetry. We specifically designed this app to offer children a foundation for learning about symmetry, a key concept in math, science, art and architecture. Our charming, well organized desk is the perfect place to investigate this fascinating topic. Just point and draw on your paper to cut an interesting design.
Snowflake Station encourages children to fold, cut, plan, share, and animate falling snow with their own symmetrical designs. Winter settings and accompanying music add a bit of warmth on the chilliest of days. We have also added butterflies, robots, peacocks, daisies, hearts, stars and more, because exploring symmetry is intriguing and educational throughout the year. This app provides all the fun of classic seasonal crafts and classroom art/math projects, but with none of the mess. Everyday can be a snow day (or a butterfly day) at Snowflake Station.
Like all Mrs. Judd’s Games, there are No advertisements, No requests for payments, and No “freemium” upgrades in Snowflake Station
MENU OPTIONS:
-CREATION STATION: Choose desired number of folds, and color of paper, as you create your own symmetrical designs that can be continually altered and edited using tools.
-DESK TOOLS: Tape removes unwanted cuts, magnifying glass offers a closer look & saving.
-SAVE: The floppy disc icon not only saves, but creates a route to snowfall, framing or sending.
-TRACE A FLAKE: Select a shape and trace dotted lines for new ideas on symmetrical design.
-MAKE IT SNOW: Select a design to frame, create snowfall, save, or send with Juddly. Scroll through wintery backgrounds, snap a photo, or choose a background from your iPad gallery.
-JUDDLY: When first opening Snowflake Station, adults can choose to follow simple login prompts to set up a safe and secure email route so your child can send you heartfelt messages using Juddly, a one-way system designed for children to share creations with family. Once that set-up is in place, children just press the little Juddly character whenever they want to share.
ESPECIALLY FOR TEACHERS:
Our apps are designed to coordinate with US Common Core State Standards. Work and play with Snowflake Station ties directly to CCSS language listed below:
-(1.G.3) – Partition a shape into four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
-(4.G.3.) – Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
-Snowflake Station is only available for tablet-sized screens due to the beneficial impact this larger size has within the perceptual/motor aspect of this learning task.
-App saves student work that can be reviewed, framed, used as snowfall, or sent to families.
-Snowflake Station is optimal for student collaboration or individualized exploration.
I hope you enjoy Snowflake Station!
