Math Playground:Math & Logic Games for Everyone!

Just a quick post today to share a site my kids have come to LOVE---Math Playground!  If you have seen or used this site before, you already know how wonderful it is. If you haven't, you will want to run on over to the Math Playground!

Here are just a FEW of my kids' favorites...

Number Bonds

Number Bonds is available in Make 10, 20, 30, and 40 versions!  We all know how important it is for students to have automaticity with making 10, and being fast is the name of this game.  I'm sure you will love playing this one as much as your kids--I do!

Kitten Match

Kitten Match allows kids to customize their kitten and play against three other kittens.  A sum flashes in the middle and the kids need to find two addends to equal the sum.  Fun, and it pays to be fast!

Cat Around Africa

Cat Around Africa is found in the Logic Games section of Math Playground.  Addicting!

Kangaroo Hop

Kangaroo Hop is a basic geometric shape/solid identification game.  It's a race for the finish!

Math Playground has games for as high as 7th grade, spanning a variety of concepts.  Your kids can pick and choose games to meet their needs.  I talk to my kids about picking a "good-fit" game, just like a good-fit book, because some of my kids want to pick the same game each time, and it may or may not be a game that is appropriate for their needs.  As with any game site, some games are better than others, but I am sure you will finds some great ones to introduce to your kids.

ALSO---Look for a post in the near future about our summer book study!  You will get a chance to vote for your favorite, and we will choose the book that gets the most votes.  Stop back soon!

All the best--
