Prevent Summer Learning Loss: Math Games for the Kids, Tweens and Teens
What to do now that school is officially coming to an end (or perhaps already ended for some of you)? Well for us…learn of course. The summer learning loss is serious and real. So the kiddos don’t fall an entire grade level behind, or more (God forbid), we take a week off of learning after the last day of school. Then we are right back at reading, writing and arithmetic...and some social studies and science too. The kiddos are used to spending their summer days learning by now. Still, they whine and complain. And I ignore and pass out the work. My biggest issue in finding the kiddos summer work is not only finding the ‘good stuff’ but also having the time to surf through all the apps and websites. I am not a fan of worksheets –all the time. I like interactive games. Especially the ones that tally the kiddos results at the end to let me know how they did. And guess what? I found some!!
Finding interactive high school level math games is not always easy. Oftentimes they seem to be hidden under piles and piles of elementary and kindergarten activities. But never fear!! We found a great site that can help your high schooler get in all the math practice they need. Find interactive high school games like the one below.
Middle and Elementary:
These online games are wonderful. Not only do they allow your kiddos to review but they are common core aligned. Ask your child’s teacher what specific common core standard they need to work on, choose the grade level and standard and have them practice, practice, practice. Here's a sneak peek at what you can find...
When you use these online kindergarten games you may need to sit with your little genius. Or you can send this site to your kiddo’s summer camp, have them complete several assigned games and then ask the summer camp director or teacher to print out the results. Here is one game you can find below that works on the concept of most and least. This game is great because it gets more challenging as the game progresses!
