I am not a big fan of kids on the computer, so you can guess my thoughts on remote teaching this semester! However, we are all learning to adjust in these pandemic times. There are, however, some great review and reinforcement learning games that will keep kids engaged and having fun. Check out the games that I listed below. They are teacher-created, and Grandchildren approved.
5 Great Learning Games
I have recommended this site in different posts, but it is worth the mention again. Games are organized by subject area and have many popular literature characters included. Who does not like Curious George or The Cat in the Hat?
Created for kids ages preschool through grade 8. Interactive games that develop skills in reading, math, and literacy.
Online educational video games in language arts, vocabulary, thinking skills and math. Repetitive, timed learning drills that give scores.
Greg Nussbaum, a teacher created the site with a wide variety of learning games that are organized by subject area and grade level. Although it looks like there are no games for preschoolers, there are! Filter to the lowest level. I found some alphabet games that are appropriate for kids as young as 2! Teachers it can be used on a tablet and is a great resource for interactive whiteboards.
Educational games and activities for elementary students (lower grades) to learn language arts and math. Teacher-created and recommended by New York Times.
Over 100 fun, engaging and interactive science games and quizzes.
Learning occurs in day to day activities. So, look for and create learning opportunities throughout your day. Stay safe and be well.
