Do you have a student that struggles with reading or just struggles at home practicing reading or math because they'd rather play outside, play video games, or anything BUT read? Well, there are some amazing FREE websites out there that are engaging and fun, yet still support learning and I'd love to share some of them with you!
Starfall - This site was designed to teach children to read with phonics. You will find games, songs, videos and resources to print. For those kindergartners and 1st graders my favorite are the #1 ABC's, and #2 Learn to Read. #3 It's Fun to Read and #4 I'm Reading are more for 1st grade and 2nd grade readers that need additional practice. There are also some choices for math support as well. I encourage to check this site out!
Knowledge Adventure - You can find FREE educational games for kids here! Knowledge Adventure's games for kids are a perfect combination of fun and learning. Search by grade level, age, or subject (math, reading, science, word games, spelling, animal, etc.). Games are arcade-like and very fun for kids.
Arcademics - this site does have a fee of $5.00 per year per student. There is a multitude of games in the following areas: shapes, counting, addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, integers, money, time, decimals, fractions, language arts, spelling, typing and geography. They do allow a small trial period before subscribing and I do recommend you try it. I've played some of the letter games with kindergartners and they had a blast!
