My kids LOVE the game Hungry Hippos. It is one of our favorite games to play when it's 'game time.' Since I like to look for ways to turn any game into an opportunity for learning, I came up with a simple 'upgrade' to include some math to this fast and fun game. The math focus in this 'upgraded' activity will be addition with multiple addends. This activity is ideal for math practice at home, math centers, or a game corner if you have in the classroom.
Sometimes learning math the traditional pen to paper way can feel a bit bleak. I remember the only time I felt motivated to do math was when it became a game. The gaming aspect encouraged me to keep practicing and persevering to the next level. With more practice I was able to recall answers faster and had a better understanding of the math question. To save you time this week, this blog post provides six fun online games to practice subtraction; and they are all free to play!
It's no secret that lots of practice makes perfect, but sometimes repetition can become boring. That's why games are such an awesome way to make learning fun. Whenever my kids are engaged, they learn so much more, as opposed to being forced to do that plain black and white drill to s-'kill' worksheet. Apart from creating resources, I am also constantly sourcing out other educational activities that are readily available and easily accessible on the Internet. There is an abundance of educational games that are free to play, ready to click and go. However, sometimes in the rush of the crazy teacher life, sourcing games of such educational value can be a stretch when time and stress levels reach high points. That's why, this week, I'm sharing with you a fun collection of free to play multiplication games that you can bookmark and have ready at your fingertips to assign to a student or your class. I'm pretty picky at the games I choose, there's lots of free stuff on the web, but I've weeded through them to share with you some of the best!
