Online Math Games

Written by Donna Boucher

Donna has been a teacher, math instructional coach, interventionist, and curriculum coordinator. A frequent speaker at state and national conferences, she shares her love for math with a worldwide audience through her website, Math Coach’s Corner. Donna is also the co-author of Guided Math Workshop.

I wandered across another great resource for online learning–ABCya.  Here’s a summary from their website:

All children’s educational computer activities were created or approved by certified school teachers. All educational games are free and are modeled from primary grade lessons and enhanced to provide an interactive way for children to learn.

Grade level lessons incorporate areas such as math and language arts while introducing basic computer skills. Many of the kindergarten and first grade activities are equipped with sound to enhance understanding. Fun children’s Holiday activities are available in grade level sections!

In addition to the online games, ABCya also has apps for iPad, iPhone, and iPod, and it looks like they are developing apps for the Kindle Fire.

The games are organized by grade level.   When you click on a grade level, the games are organized  into groups such as Letters, Numbers, Holiday, etc.  The organization is designed to make it easy for children to use.
This game is 100 Number Chart.  Students click and drag to place the missing numbers.
There are three options for Base 10 Fun.  The picture shows Listen and Make.  Students hear a word and build it by dragging base-10 blocks.  Notice the number line across the bottom?
You’ll find Math Lines on the 3rd grade page.  Students choose a target number–the picture shows 20.  A ball comes out of the middle (see the 7?)  and you have to direct the ball to the number that, when combined with 7, makes 20.  Fabulous!!

There’s lots more, so you’ll want to get in there and explore.

    There are some great games on this website but it is very easy for kids to jump to a less beneficial game on this site when they use Google Classroom. There is nothing harmful about those games but they are not the skills we are targeting.

    ABC’ya is one of my favorites. Another one I’ve been using a lot lately is scootpad. It has a free portion and a subscription portion. My free 30 days is just about up and I think I’m going to spend the $4.99/month for the subscription. It ties into the CCS very well, kids can use it at home, and the reports are pretty good.
