Listed below are two more websites with games that will help students practice academic skills. One of the great things about playing these types of games is that students are motivated to play and practice because the games are visually stimulating, and fun.
Learning multiplication at www.multiplication.com
If your child is learning the times tables, this is a good site for them to get lots of practice. There are more than fifty games to choose from which should appeal to students with varied interests. Some of the game titles are: Patty’s Paints, Math Models, Castle Quests, and Puny Pet Shop. The games allow the player to choose which multiplication facts or ‘fact family’ to focus on.
