My Take

My students love the games provided on this website. I am constantly looking for ways to increase their math accuracy and speed (they are in second grade and really need the extra help to get away from finger counting). After using this website for an extension to one of my math lessons, my students asked me when we were going to have math class...and I said we already had math class when we went to the math games website. They then told me I tricked them into doing math and that wanted to do the same thing tomorrow. So, I love this site as a teaching aid.
Other than guided activities I use this as a fun center for math. Students can go to the website and play games that fit where they are in their math activities. I do wish it was a little less advertisements and a little more easily navigated by younger kids though.

How I Use It

My students used this as a math aid to strengthen basic math skills, comprehension, accuracy, and fluidity. This website is quick and easy. My students are able to pick the type of game they wanted to play that fit what we were doing. I do wish that they had easier links for younger children though. The top tabs that you navigate through are helpful but the site would work better for children if it were simply organized by grade levels.
