How I Use It
I would use this in a computer station for students who need to strengthen basic addition and subtraction facts. I would have printed tracking sheets so students can record the games and their "scores". I will recommend this to parents as a homework website that is FREE! For advanced students I would recommend that they are challenged by other higher level games.
My Take
Parents ask for learning games. I highly recommend this website as students must use math skills in order to "PLAY" the games. For example, K students have to "decompose" numbers to add. The Kitten addition game has students select what makes a number (9= 2-7, 8-1, 6-3). The repetition enforces and strengthens basic facts. Much better than drilling with flash cards!
