How I Use It
The site allows you to filter your games search by skills (e.g., addition, counting, data analysis, measurement, patterns, numbers, shapes, letters, words, etc.), age level (3-5 or 6-8), device (mobile, tablet, interactive whiteboard, augmented reality or online) , or show (Curious George, Sid the Science Kid, Fizzy’s Lunch Lab, The Cat in the Hat, and The Electric Company).
My Take
This is a good site that can be used when students have choice in self-exploration or choosing sites to reinforce learning. Some of the games work well on interactive whiteboards for small group or whole group instruction. The skills listed are: Addition, Counting, Data Analysis, Deductive Reasoning, Fractions, Geometry, Grouping, Letters, Measurement, Money, Multiplication, Numbers, Patterns, Shapes, Sorting and Classifying, Spatial Sense, Storytelling, Subtraction, Vocabulary, Words, and Writing
