Gaming in education is a rapidly growing trend with lots of benefits for kids: high-quality games help children develop problem-solving, critical thinking, and creative thinking skills in a platform that is naturally engaging and motivating. 2. Sheppard Software has top-quality games for every subject spanning preschool through middle school.
If you like a particular game on GameUp, click the game developer’s icon on the game page to see their full list of offerings.
5. BBC UK features a kid-friendly landing page which makes learning look like all fun and games, or use the schools-games page which organizes activities by subject area. 6. Hooda Math is an up-and-coming site for gaming that also has a separate section for interactive whiteboard games. 7. GameStar Mechanic not only offers free games for students to play, but allows kids to make and publish their own games.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
The words of Andrew Breitbart kept speaking to me as I considered the next step in my writing career. This site reflects both what’s missing with online journalism as well as what works just fine, thank you. And when Hollywood takes a lazy swipe at paying customers, just because they have different views, we won’t be afraid to step up. As you start getting your kids ready to go back to school, take a look at a few of these websites to help keep them on track and ready to learn.

Basically, the UEN has done the hard work for you and pre-screened the sites so every game they link to is useful and developmentally appropriate. BrainPOP also lists corresponding movie topics you can play if you have a BrainPOP subscription, and provides a lesson plan (written by yours truly!) to show how you can integrate the game into your instruction. Most of the partners have a bunch of additional high-quality games on their sites that are available for free.
There are also some PDF worksheets for some of the games and some math tutorials for grades 3-7.
There are educational and just-for-fun games, which you can sort by subject area and skill. FunBrain makes the list because I see kids return to the site again and again even when they have the choice to play non-educational games. I work part-time for BrainPOP but was not asked to write this article or include their resources in it. As founder of Due Season Press and Educational Services, she has created printable curriculum resources, 4 books, 3 online courses, the Truth for Teachers podcast, and The 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club. Yeah, Spelling City is great…I think of that site as more interactive practice exercises but there are actually tons of really cool games.

I'm Angela Watson, a National Board Certified Teacher with 11 years of classroom experience. Andrew welcomed an open and feisty debate, and he championed those who wanted to use New Media to let their voices be heard. We’ll welcome liberal critics to sound off on the latest Hollywood content and engage in friendly, but impassioned, debates on the cultural matters of the day.

We respect the creative process, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like Hollywood is playing fair. There’s something for every subject and every grade, and the interface is attractive to kids and easy to use. There are ads on the site, so be sure to teach young students not to click on anything to the left or right of the game. What makes it worth mentioning here is the fact that it spans practically every math skill and concept from PreK-12 for free. This list reflects what I truly think are the THE best educational game websites for kids, and I regularly use them in schools with the teachers I coach. I currently work as an educational consultant and instructional coach based in Brooklyn, NY. When you finish reading one your gut will know whether you should waste your time on that movie, show or series.
I've reviewed this list of Ten Good Free Educational Websites to make sure it is current and added a couple new ones to boot. I created this site in 2003 because I love sharing practical classroom ideas and helping teachers build a positive mindset so they can truly enjoy their work. Our interviews will avoid fluff and ask tougher questions of the people who entertain us for a living.
