Since we have received record amounts of snow, and it keeps coming, you are probably running out of tricks to keep
from going completely insane the kids from getting bored or stir crazy (or both!). The boys and I recently had the chance to try out an online site called Brainzy that offers games, worksheets, workbooks and activities in math and reading.
Brainzy is designed for children ages 3 to 7. The online games are fun and focus on age appropriate skills like counting by tens, telling time, ending sounds, and sight words. James (my first grader) really enjoyed the games and sound effects, and the activities align perfectly with what he is learning in school right now.
I love the reading and math worksheet generator, which allows you to insert your child’s spelling words, etc. and generate a crossword, word search, etc. There is also a section to generate common core content. There are over 300 games, 50 read along stories, and 50 songs and videos that help reinforce learning.
Two lucky readers will win a 12-month subscription to Brainzy–just follow the instructions in the Giveaway Tools Widget below:
