Games – Math Skills category
Are your kids or students tired of boring math skills repetition drills? Do you want them to have fun and learn and practice math at the same time?
Mindly Games is our Parent and Teacher Choice Awards premiere choice to engage kids and help them love math!
Once in a blue moon our Parent and Teacher Choice Awards Team finds a wonderful educational game site that makes learning and practicing math skills a whole lot of fun!
We feel that playing Mindly Games is both exciting and effective in a way that eliminates the boring and out of date repetition we see in most math programs.
Age Levels: Once inside Mindly Games subscription portal you have access to math skills by age, from kindergarten to third grade as well as selecting the math skills you want to teach and reinforce.
Skills include number sense, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, geometry in 2d and 3 d shapes,
Common Core Math Standards: Going into the program more deeply you’ll be comforted to find a full list of Common Core Math Standards that each skill relates to.
For example you’ll see this for adding and subtracting the number 10 or 100 to another number: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.B.8
Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100-900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100-900.
This makes Mindly Games a great fit for use in any classroom as well as at home.
The graphics and games inside Mindly Games are exceptional and their designers include folks from Nintendo and other well-known games.
These graphics are unique and colorful enough to engage any child. .
This is one example of what we saw by playing the Space Race inside the Mindly Games subscription portal.
First, you’ll clearly see the purpose of the game and the directions- “Building skills in two-digit addition by adding 10 more creates a solid foundation in the understanding of number sense. Select the correct answer to get your character moving at top speed to win the race through space.”
Next, under the game screen you’ll see the Common Core Math Standards: “CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.NBT.C.5
Given a two-digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used.”
In addition, each game shows the grade level and the skill listed at the top of the game.
Next, you choose your colorful character and then go to adding 10 to various numbers, choosing from a list of multiple-choice items.
When we got the item correct, the character flew faster than the others and when we clicked the wrong answer, our character slowed down until we selected the correct answer from a list of multiple-choice possibilities.
The music and graphics were really exciting and more than enough to sustain a child’s interest for hours on any math skill.
