My FAVORITE 38 desktop math computer games!!!!

Each time our elementary students take a benchmark assessment, 
they do a graph that shows their strengths and weaknesses by specific 
learning standards.  Once students know their weaknesses, they can 
access resources to improve their understanding.  Here are 38 online 
computer games that students can use to practice skills to remediate 
weaknesses. I’ve put a thumbnail for each game so students and see if
it’s something they might be interested in.

The compilation of sites on this link, are some of my favorites.  I come
across games every day, so how do the games I view make my “faves” list?  
They have to be:
  • aligned with specific learning standards or reinforce skills that support standard(s)
  • so engaging that students will want to play them at home 
  • easy enough to use that students can access them on their own with little assistance and support
  • primarily used for remediation and reinforcement

Students can access these at home, when they have a few extra minutes in class, or even as a reward.   Thanks for letting me share.  What are some of your favorite sites for your student who need extra practice?  Please leave a comment.  I’d love to read about the games that work in your classroom!!!
