Educational Online Games

Hello Madera Parents,

Hopefully you all enjoyed your Parent Teacher Conferences this week, and got some positive feedback on your child’s progress in class. Perhaps you’re feeling like you need to give your child a little extra push to get their brain moving in the right direction?

The Internet can be a wonderful resource for kids. Kids who are old enough to punch in a few letters on the keyboard can literally access the world. Just like any safety issue, it’s wise to monitor their computer time, and keep a close eye on their activities.

Below is a list of websites filled with great educational games. I compiled this list based off Madera teacher recommendations. These sites will also be linked to our own PTA website so you can access them regularly. All of these sites have different levels of play appropriate for all grade levels. An extra 20 minutes a day of math practice can make a big difference in their performance.
