I will recommend a couple from each age range but as you can see when you visit with 30+ activities for kindergarten aged kids and over 200+ activities for 6th grade children — there is a lot to do and my best suggestion is checking it out with your children and working with them on areas they might need help in. With there being no ads on the site it makes it even easier to be sure your child is safe. The younger ones might have trouble navigating since once you are in a game you need to press MENU to get back to the main menu for their age. There are also written instructions rather than spoken so you will have to read to those who cannot read themselves yet.
This site is called Rainforest Maths because of all the animals featured on the site for the activities… iguanas, toucans, etc. make for a pleasant viewing experience while doing the activities. I cannot point directly to the activities since they are all simply at Rainforest Maths but I will list a few that I liked for each age group…
Shape Patterns — what shape comes next? My daughter loves these puzzles….
2D Shape Trace — Have your child trace the shapes — teaches shapes as well as mouse control
3D Shapes — Sort the 3D shapes
Position — Kids have to know their words and learn opposites; over versus under, outside/inside
Measurement in Length — Drag pictures to measure if they are longer than 1 meter or shorter and sort them….
Subtraction — there are MANY games under this heading to check out!
Probability/Chance — Many different graphics to choose from in how you want to play this activity — my son had to learn this in third grade so it is perfect for him
Multiplication — Many different ways to practice multiplication
Money — Great way for children to practice how many coins/dollars they will need to pay and to learn different denominations
Fractions/Decimals — MANY different activities here to choose from to strengthen skills in fractions and decimals
Balance — Balance both sides of the scale so the math equations are equal.
Data — Tons of different graphs so your child can learn how to read all different kinds.
Position — Not only can you work on reading maps but you can design your own map for a Rainforest resort!
Frogs Functions — Input and Output — make the equation as easy or as difficult as you want….
As mentioned there was no way for me to review ALL the activities on this site. There are many worthwhile activities to check out and to work with your child on. This is more fun than going over it on paper and gives great visuals to get the learning across. Rainforest Maths is a wonderful site and I am grateful to have found it!
