Yesterday, I told my 11 year old that I needed to find a good elementary math freebie to post, and he asked if I’ve posted about Arcademic Skill Builders. I have, but not in a while. He told me they have a bunch of new games since we went there last. The games are created especially for elementary ages, although I’d put my middle schooler or high schooler on here to brush up in a weak area! Do you remember Timez Attack, a fun video game that is no longer available (sadly) for homeschools and individuals? These arcade games are like Timez Attack; not quite as video-gamey, but just as fun and even more competitive. This one is a family favorite.
Arcademic Skill Builders are “online educational video games that offer a powerful approach to learning basic math, language arts, vocabulary, and thinking skills,” according to the site publishers.
Through video games and competition, students will practice concepts such as spelling and multiplication, among others. I played in a jet ski addition game against the “computer” as well as a racing car multiplication game. Other games include spelling, vowel and verb games, among others, for language arts and capitals and country games for geography.
The site holds safety above all: your child may create a username if as long as its a name the program considers safe, or use the name provided, but even if he or she decides to compete with others across the internet, he may not chat with the other users.
