Make Learning Fun With Free Online Math Games

Are you homeschooling your kids? 

Sponsored post

Things have drastically changed for many families in the past month. Most people are having to stay at home to help flatten the curve of a respiratory virus and for so many, that means kids are not going to school. That means parents are now left with the job of teaching their children and that can be adding to the stress of this pandemic virus outbreak.


 Many parents are also working from home so teaching their kids may be hard while they are trying to do their own work. While some parents are able to figure out how to best homeschool their children, many like myself are struggling with teaching their kids things like math. For the past couple of weeks, I have let my children just play on the computer and outside as I just am not able to work and homeschool at the same time. Even if I had time on my hands, I just don't feel like I am able to teach my kids and that has been leaving me with the mom guilt. Sure I have been searching online for math programs and encouraging my kids to read more. I even suggested that they write about their daily life, they were not happy about that. My kids just don't want their mom to be their teacher. So I put the idea of me homeschooling my kids out of my mind as I did not want to add any additional stress to our house. I am ok with not teaching my kids but I knew that my kids needed things to do and me allowing them way too much screen time was not the answer. I knew that their computer time needed some learning time. So I am glad that I discovered a website that has free online math games.

Make learning time fun with free online math games



 My boys are tweens and are independent learners. They were succeeding in school thanks to these school learning tips and I wanted to keep them learning while they are at home for the rest of the school year. So while I did allow my boys to be on the computer more, I also made sure that some of the computer time was allocated for learning time. One website that my boys are enjoying has plenty of fun math games that are teaching them math and refreshing their math skills. The best part for me is these math equation games are free and the games do not require email sign-ups or logins. Nor are the math games monetized with ads. These are the best educational games for kids.

Math games for all ages

 I love that the website that has math games has games that teach all ages. So my boys spent their screen time learning addition, division, multiplication, and subtraction at a level for their grade. There were plenty of games to keep my boys engaged in math learning. Each of the different games had a star difficulty rating so my boys could select the game that matched their middle school learning level. There was even math games for preschoolers.


Math and puzzle games to train the brain



 The math games went beyond basic math skills and included logic-based math games. My older son enjoyed a math game called CalcuDoku that combined math and sodoku for a challenging math game. My younger son enjoyed playing the Grocery Cashier that tough him math life skills. My boys were having so much fun playing the math games that they forgot that they were learning. I was happy that my boys were learning math with fun computer games. The list of math games even included some crossword puzzles, word searches, and other word-related games so my boys were even enhancing their language art skills.


Math games for homeschool teaching

 The online math games are not only free to play but can be useful for homeschool teaching and for teachers. These educational games are great for teachers and parents who are looking for ways to teach kids math on the computer. So kids will have fun learning math while they are at home. The math games are colorful and interactive so they will keep kids entertained. The games that teach math kept my boys busy and they even played some of the games together which is good due to the fact they have to share a computer. While my boys were stimulating their brains on the computer, this mom saw them smiling and laughing together. My mom's guilt about not being able to homeschool went away as I was finally figuring out a way to homeschool my boys in a way that they liked. My boys were again learning while at home. So if you are looking for a way to teach your children math, you need to check out these free online math games that will make your job as a parent/teacher a bit easier.
