Math Is Fun - Counting Bugs
Students are given a picture and a prompt. Such as “How many ladybugs are there?” The student has to count the ladybugs in the picture and select the correct number. The game lets the student know whether they have selected the correct number or not. If they answer the question correct, the student moves to the next level. If answered incorrectly, the student is given the opportunity to try again.
The website has all of the letters of the alphabet on colorful blocks spread out across the page. The student can select any of the letters. When the student selects a particular letter such as “A” they are given examples of where and how “A” is used. An example being “A”, “Apple”, the site gives the student numerous examples, while also sounding out the words and reviewing the sound of the letter. The website also teaches students sign language. The students can click on the letters and it states the letter and shows how to sign the letter. The game will improve phonics and increase the students vocabulary.

This game allows students to practice and test their understanding of shapes. The student is presented with a specific shape such as a circle. The student is then given four objects such as a present, an ice cream cone, a ball and a can of soup; they must match the object to the given shape.

This game works on beginning sounds of words. The game gives the student a word such as “win” then the student is supposed to select the word that has the same beginning sound. The game is fun for children because the word that is given is said by two seals, the words that have to be matched to the original given word are fish. For example there would be five fish that are assigned a word such as, “pin”, “gate, “wait”, “new”, “big”. The student must select the fish that has the same beginning sound as “win”. The game is fun and interactive. The words are read aloud to the student, so even if they cannot read they can listen to the sounds. This is a great tool for students to learn new words and recognize words that have the same beginning sound.
