Website Wednesday

This week we are going back to basics - maths basics with a site called Count Us In Games

 This is the home page. The site itself has 15 games and if you look in the sidebar (not shown in this screen shot) you can actually download these games as applications for your computer.
 Game 1 - Sharing. Pretty self explanatory, kid practice sharing into the two paddocks. Gets them understanding the concept of equal groups
 Game 4 - Ordinal Numbers. There isnt too many ways to make ordinal numbers fun is there? But this seems to do the trick
 Game 5 - Number Identification. Students match the number to a number of objects
Game 8 - Subtraction. This uses the concept of bowling to knock down/take away pins.

Although my Year 2 student find most of these games relatively easy, they still do enjoy playing them and because they are successful in completing these activities correctly, they have a great sense of achievement too.

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks website :) Click on the home page to go and try it yourself
