Online School Helpers

I've discovered a couple websites that my kids have enjoyed to help them with their Math and Spelling.

Spelling:  We do a word search each week with their spelling words.  If we have time, I have them enter their own words by typing them into the computer.  This really helps them memorize the words.  This is the word search website we like.  I usually just type in word search maker in my Google search to find it.  It even saves your past word searchs.  I like that you can select what directions up, down, backwards, forwards, diagonals to fit the age of your child.

Math:  Are you kids tired of their flash cards?  This is an online math game to test speed and accuracy.  You can make it as easy or as hard as you like.  Click here for the math game.  We have used this during spring break to keep their minds active.

Have you found any websites that are helpful for your kids in reinforcing school concepts?  Please share in comments.


  1. ya I'm a bad Mom, my kids don't do educational things on the computer, they just play. We do have reader rabbit though which is fun and educational. I've heard of a couple other sites but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

  2. We really like Fact Dash from Macmillian math. We also do Johnnie's math page. It has tons of math games. We love It has actors reading stories online. is a good one for printing out pages. has fun stuff too.
    I bookmark the sites I allow so the kids can find them easily.

  3. Thanks Lisa, I love the idea of having a book mark for the kids. Great idea! These webpages look like really good ones, Thanks!

  4. I find another site specifically for Preschool age children.
    Looks like some great education games.
