Something Like Starfall Except for Math

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I am looking for something like Starfall except for math. Any suggestions?

Thank You!

I'm giving this a bump because I would like to find one too. One great one that is a little more advanced is the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives:

There's some great stuff, but its just not really elementary like Starfall.

Anybody?

It's not online based, but my almost 6yo uses jump start and I'm just amazed that he 'gets' the fractions part of it! He loves it

I have been looking for the same type of program. Despite numerous searches, I have yet to find any games as good and elementary as Starfall. PBS kids Cyberchase has a couple mathy type things on it. My 7 yr old son loved breaking the code on one game.

I have heard some good things about Math Blasters. It's a computer game, not a website. But it's 30 bucks. Does anyone use this and is it as good as the game says it is?

We are lucky to be able to sign out computer games through our local library, so ds has tried a whole bunch of them. (Makes it much easier to decide which ones to buy!) He's doing first grade math, and Jumpstart first grade is definitely his favorite of what we've tried. It covers more than just math, but it seems like he likes the math games the most. He also likes Reader Rabbit first grade (Capers on Cloud Nine). He found Math Blaster 1st grade to be boring (which is a bummer, since I bought that one because our library didn't have it). We're on the waiting list for Millie's Math House through our library, which I'm thinking he'll enjoy since he enjoyed playing Trudy's Time House in the same series.

This question comes up often. I think one of us cool homeschooling moms needs to invent one! :

Math Blaster is ok. My 8 yo DS gets it at the library sometimes.

The Clue Finder series is the most engaging for him, though. We borrow those from the library too. Plenty of math, reading, creative problem solving.
Our library has 3rd, 4th & 5th grade in this series...
