I watch babies in my home and at the same time, when DS (4.5) is not at his part time preschool, he can be really clingy and whiny when we're stuck in the house (e.g. babies napping, bad weather, etc.).  For the last year, he's been doing Reading Eggs, which is made up of lessons that you move through step by step with occasional quizzes before you can move on.  It worked and he can totally read now!  But now I'm panicking because that was one of the only things he would do independently and quietly for a half hour or so.  Does anyone know of any other kind of online lessons that would be geared toward someone learning on a K level in math and 2nd grade level in reading?  The feedback and levels really seem to keep him focused on it.

Monkey Math is a fun app. It covers counting, addition, subtraction, more/less, bigger/smaller, and patterns. You earn fun accessories for a virtual fish tank...weird, but kids like rewards. It also learns what your child finds easy or struggles with and adjusts. We have another math app called Mermaid that is similar but more like a video game.

My dd enjoyed the free starfall games a lot (mostly early reading, but there are some areas that are for kids already reading as well as simple reading-but-fun types of activities, usually holiday related).  

 

I believe she's also said that she's really liked some of the math games at PBS kids (and if you're mainly interested in math, they do divide them out for you so you wouldn't have to search through all the games).
