DD1's school uses Quiz.org, but it's not terribly exciting.  Are there any fun and engaging sites you can recommend that will help her learn her addition and subtraction tables up to 12?  

 

Thanks,

~Cath

Thanks for the link.  We just checked it out and I remember visiting there before.  

 

DD1 was playing with the "base 10" blocks but I'm not sure what she gets out of that.  

 

Can you recommend any exercises in particular?

 

BTW, I love your tagline:  "Timmy's Mommy WARNING:Dyslexic typing with help of preschooler, beware of typos."

I teach middle school math and we've just started using ixl.com. So far we like it a lot, but I don't have any experience with using it with younger kids. I've had mixed luck with the games here: http://www.multiplication.com/interactive_games.htm. Some are worthwhile, and some seem really superficial to me and I don't like that the site has ugly ads. But kids generally seem to like the games.

I took a quick look at ixl.com.  The home page is really crowded and kind of intimidating but I'm pretty some of the exercises will be helpful.

 

DD1 and DD2 both like multiplication.com.  I agree some of the games are superficial but some of them are fairly challenging but still engaging and hold their interest.

 

Thanks,

~Cath

Ds used to go to a site that I can not remember the name of now...will go check his profile later.   His school has a link of the media center's website for recommended by the librarian.  This is their math recommendations: http://www.kidsclick.org/cgi-bin/searchkids.pl?searchtype=subject&keywords=math+games&title=Math+Games
