Don't miss this math resource!
I want to give a "shout out" to the Oswego School District and their super resource website: (www.oswego.org). When you arrive at the main page, click on "resources" and then on "interacive games". My students think these games are the best! From my perspective as a teacher, I must say these math games have exceeded my expectations in terms of educational content, coverage of a variety of math topics, fun/interest level, affordability (free), attention to individualization, and more! Topics range from simple counting to basic operations to fractions to telling time...I could go on and on.
My favorite feature on this website is "Design Your Own Games". Using this tool, I've made computer games that focus on a number of math topics and other subject areas. The great thing was that I controlled the content so that the students' "gaming" was specific to what I wanted them to "work" on.
Talk about customization! Thank you, Oswego School District; and to everyone else--you've got to check out this site!
