Fuel the Brain

One thing I always loved about math is being able to use a lot of cool manipulatives with the students. However, that does not mean you have to literally drag out the materials every single time you introduce a math concept. There are a lot of great interactive math websites out there that engage students and compliment your lesson. Best of all, no clean up! Below I spotlighted a few interactive games from Fuel the Brain. Check out their website to explore more (http://www.fuelthebrain.com).

The Hungry Spider is great for primary grades. First, they pick their bug of choice and then they have fun collecting them. You can take turns as a whole group or have students practice on the computer while in centers.

With Flash Interactive, base ten blocks or ten frames flash on the screen for a set time limit. The student then types in the number that was shown. The time decreases the more the student answers correctly and time increases with incorrect answers.

I have to say Jelly Golf is by far the favorite of the interactive games. Students play 9 holes of fraction fun by holding and draging  the golf club to match the fraction given. Push swing and watch to see if you get a hole in one!
