Math Games: Fun Learning for K-2 and Middle School

School is back, thank goodness right? Back-to-school nights have been attended, supplies have been bought, first day pictures have been taken, and teachers are assigning homework. Our work is done, right? Yea we wish. Parent involvement doesn’t stop when school starts, as much as we wish all we had to do was drop the kids off every morning and pick them up every afternoon we know that our kids learn and work better in a school environment in which we are involved in the learning process. That is why we spend so much time looking at books, checking on websites, and talking with our fellow mom friends. We know how important it is to you to be able to help your children learn and grow. So we took some time to look at a few special ways to help your kids with math. Since math is often a difficult subject we found two incredible websites that offer fun learning games that help to teach math to two important age groups; K-2 and middle schoolers.
