With games that perfect the balance between fun and learning, Learning Games For Kids should be your go-to to keep your child occupied after school. These games get kids wanting to learn after school rather than doing it just for the sake of it, creating a long-lasting and positive relationship with studying. The best part is all games are divided by age along with an option to view all games in alphabetical order.
Uptoten’s easy navigation and colourful animations make the website a super-hit amongst students, especially its short to-the-point videos. The language used in the videos is friendly and reassuring, almost making children feel like they are being taught by a friend making the concepts talked about more memorable and enjoyable for them. There’s also a section of interactive colouring sheets and games which simplify topics.
10 -12 Years
At this age, children have knowledge of the basics such as vocabulary and arithmetic making them curious to dig deeper into what’s taught in school. That’s where Wonderpolis comes in the picture. Your children can look up a term that they want to know about or can take the time out to explore what’s featured on the website to learn something new or grasp the real world application of important things.
12 Years & Above
If there’s one website your children should bookmark on their PC browser for revision it has to be Brainscape for its topic-specific flashcards made by experts for better retention of study matter. Your children can test their know-how before exams to see where they stand and what to improve upon. Moreover, the confidence boost from getting answers right will surely reduce your child’s anxiety of giving exams.
With a little exploring you’ll find a lot more for your children, just keep in mind a checklist so you find the best for your child. :)
