I know there are tons of places to look for free learning games but I am posting a great list that tells you which MATH objectives each of the games are targeting. Most of these games work well for the 3rd-7th grade. There are currently 64 games listed. All are free! If you have some you would like to add please send me a comment about it. My kids really like the Karate Lizard Game for practicing multiplication and division facts! Click here to view the list.
Here is a list of programs that offer freebies and student incentives. Most of these are centered around student report cards. That is the great thing! Just print out YOUR report of how well your student is doing. They count too!
Chuck E Cheese
Chuck E. Cheese’s program Tokens For Grades Up to a 15 token maximum, kids can receive 3 tokens for each “A”, 2 tokens for each “B” and 1 token for each “C” on their report card. You should be able to benefit from the program if you have any documentation showing a student’s progress and explain to the manager that they are homeschooled.
McDonald’s Students with a straight “A” report card receive: Kindergarten-5th
grades – free Happy Meal. 6th-12th grades – free Value Meal
Peter Piper various incentive awards:
