Math Practice Made Fun

This is a great website. Children can easily navigate through the site to target specific skills and concepts. I especially liked the fact practice as it is more fun than just using paper flashcards. Children could easily spend hours working on math skills in many different formats. I also like the history component as oftentimes, children are resistant to use a text book but would be very open to learning important events in history using a computer.

Good site unless kids get scared!

Some of my children are creeped out by the monsters, but this is fun and educational! Unless if your children are scared of monsters of any kind, this is for you!

NEVER AGIAN

I made a very bad mistake when I let my son go on this site for his book report. When he saw the monsters he ran away screaming and hid under his bed. It has been nine days and I still can't get him to come out!!!!

Monsters are too scary for young kids.

It's educational, but my kids won't be able to view this until they're in high school, because I fear the monsters might be too scary for them now.
