Ten Problem Solving Games for K-8 Students

Over the weekend I explored a good website called Math and Reading Help for Kids. Math and Reading Help for Kids has a small collection of problem solving and logic games that could be good for elementary school and possibly middle school use. The tasks that the games ask students to perform include identifying differences between objects, moving shapes to solve simple logic problems, and typing accurately.

Math and Reading Help for Kids has some good articles about and tutorials for helping kids learn reading, writing, and arithmetic. The website also has some good articles for parents about helping their students at home.

Applications for Education
The games on Math and Reading Help for Kids are best suited to use by elementary school students although there may be some cases in which middle school students could benefit from the games.
