Kids Numbers - Learning Math Step by Step

Kids Numbers is a basic mathematics program featured on the Kids Know It Network. Kids Numbers contains a twelve week program for learning addition and subtraction. As a part of the program there are twenty-one games designed for practicing and reinforcing addition and subtraction skills.

Kids Numbers also offers a seventeen week program for learning multiplication and division. Just as in the addition and subtraction program, the multiplication and division program contains games designed for practicing the skills acquired through the training program.

In addition to the basic mathematics training program, Kids Numbers offers some introductory games for pre-Algebra and basic Geometry. Teachers looking to create worksheets can use the free worksheet generator offered by the Kids Know It Network.

Applications for Education
Kids Numbers could be an excellent source of practice and reinforcement activities for elementary school mathematics students. The sequence of activities and games could help teachers differentiate within the classroom as students can work on the lessons and play the games individually. Kids Numbers and the Kids Know It Network are sites that you may want to recommend to parents that are looking for academic websites for their children to use at home.

Free Animated Educational Movies

The Kids Know It Network is full of educational interactive games and movies intended for elementary school students. The Kids Know It Network hosts a number of animated videos explaining and demonstrating concepts from math, science, geography, and English. Each video starts with an introduction to a topic and is followed by a quiz. If a student gets less than 80% of the items correct they are prompted to start the video again.

The Kids Know It Network
has a lot of good activities and videos for elementary school students. The only complaint I can see some teachers or administrators making regards the placement of advertising links on the website. The placement of some of the advertising disrupts the continuity of some pages.
