Room Recess Doubles In Size to Offer More Educational Games for Kids

Room Recess is a collection of free educational games sites developed by an elementary school teacher. I explored the site earlier this year and I revisited it this afternoon. Room Recess has more than doubled in size and now offers more than thirty free games. The games are arranged in four categories; math games, reading games, word games, and matching games. Some of the games are one player games while others are two player games. All of the games can be played without creating an account on the site.

Applications for Education
The reading games section of Room Recess is completely new. Those games are probably the best ones on the site in terms of helping students develop new skills. Some of the games on Room Recess aren't going to teach students any new skills, but they could be fun review and practice activities for elementary school students.

The games on Room Recess aren't going to teach students any new skills, but they could be fun review and practice activities for elementary school students. One of the games that I like on the site are "Fool's Gold" in which students try to separate irregular verbs from regular verbs. Another game that I can see students liking is "Snowball Fight" in which students throw virtual snowballs at the correct answers to math problems.
