5 Benefits of Online Math Games in the Classroom

Engaging students in the classroom is harder than ever. I sometimes feel like I should have a degree in Drama to be effective in front of my class! With the advancement of technology, online math games have become a popular tool to engage our students and supplement traditional classroom learning.

As we get nearer to spring break, I'm exploring the benefits of using online math games to keep my students engaged and learning. 

Here are some of the benefits of online math games that I'm finding:


Online math games are designed to be interactive and engaging, making them more appealing to students than traditional pen-and-paper methods. By making learning fun, students are more likely to be motivated and stay focused for extended periods.

Online math games can be tailored to each student's individual needs and skill level. This personalization allows students to learn at their own pace and provides a more customized learning experience.

Immediate feedback: 

Online math games provide immediate feedback, which is crucial for students to learn from their mistakes and improve their skills. This feedback helps students understand where they went wrong and how they can improve, leading to better retention of the material.

Online math games are accessible anytime, anywhere, making them a convenient tool for students to use both in and out of the classroom. Students can access these games on a computer, tablet, or mobile device, making them a flexible option for busy families.

Online math games can reinforce classroom learning, providing students with additional opportunities to practice and apply the concepts they have learned in the classroom. This reinforcement helps students build confidence in their math skills and achieve better results.

Online math games provide numerous benefits for elementary school students. They offer an engaging, personalized, and convenient way for students to learn and reinforce math concepts. I encourage you to explore the world of online math games and discover how they can benefit your child's learning.

Digital Alternatives to Online Games

Sometimes we want to give our students access to tech and digital activities. Still, restrictions in individual districts mean they don't have access to sites like these. Fabulous alternatives to online games are resources made with Google Slides!

I have created many already and am always open to suggestions for additional topics! Take a look at all of my digital math resources by clicking the images below, and be sure to follow my TPT store to be the first to know about new resources!
