Word Grid Game Review

Review:  Fun exiting and really educational

 

Instructions: 

Try to make as many 3 to 8 lettered words, for example the letters I had were A,E,I,P,Q,l,M,O and T. A three to eight lettered word that I can make is POET. Click on those letters then click on the last one to confirm your word. Don’t worry on this game there is no timer.

Tips:

Look at your letters then write some words you can make then click on the letters then confirm your word. Play this game it can help you with spelling.

Math Lines Game Review

Review:  Fun exiting and really educational

 

Instructions:

Find all of the pairs that add up to ten eg. 5+5=, 8+2. Shoot the number that will equal 10. For example, the number 6 is in the shooter and the number 4 is at the front. Try to aim the shooter to the number 4 before it gets to the end and into the hole. Don’t worry there is no timing.

Tips:

Before you play write down all the way you can make 2 numbers equal 10. Practise your aiming. It can help you with maths.

Games

Hi Year 4,

I have stumbled across some great games that I can embed into our Blog. These are games that you can play on our Blog without going to different websites. Each time I post a new game I will also add a star rating system please take the time to rate the game.

If you think that the game was AWESOME and you will play it again, give it 5 stars.

If you think that it was BORING and you will never play it again, give it 1 star.

It you think that it was somewhere in the middle, give it 2,3 or 4 stars.

Happy Playing!

Mrs. S
