Maths and English computer based programmes for primary aged pupils?

Discussion in 'Private tutors' started by vallo56, Jan 18, 2012.

  1. Hi Steve I use Wordshark', Number shark, the Braintastic series, Numbers Up- Volcanic Panic, the Nessy Learning Program me and Nessy Spelling games. Some of these can be expensive, so look on ebay.
  2. Thanks,

    I've not heard of a couple of those before, so I'll check them out.

  3. For maths, try mangahigh.com. You can set personal/group challenges.
    For English, Lexia is fantastic but can be very expensive. Try lexia.co.uk. We use both of these regularly in my special school. Lexia is particularly good as it lets you know the areas in which a pupil is struggling.
  4. I use Wordshark and Numbershark. Children really enjoy it and it is suitable for children with learning difficulties. They enjoy Nessy too but I feel that too much time is spent playing unrelated games, which take a long time to complete- time you don't have when a lesson only lasts an hour!
