Free Books & Math Resources for 4/20/2020

Happy National Library Week!  Since the physical library is closed during National Library Week, I’ve put out a new batch of freebie books on the back porch. If you’ve been itching for some new reading material, go take a look! It’s a beautiful day for a walk.

Also today, I’m bringing you a bagful of fun math games.  A patron wanted some help looking for resources on fractions and decimals, so I did a little web searching and came up with some fun math links for every age. (Remember, you can always contact me with any topics you’d like help researching.)

For the younger crowd, PBSKids has a great math games website.  The games are cute and engaging, and for those who know the characters, there’s an extra incentive.  (You don’t need to know the characters to enjoy these, however.) Highly recommended!
This site has games for grades preK through 5 in multiple subjects, as well as worksheets, activities, songs and more.  Right now, it’s free to join, and you’ll get access to some stellar content. 

This site has just over a dozen free games, but each lets you choose the grade level and math skill.
