My two oldest sons go to public school, but we are continuing homeschooling Evelyn through the summer. They have serious math game envy and want to find a site that would be good for their ages (going into 4th and 6th grades). We have been using Dreambox with Evelyn but it only goes through 3rd grade concepts. Chris really enjoys Kahn Academy but would love a site that has some games too. I'm okay paying a monthly fee if it's really fun for the kids.

Multiplication.com - Teach the Multiplication Facts - Times Tables
Secret Millionaires Club
Math is Fun - Homework Help
Jan Gombert
Multiplication Game
Cool math .com - An amusement park of math and more! Math lessons, math games, math practice, math fun!
Oswego City School District Math Games
IXL (This one is NOT free, but I like it. Ben's finally enjoying math now that we're using this.)

The above links are all game sites. If you'd like something more like curriculum than games, look at Teaching Textbooks (expensive). If you want something fun that isn't on the computer, look at Life of Fred (not expensive).

These are fantastic, thank you! Life of Fred looks great, Chris said he wants to give it a try and I think he and Lucas may actually be right around the same level. I'm so glad to have activities to do with them while Evelyn does her school work. I was a bit surprised that they were so eager to do "school" on their summer break but I'm so glad they are having fun.

Hey, whatever works! I always wanted school work during the summer, but I was never allowed to do any.
