Many parents and teachers limit computer time as many young learners get addicted to mindless computer games that reinforce all the wrong behaviors such as impulsivity and guessing. However, there is a huge selection of wonderful educational and cognitive games available to young learners that can both strengthen areas of weakness and also teach difficult concepts. Over the past decade, I have created descriptions and links to some of my favorite games for my students on my Learning to Learn website. In addition, I have organized them under the following categories: Cognitive Games, General Education Games, Writing and Language Games, Social Studies Games, Science Games, Spelling Games, Reading Games, Digital Story Telling, Math Games, Grammar Games, Typing Games, Social Skills, and Sequencing. In an effort to “spread the word,” I’m providing a link to my page so others can benefit from these beneficial games too.

If you know of other free games that improve cognition or learning, please leave them in the comments below. I will be sure to check them out and add them to this growing resource.
