Wednesday Weekly Website – Tumbletown




Review: Tumbletown Tales is a collection of fun educational games based on Canadian TV series. But even the no-TV-watching-Muslims-kids can benefit from the games on the site, after turning down the speakers in some activities with music, though music is relatively less in this website. There are four games in total.


Flower Frenzy is all about patterns. There are 3 levels in it. First two are about finding existing patterns and the third level is to spot possible patterns and bring them in existence.


You build the path for Tumbleweed!  image
Tumbletown Bound incorporates many areas of
the math curriculum; geometry and spatial
sense, problem solving and estimation, and
touches on the "structures" component of the
science curriculum.

Seed Ball is a great way to introduce your kids
to grids and plotting points on a grid, while
also helping them describe location, and teaching them the co ordinates.


There are some worksheets to go with the activities in the “Cool stuff” area. Don’t forget to have a look at the “parents and teachers” guide. It suggests how the games should be used and some very good activities to take the learning further.

Suitable for ages: 5-8
