Top Learning Games for Kindergartners

Kindergarten is a time to build many foundational skills, however, homeschooling this age doesn’t have to be all work and no play! There are many learning games for kindergarteners that can be super fun as well as excellent learning solutions. 

Kindergarten Learning Games

Educational games for 5-year-olds need to focus on the alphabet, counting, early reading skills, simple math skills, and basic science and social studies concepts. The games themselves should consist of introducing the concept as well as drill and practice with that concept. It’s important that the game be substantive and not just something that passes the time. We’ve pulled together our tried and true favorites and we are sure they won’t disappoint!
