Five games are discussed in this post. However only two of them are free to use. Each is discussed in the post and you can go directly from the post to the game.

The first two listed below are free. 

* The Sports Network 2 - This game was developed through a grant from the Gates and Hewlett Foundations to meet Next Generation Learning Standards and focuses on Common Core State Stanards in ELA and Literacy. Students become a cable sports show producer and must "make sure the  show’s content is written well and on point.." 

* Prodigy is geared to elementary school and focuses on math. "Kids use math to wield magic and combat monsters as they venture through a fantasy-based world and level up their characters." It is designed to differentiate instruction, is aligned to the Common Core for grades 1 - 5 and is "free forever."

* Dragon Box Algebra 5+ - DragonBox is a program that consistently receives high praise and helps to introduce students to core concepts of algebra, and may be used with children as young as 4. There is also an advanced version of the program for older students.

* Word Raider focuses on vocabulary. Using academic terms and visuals it provides students with practice while having fun.

* DreamBox is "a comprehensive, game-based math curriculum oozing with style and full of well-designed, self-paced games that adapt to students’ abilities.
