Count Us In - Math Games

Here's a site for young students who are learning basic math concepts.  There are 15 games to help children learn counting, patterns, sorting, basic addition and subtraction and other early elementary topics.  A really great find for a kindergarten or a grade 1 teacher.  Games could be played alone on the computer or even better as a class especially if used on a smart board.  The graphics are vibrant and it's really easy to use.  The site also describes other activities that the teacher could do in the class when introducing these concepts.
