Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Review from a Math Teacher

I'm a math teacher so I can only speak on the math section. We used this to warm up the kids during remote learning. We created private games so only our class would have access to the games we were playing. I love it because it's both fun and educational. I also liked the fact that since you don't have to enter a student roster, there's no need to worry about security concerns. The competition aspect encourages kids to do better, and may even inspire them to practice on their own. Especially if real prizes are involved. One thing I didn't like is that some of the games only allow 4 players. I wish there were more 12 player games available. The ability to host a game without actually having to join in would be nice as well. We played these games for over 3 months, and I didn't notice any glitches. We'll be playing these games on our iPads even when we are able to go back into the classroom.

Competitive platform for learning fun!

Race cars and tugboats, Koalas and Penguins! Wide variety of learning games that help with Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division facts, capital cities, decimals, fractions and vowel combinations, too. Many games have the ability to play with others in your class or individually. This site really helps my third graders stay focused on learning.
