On PowerMyLearning, you can find activities for children in grades K through 12 in courses like math, language, reading, art, science, and more. These activities are NOT just for homeschooled children! The games and videos are a great way for parents to be involved in the learning process and a fantastic way to beat the summer "slide" (loss of information learned in previous school year) that most kids experience before returning to school the next year.
Not only are the games on PowerMyLearning relevant, and vary depending on grade level, but they are addictive! My children begged to get back to the games after dinner and was the first thing that they asked for in the morning. My oldest son even heard them laughing and playing and decided that he should visit the site too and do a little learning "catch up" as he called it.
As a parent, I think that the best part about PowerMyLearning is that the games and videos come from trusted sources. You will see names like PBS, Scholastic, BBC, and other well known educational outlets. The site is safe for kids and is so easy to navigate. It even encourages the kids to play more by giving them play points for each completed activity. With 4 kids in the house competing....it is sure to be a quick race for points!
So...now I am not so worried about the "screen time" that my children are having. They aren't simply watching shows, they are interacting! I have found them writing, reading, doing math problems, and learning TOGETHER! I say that is a WIN!
Check out PowerMyLearning for your kids! It is FREE, FUN, and an AMAZING tool for parents, children, and teachers. You just may get addicted to the games too!
