The California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1976 to promote bilingual education and quality educational experiences for all students in California. CABE has chapters, members and affiliates, along with partnerships with other state and national advocacy organizations working to promote equity and student achievement for students with diverse cultural, racial, and linguistic backgrounds. CABE recognizes and honors the fact that we live in a rich multicultural, global society and that respect for diversity makes us a stronger state and nation.

 

Do You Use Games at Your School?  If not, let me tell you why you should!

In our pilot study, fourth- and fifth- grade students from two schools in the same rural community were tested on multiplication, division and basic math facts. After 10 weeks, students were tested again. Students who had played our games an average of 30 minutes, twice a week, improved their math scores 50%.  The control group school students improved their scores 10% . Students in classes that played the games less often (the fifth-graders) improved less than 50% but still more than the control group.

Upon further testing, we found that on average the improvement in math scores is around 30% and significantly higher than control groups.

If you want to try the bilingual experience with your children or students, we invite you to check out our bilingual games.
