We know what teachers need. Doubt it? Try us!
Every teacher needs more time – more time to meet each individual student’s needs, more time to grade assignments, more time to prepare for meetings with parents.
What do teachers want? Not all teachers want a pay raise, a four-day weekend, a year’s supply of chocolate and maybe a glass of Chardonnay, that’s just almost all teachers. What every teacher wants is for his or her students to learn. That’s why they became teachers in the first place.
Seven ways we can help
1. Learning materials – we have you covered. Our website is full of videos and presentations that teach math and social studies. Educational resources include customizable PPT files and PDFs , educational movies, clipart, standards-aligned pre- and post-tests, curated links to additional resources across the Web and more. All resources are free to use and aligned with the concepts taught in our games. You can download these to teach multiplication, division, fractions or statistics whether you use our games or not. (Why wouldn’t you use our games? They’re awesome! Some are even free!) Select by game from the menu to get started.
2. Automated scoring of student responses. Students are immediately told if their answer is correct or incorrect.
3. Student scores – if you license our games, you can pull up any student’s record including whether they answered a problem right or wrong, whether they read the hint and what answer they gave.
4. Individual instruction. All of our games accommodate to student choices. Wrong answers lead to instruction, not just more questions. Players can choose to watch a video, read a web page or do an activity to learn more.
5. Motivating students – With storylines by an award-winning author, high-resolution graphics and engaging game play, your students will ask you if they can stay in class and play. (Really! We’ve seen it!)
6. Standards-aligned – Each problem, each activity is aligned with a state standard. Need to cover teaching a fraction is a/b when a whole is divided into b equal parts? Play Fish Lake. Each resource page has standards identified.
7. Track progress – we have pre- and post-tests your students can take both for practice for online standardized tests and to track their own progress. You can check online results for individual students or your whole class.
Once you’ve checked out all of the clip art, PowerPoints and videos that supplement our games, click on OUR GAMES in the menu (or just click here) and see what our games can offer. Some of those are free as well.
