As a homeschool teacher to my kids, I always try to look for the best possible way for my kids to learn. Since I have a little boy who loves to play educational games on the computer, I was excited to try out Jumpstart with him. I also wanted to see how Jumpstart has evolved over the past year since we last tried it.
We were amazed to see the new developments inside Jumpstart. My 7 year old and 4 year old both were very excited to create their Jumpeez. They both got hooked with taking care of their pets in Petz.
We also saw the familiar Storyland and Adventureland but what really grabbed our attention was the new places like Jumpstart Stadium and Enchanted Sanctuary.
The Jumpstart Stadium had some Math questions after which you can answer and play some sports related games. This was a huge hit with my kids.
Enchanted Sanctuary was the place they visited daily because of the dragon that each of them has! They look forward to seeing their dragon hatch from the egg and as they play and care for their dragon, the dragon grows bigger each day.
They also tried out the new Math Blaster. Math Blaster can be an independent program from other Jumpstart games since when you start playing the game you can register a new character and change names too. Math Blaster is geared for older kids aged 6-12, so my kids didn’t enjoy Math Blaster so much. But I tried and and noticed how much fun learning Math can be while using Math Blaster. Math skills will definitely be enhanced in each level of the game.
Jumpstart can be a great tool for your kids no matter what their age is. They have a wide variety of educational games for different ages. Aside from that, they also have a great collection of worksheets and activities online for parents to share with their kids! They have reading, spelling and even math practice sheets!
