Educational Benefits

We all know that kids find video games fun, exciting and motivating. But what about the benefits of using video games for educational purposes?

According to the research, using video games to learn encourages the learner to take an active role in his or her learning, take risks, and engages the learner in an interactive, fun way. Using video games to learn ensures children get immediate feedback, understand each new skill before moving on to the next level, and challenges children to keep going to improve their scores or get more points and, while doing this, reinforce what is being learned.

The Importance of the Skills Being Developed in Kids Learn™ Spelling & Grammar

Good spelling and grammar skills are essential for effective communication in writing and also to reinforce skills needed to be an effective reader. Research has shown that effective readers and writers unconsciously use a range of skills and strategies as they read and write, and that these strategies and skills can be identified and taught to enable all students to become effective communicators.

Playing Kids Learn™  Spelling and Grammar 

Kids Learn™  Spelling and Grammar was designed for children from 7 – 12 years old as a way to reinforce their everyday spelling and grammar skills.

The game is divided into a Games Mode; an Exercise Mode; and a Career Mode. In the Games Mode, players play games that help them practice their skills; in the Exercise Mode, players complete skills-based activities without the time constraints; and in the Career Mode, players use the skills they learned when they completed the exercises and play the games to unlock new games.

Kids Learn™ Spelling and Grammar uses a spy theme to engage children in the games and activities. The games are divided into 5 categories: Searching for Clues, Secret Messages, Identify/Combine, Gadgets/Experiments, and Mission Training. Each of these categories contains a number of games within them that challenge the players to solve problems using various spelling and grammar skills.

Additionally Kids Learn™Spelling and Grammar:

Performance Tracking: During the game you can constantly check your performance results for specific exercises or entire modules, to see how you're doing. When you think you've trained enough, you can try some career exercises to see if you can improve your score and unlock some new games!

Personal Coach: Your personal coach will explain how to play each game, give you tips on how to improve your abilities and evaluate your results.

Career Mode: When you think you have practiced enough in Games mode you can try to play Career mode. This is where you can show what you learned in Games mode! When you start Career mode you will be presented with your career score so far. Select the Start icon to start playing the day's Career round! One round in Career mode consists of 3 games. You can only play 1 round each day, so if you've lready played Career mode today you will have to wait until tomorrow to play another round. After you have completed all 3 games from the Career round, 3 new games will be unlocked.

Exercise Mode: In the Exercise mode you can practice your language skills through some basic exercises. There are three types of exercises you can choose from: Syllables, Synonyms & Antonyms and Dictation. Each Exercise is played like the games in Games mode and is explained by the coach. The main difference Each exercise can be completed using one of three methods: simple, halfhandwritten or handwritten.

Analysis: On the Analysis screen you can view your results for the Career and Games modules and see how your results have improved over time. Your Game results will be presented in a separate graph for each difficulty level.

...and much more!

Your child can play while learning with Kids Learn™ Spelling & Grammar - a great investment in your child's development.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mom made me do it. February 28, 2012

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Face it, kids play a lot of video games. When I think my kid is goofing off too much - it's "the educational game or none at all" - she'll play and will keep playing long after she's passed "for at least a half hour" mark.

My granddaughter was playing and laughing with this fun game in minutes after receiving it. She is asking for more games like this one for her DS. My daughter states that she can see an improvement in the work since using this game.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My daughter has not played this game much at all. If your child is very studious then you might find it more helpful. However, if you have a child your trying to get envovled more into learning, one who is not focused and your trying to focus, this is not the game for them.
