THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO LAVONNE!
My kids, ages 3 and 5, have more toys now than they will ever need. More than they ever play with. So what am I asking for them for Christmas this year? Books and software. Things that will help them learn (and things that won't clutter my living room floor!).
But the problem with "learning" toys? The fact that most children would rather play than learn. How can you overcome that hurdle? The JumpStart Learning System™ gives you the best of both worlds. Your kids are having fun while learning - how cool is that?
JumpStart World has been described as "educational software game based on national and state curriculums and research regarding how play can help children learn. Colorful and fun, JumpStart World is filled with hundreds of games with 3-D adventures that build reading, math, and critical thinking skills while instilling a love of learning and confidence, two of the key ingredients in academic success."
How does it work? A series of 12 Adventure Packs for each grade level teaches your kids critical thinking, reading and math skills. The adventures take place in a 3D world that grabs your child's attention and each Adventure Pack can be personalized with artwork, photos and custom rewards. The packs include over 30 learning games and missions with over 15 skills, progress report e-mails for parents (so you can keep track of how your child is doing), "Parent Tips", access to the Member's Website and online access to educational experts, and access to the Super Gems Reward Center (you customize the rewards your kids receive - ice cream anyone?).
The CD-Rom is available by internet order (or you can download the product). Not convinced yet? Try a free 5 day trial download first.
Or, WIN IT HERE! I have a CD-Rom copy of JumpStart World 1st Grade to give away to one lucky winner.
