Learning is a gift. I’ve always said that. I loved learning when I was a kid, but I knew a lot of kids who didn’t. When I became a mom, I wanted to ensure that my kids loved learning, so I did my best to make sure that they had fun discovering and learning as early as possible. Cut to the year of 2020, learning, and especially having to homeschool them has definitely become a challenge. I’m sure not only for my children, but for many of yours as well. For months now, I’ve been searching for fun and unique ways to get them excited again.
I recently discovered Prodigy Education, a free, adaptive math game that integrates curriculum-aligned math into a fantasy game that makes it fun for students from grades 1st through 8th to learn math. It’s a web-based game, which means it can be accessed at school and at home on practically any device.
Throughout the game, students must correctly answer skill-building math questions in order to advance the game by completing epic quests and earning exciting rewards and exotic pets that they can collect. What makes this game so unique, aside from its approach to making learning fun, is its adaptive algorithm that monitors your child’s progress and makes the game progressively more challenging, building off of what the kids have learned previously. This ensures that the game remains engaging and fun, with new skill for the kids to master. The girls absolutely love playing!
There’s another huge plus to Prodigy. In addition to its math game, it offers Prodigy Math Tutors. These certified teachers adapt their style and lessons to the needs of their specific students, ensuring that kids get the help that they need and that’s tailored to their specific learning styles.
Right off the bat, you can see that this is a great way to enrich your child’s school learning, but with so many schools having closed due to COVID, Prodigy Education also makes an excellent tool in homeschooling and remote learning applications, as well. It’s the perfect combination of fun and learning, making screen time both fun and productive for the kids and keeping them sharp – and busy – over the holiday season.
With Christmas break happening right now, it’s the perfect time to give the gift of learning with Prodigy Education. Its unique approach to making learning fun, interactive, and adaptive is the perfect thing for kids this holiday season because learning is a gift.
