JumpStart has been around for many years, first as a terrific CD based computer game and now as an online experience. The same premise remains, making learning an adventure filled with games, challenges and puzzles. Great animations and colorful characters grab children’s attention immediately and they are hooked. Convinced that they are playing games and outsmarting their way to high scores and advancing through levels they are in fact flexing their brain power. For those of you who remember previous incarnations the answer is Yes, Math Blaster is still here. JumpStart is broken up into grade levels so parents can feel confident that their child is learning and playing at the correct educational level. Parents felt that this would be a particularly great tool for kids to use during the summer months. Home schooling parents also felt that it could be a nice adjunct to the work they are doing.
