Frankie’s Back-to-School Challenge!

Hi Jumpeez – Frankie here! Now that you are most likely settled into your classes, I wanted to see how much you have grown in playing some of your favorite JumpStart games! As you might have noticed in our Games of the Week, we have plenty of activities to explore in JumpStart built to strengthen your mind and ability to take on our JumpStart missions.

JS-Blog-BackToSchoolOf course, one of the best parts of playing our learning games is seeing how much you improve as the year goes on! That is why I thought it might be fun for all of us to measure our progress in a game from each of THREE special categories I created. As we learn new subjects in school, spend time practicing these games, and take on new missions through JumpStart, we can all make ourselves better and brighter Jumpeez!

So are you up for joining me in this school-year challenge? Pick a game that matches the three categories below and get started!

1. Language Arts
Language arts include everything from reading to writing to listening! With so many different topics to focus on, it might be the most exciting to choose a game that uses a subject you struggle with. Need more help with spelling? How about playing Bubble Trouble in MarineLand! How about reading? Blast-Off reading is the game for you!
2. Math
Math and science can be challenging topics for young Jumpeez, so this category might be one of the most important subjects you can practice! Games like the Charm Creator in Windy Hollows help you learn the basics of measurements, while games like Cowabunga teach you about counting. Make sure to choose a game that is fit for the topics you learn in school.
3. Problem Solving
Our last category is not so much a subject rather than a set of skills that can help you with everything from completing science experiments to succeeding in test taking. For this category, why not try building a new racetrack and Shipwreck Lagoon and timing your speeds, or see how high of a score you can get in the puzzling Punk-Punk Drop Boardwalk Arcade game!

As you can tell, there are so many games to choose from to complete this challenge! Do you know which games you want to keep track of this school year? Comment below with your three games and post your current score!

Game of the Week: Starscope Theater

GoTW-StarscopeTheaterScienceLand has many secret pathways and caverns to explore. However, if you make the long journey to the top-most point of this JumpStart area, you will find Starscope Theater. This is a special place in ScienceLand, where you can learn about all sorts of interesting facts about the galaxy! If you happen to enter the mysterious and wonderful spaces of ScienceLand this week, then make sure to check out this Jumpee Mission!

Game of the Week: Dune Buggy Racer

Between the borders of SpeedDrome and Adventure Canyon lies a stretch of sandy hills. Jumpeez have long enjoyed playing a game known as Dune Buggy Racer in this bumpy patch of land. In Dune Buggy Racer, you must race against the clock and collect a certain number of tiki heads. Not to mention, you get to ride through these hilly landscapes with your partner-in-crime, CJ.

Have you had the chance to play Dune Buggy Racer before? Head over to SpeedDrome and start working on beating the next three levels in your missions. If not, you must make sure to join CJ in working on this Jumpee Mission!

Pirate Ships have Sailed into JumpStart

Yo ho, yo ho… it’s a pirate’s life for Jumpeez! In honor of “Talk Like a Pirate” day Frankie and friends have a few swashbuckling decorations, two FunZones and a scavenger hunt that will send your buccaneers off to search for buried treasure, this month.

They can become captain of the boat and sail the seven seas. Just make sure they don’t fall overboard or they’ll be on their way to Davy Jones’ Locker! All hands on deck! It’s time to raise the anchor and set the sails! Your buccaneers can defend the island fortress from the invasion of rival pirates. They can protect their loot by shooting the canon and stopping any ships that might pass.

And last but definitely not least, there’s a new Pirate Scavenger Hunt items with hidden all around JumpStart on MainStreet, the Beach and Adventure Canyon. Make sure your Jumpeez check all three and keep track of what they’ve found on the map located in their Communicator. Grab enough booty, and there might be some gold doubloons in it for them.
