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: Cowabunga

GoTW-CowabungaIf there’s one thing you should know about the Petz at JumpStart, it is that they are always up to play some challenging learning games! Two of our sociable Pet cows, Freddy and Brody, told Frankie this week that they really wanted some friends to join them in Cowabunga. Cowabunga has been a long-time favorite game for our barnyard pals, and Frankie thought he would make sure to give these Petz their 15 seconds of fame this week. Make sure to pay respects to these cuddly little cows and play our Jumpee Mission at this DownTown Brain Training Arcade game! While you play along with these Petz, you will strengthen your skills in reading AND earn gold coins to spend at the DownTown shops! http://budurl.me/GoTW21

Game of the Week: Bubble Trouble

This is our first-ever Game of the Week, so we decided to choose a game that is jam-packed with tons of fun and helpful activities for you Jumpeez! Swim deep down through the clear, blue waters of MarineLand to complete this week’s Bubble Trouble mission. In this game, you can build up your reading and math skills while running away from pesky Punk Punks.
Learning-Template-E
Overall, there are over twenty different activities and three different levels to play from, so you will NEVER get bored! If you have not played Bubble Trouble yet, start playing and let us know which levels you are able to complete! budurl.me/GoTW1
