It's summer and we are soooo excited!! However, as a teacher, I understand the importance of still providing my little ones with educational activities!! Ella is five and getting ready to start school so it has been challenging trying to find an activity that keeps her attention! So, we were thrilled when we were offered the opportunity to review JumpStart Virtual World for Preschool and Kindergarten as well as http://www.jumpstart.com/.

JumpStart is an award-winning adventure-based 3D virtual world that is super-personalized, wildly imaginative and really fun, but don't let that fool you - it also teaches math, reading, and critical thinking skills so kids get a real jump start in life.

JumpStart®, an award-winning brand from Knowledge Adventure®, has set the standard in kid’s educational software for over 15 years. Today, the JumpStart experience is more engaging, interactive and fun than ever! In 2009, they introduced http://www.jumpstart.com/, an online adventure where 3-10 year old kids master the skills needed to succeed in school and in life through exploration, discovery and learning. By blending interactive adventures and award-winning learning games into a safe, customizable online world, JumpStart inspires minds and JumpStarts self-confidence… the fun way.

I love how Jumpstart.com is divided in multiple virtual world! The worlds include StoryLand (ages 3-5), AdventureLand (5-7), and soon-to-be-launched FutureLand (7-10)! These worlds present kids with opportunities to learn pre-reading, early math, social studies, art, music, computer skills and critical thinking skills. I love a program that I can use with both my Kindergartner and 5th Grader! We also feel confident when my kids are playing on the site because it is a fun, secure, safe, and very educational site!

Ella had so much fun playing and exploring! It's a very kid friendly site and Ella was able to navigate her way around the site with very little help from anyone else! We encourage you to View the Demo and see for yourself all the educational activities that this site has to offer!
