Lesson Goal

Gameplay screenshot.

Tell the students that the goal of this study moment is to try to get as many stars from the minigames as possible.

Please note that 2 stars might be the realistic expectation for kids under preschool age, with errors and time lowering the actual score - not even adults get always full three points.

While playing, you can make mental notes what types of exercises are hard for kids. This helps to build up a picture of the learning capabilities of the child and even lead to the diagnosis of possible learning difficulties, such as dyslexia. Most of the cases, the best medicine is just extra training.

How to Play

To start playing, select any of the minigames by tapping them. Hold to scroll and see all available games.
