It is always said that it is easy to learn while playing, so when things are presented in a playful way, learning becomes a piece of cake. This is where www.jumpstart.com makes life and learning easy for kids.

If you or your sibling take studies or learning as a boring job, then JumpStart makes it very easy through an entertaining game-based learning experience.

Just how is this done? The purpose of the site is to drill you in specific subjects and skills, as required by elementary and secondary school curriculum. These drills are often embedded within entertaining gameplay.

The storylines typically involve one or more animated characters facing a problem and asking you for help, therefore, the games are goal oriented.

The website is focussed on kids of ages three years to 12 years and everything provided on the site is age-appropriate, so you can choose from the categories you fall into. For instance, if you choose pre-school, the site gives you options of words, shapes, counting and phonics. Choosing any one of them will take you to the section with an interactive platform.

However, to cater to different audiences and student goals, Jumpstart binned their products into three categories: grade-based products, covering all topics typically taught in a single year of elementary or secondary school; subject-based products, focusing on specific topics and learning products, teaching basics while exploring a whole new world of entertainment.

According to the site, the concept behind Jumpstart was to keep track of a student’s successes and struggles, all the while teaching an entire grade or subject through a proper balance of puzzles, games and education.

With an ensemble of fun-loving and unique characters, action-packed worlds, stimulating educational activities and a customised playing experience, you or your sibling will soar ahead of your peers.

Jumpstart is an educational media franchise for children, consisting mostly of educational games, produced by Knowledge Adventure (Educational software maker). It originally started with educational PC games, but later expanded to include workbooks, videos, iPad apps and other media, including a massive multiplayer online game.

So let’s jumpstart at www.jumpstart.com
