Game Goo – fun, educational games for kids

http://www.earobics.com/gamegoo/gooey.html

Check out this really great website containing games to improve reading at the primary age level.  It can be found on the Earobics Foundation website, a foundation aiming to tackle difficulties in reading at Kinder, Early and Junior levels.

“With Earobics, educators have the tools and resources they need to provide flexible classroom instruction for students of all abilities, and help their at-risk learners close the achievement gap before it’s too late.” http://www.earobics.com/solutions/programs.php

The fun, educational games on GameGoo are split in 3 levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, with characters, such as Squanky and Fearless Frieda which will appeal to the children.

How to integrate GameGoo into our teaching:

GameGoo games may be used in the classroom to reinforce literacy and reading.  They compliment any language lesson throughout all the Primary Years.  Moreover, such a website works great on an Interactive Whiteboard.

Enjoy!
