In my home, our summer reward chart includes learning time. Our son is 7 and he can earn rewards the same as chores for ever 20 minutes of learning time he does. That learning time can be online educational games like UMIGO or reading. Typically that is the combination  we use-reading and online math with UMIGO. My son will be in second grade starting this September and is the perfect age for the UMIGO online system. For every 20 minutes of game play, he gets 1 reward which is redeemable for events or quarters. The first day playing, he went well over 40 minutes non-stop.

We started by watching the music videos, but my son is more motivated by games, so we quickly chose a game next. He did very well with navigating himself as each game starts you off with a story that leads to some sort of problem. It then directs your child on what they need to do to solve a problem. This could involve measuring something or fitting shapes. They are problem-solving as well as practicing math concepts when they feel like they are playing a game and earning an unlock.

The games are designed with all of the Common Core standards for first and second grade so your child is learning at the same level as they do in class. The games are engaging, the stories are hip and the songs have the repetition needed when learning concepts in math. Whether your child is a visual, auditory or kinesthetic learner, UMIGO will guide them and give them the at-home support needed to keep the learning active beyond the classroom or with in-home schooling.

There are plenty of resources for parents and educators as well as research to give you more insight. The funding for UMIGO is partly funded by the US Department of Education Ready to Learn Grant. With the concept in mind that repeating characters in songs, video and game play is attractive to a child, it is a very engaging learning site.
