Online Educational Game Suggestions

Greeting parents! On behalf of Ms. Nguyen 4th Grade class, we have found an online game that you and your child could play together. The game is called “All Around the World- A Multiplication Game for Kids”. Here is the URL provided: http://mrnussbaum.com/aroundtheworld/ . If you are having problems with finding the game you can also go onto the main website which is: http://mrnussbaum.com/ and search for game. Note this game can also be played on your IPad or Tablet. “All Around the World-A multiplication Game for Kids”​ will help your child build their skills and memorization inregards to multiplication. This game features 21 students who are from different countries which will give you and your child an opportunity to see many different cultures as well! Now your goal is to help your child pick students from around the world; who are set in one classroom to answer the multiplication problem correctly within TEN SECONDS. After the ten seconds is done, the game will take you back to the classroom in which you will pick the next student, and so forth until all the students within the classroom has played. Now if your child does get the problem wrong the correct answer will still be provided for your child to see. We are currently beginning to learn about Multiplication, we do use the Times Table, and have the children make flash cards, but this game adds a fun twist and challenge by giving the students only 10 seconds to answer the problem. The children are allowed to ask their classmates for help after 5 seconds have passed. The children enjoy the fast pace of this game but also enjoy the certificate that they won by working together at the end of the game. Remember a certificate will be awarded at the end if you win the game, the certificate can be printed out as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact

me. Have Fun!

Survey

Attached below is a link to a survey that I have created in efforts to get to know you and your child more. The survey consists of likes and dislikes in regards to favorite subject, favorite way to learn, and your favorite hobby. This survey allows me to see the differences within all my students and their families. I would love to incorporate my student's interests within the classroom to make it more fun and engaging. If you have any tips or questions that I could add onto my survey to make it more exciting again feel free to contact me!
