Homework, particularly at a very young age, is a very divisive subject. Some teachers wish to provide students learning opportunities to complete outside of school hours while others leave it to the parents to build on what students learn at school.
With Zorbit’s Math Adventure, teachers can deliver the best of both worlds by encouraging not homework, but homeplay!
We encourage students to play at home. Studies show that 15-20 minutes of Zorbit’s Math Adventure three or four times a week results in significant gains in the young learner’s mathematical understanding (Ferdig, R., & Kosko, K., 2017). In many cases, however, teachers cannot access the technological resources for such frequent gameplay. Instead, the Teacher Dashboard makes it easy for you to encourage at-home gameplay with Parent Letters.
Parent Letters can be printed from the Class Roster area of the Teacher Dashboard. You can print them individually by selecting the student’s name and clicking the Parent Letter link, or you can print a full class set by selecting the button at the top of the page.
Parent Letters include:
- A brief introduction to what Zorbit’s Math Adventure is all about
- Where and how students can access the game at home
- The student’s login information for the game
