School Zone Publishing Company began back in 1974 as School Zone Learning Centers. Parents looking for workbooks at home to help with educating their kids (at a time when the school curriculum was changing and parents needed some help ensuring at home education was aiding students in school) found it at School Zone Learning Centers. Over the years, the company has grown and now includes over 200 educational products.
We all know that it’s much easier to help children learn when they are having fun and learn through play. We were sent School Zone Math 1-2 Software for our PC to try out with Elijah, for ages 6 and up. There’s 2 CDs in the package: Deluxe Edition Math 1-2 and On-Track Math 1.
Math 1-2 (seen above) is the more fun disc of the two. It’s more game-focused – children travel to another galaxy to work on math (kind of the way I felt when I had to do math…but I digress). Each achievement unlocks a different piece of a machine that they can build. Skills learned and practiced here include addition/subtraction, grouping, and fractions.
If the kids in your family are flooded with toys during the holidays and you’re a parent, aunt or grandparent that would like to get them something for useful, consider educational software like this. Math 1-2 is great for ages 6+ and will give them something to do over the holidays, keeping their little brains sharp for the return to school in January. Shipping Options from School Zone are listed here.
