Kicking Around Ideas About Classroom Technology at MyClassHQ
Posted by Katie on June 25th, 2012
Summer is here! School is out! Now what? Summer is a great time to extend learning with hands-on activities at home. One of the best resources for obtaining ideas for summer enrichment is BrainPopJr. Click here to access a comprehensive list of topics. BrainPopJr. provides background information and multiple family activity suggestions for each topic.
Not sure where to start? Since there are a multitude of topics to select from on BrainPopJr., picking one might seem difficult at first. We recommend simply starting with a topic that is high-interest for your child. Also, it would be fun to check BrainPop’s Featured Movie and Events Section. Finally, selecting topics by academic standards is always a great option. You can search for topics that are aligned with the Common Core Standards, subject area and grade level using BrainPop’s Academic Standard search tool.
Exploring BrainPopJr. independently will also be a great use of time for your child. They will have the opportunity to view brief educational video clips (under the Free Stuff section you will find resources that do not require a subscription). To coincide with the video, a quiz, Belly Up comic, graphic organizer, a joke, suggested reading, and a game are all available for exploration.
Slip in some summer skill building as often as possible! A great way to make BrainPop accessible is by downloading the BrainPop Featured Movie app on your iPhone or iPad.
