Itzabitza

Your child can bring her creations to life in Itzabitza. 

At first glance, the game “Itzabitza” might seem to be no more than an easy fun, albeit simple, drawing program. Observe your child play for a bit of time, though, and you’ll find that it’s much more to offer. This game — created for 4- to 8-year-olds — encourages kids to learn to read by requiring them to draw pictures and objects. As the child draws, the game brings their drawings to life using a unique “Living Ink” technology. Even the most rudimentary rocket ship will become so real, and a young child’s representation of a cloud can spill enough rain to cause the characters in the game to bring out their umbrellas. While they play, children not only increase reading comprehension, but also learn problem solving, creativity, logic and communication skills. After your children have conquered the original “Itzabitza,” find a copy of its companion game, “Itzazoo,” to keep your children engaged and motivated.

FutureU

This game brings the company’s famous SAT-prep curriculum to users of both PC and Mac by using mini games to help students enhance their reading, writing and math skills. This is arguably the best and most enjoyable method to prepare for the difficult, much-dreaded SAT, and there’s even a special section built to improve teens’ test-taking skills. It’s possible the best thing about this game is that it can be played in many ways such as short bursts, allowing students to fit in a few minutes of educational play whenever they have spare time.

Have you tried playing all of them? Which one is your favorite?
