SecretBuilders – Smart Can Be Fun

Jamie Skelton, a gaming expert and writer for the has written a great review of SecretBuilders. Here is an excerpt of what Jamie has to say about SecretBuilders:

“There's at least half a dozen other features I could delve into to highlight the great things that SecretBuilders has built and the way the community interacts and evolves, from clubs and parties, to homes and quests. The short of it is, however, that SecretBuilders is not only fun for kids, it's mentally nutritional for them too, and it possesses and encourages social awareness. It's been used by teachers, schools, and parents; it supports education and charity.”

“You really can't find a bad point about SecretBuilders. If you're looking for an educational online game for your kids - or for your classroom - SecretBuilders can deliver on its promises.”

What Are Perceptual Processing & Executive Functioning?

Imagine the following scenario: It's the first day of school, and Mrs. Smith is showing her second-grade students how to arrange their school supplies inside their desks. She draws a picture on the blackboard to demonstrate the proper placement for pencils, erasers, crayons, rulers, and other supplies. After a few minutes, most of the students' desks begin to resemble the teacher's diagram. But several students encounter difficulty. Johnny's supplies have been carefully arranged on top of the desk, instead of inside it. Jennifer's supplies are crammed into the left side of her desk, while the right side remains nearly empty. David's desk contains a heap of jumbled supplies with no apparent organizational scheme whatsoever.

The Crooked Pencil Featured Story -- The Perfect Snowman

We got about a foot of snow in the middle of the night. My school was cancelled for the next day. I had a nice, big, hot bowl of oatmeal some orange juice and a ripe banana for breakfast. I put on a couple layers of warm clothes and my winter boots and coat. Don't forget your stocking hat and gloves mom yelled out to me. I was ready for a morning of fun and laughter in this wonderful white stuff! I rolled out three huge snowballs, taking my time to be sure that they were perfect in size and shape. I took great care and time to place them on top of each other just right. I found two perfect sticks to place on each side to make arms and hands. He looked like he was waving to me. I placed some small stones where his eyes are and a carrot for his nose. I carved out a nice, big smile so everyone would smile back at him. I wrapped a long, wool scarf around his neck and knotted it so the wind wouldn't take it away. Then I placed an old felt hat upon his snowy head to finish him off. I was done. I stepped back to gaze at my creation… "THE PERFECT SNOWMAN." I was filled with joy and pride at that moment. I heard someone shout my name. I turned around to look and my little sister hit me square in the head with a snowball!! I was so surprised that I stumbled backwards and fell into my perfect snowman knocking him completely over!! At least I had a soft landing!!

Moral to this story -- "Watch out for sneeky sisters with snowballs.
