LOS ANGELES -- Today Earlier Media announced the launch of Game Classroom A+ Alert, a weekly educational newsletter designed to get parents and children talking and learning. A+ Alert delivers high-interest current events and timely topics to busy parents and teachers, highlighting resources that will encourage thoughtful conversation. For parents of students in Kindergarten through 6th grade, the newsletter is available in four different editions, each with specially selected, age-appropriate content.
"We hear from teachers and parents every day who love the content we offer on Game Classroom and want to find new educational opportunities to incorporate into their class or daily lives," said Josh Solt, COO of Earlier Media. "The Game Classroom A+ Alert is a great way to do just that. We cover topics that interest kids, and we present them in a way that engages the whole family. Our goal is to facilitate a dialogue and get everyone excited about learning. Every parent with an elementary-school-aged child should sign up to receive our newsletter today."
Game Classroom is the destination for high-quality math games, worksheets and homework help. It is easy to use and enjoy. Kids feel confident navigating the site, while parents can feel confident knowing that it offers their children a safe place to improve their academic skills through age-based homework help and games.
The A+ Alert is designed to extend Game Classroom's skill-building and learning opportunities, pairing compelling content with suggestions for activities and experiences that are both creative and accessible. For example, the 5th - to 6th-grade edition of last week's newsletter noted that November 15 is America Recycles Day. The newsletter offered suggestions to help kids actively understand the importance of recycling, including collecting and weighing all their trash in a given day, imagining the volume of trash produced by 10 families in a neighborhood, and having a family discussion regarding ways to create less waste.
That same newsletter also included supporting links and background on the Navajo Code Talkers of World War II for Veteran's Day, as well as a math game related to the World Series. The coming issue will feature Thanksgiving activities, the Mars Rovers, tweeting astronauts, a watery moon, and even a giant-jellyfish swarm.
