Make Your Time Count
With Educational Games Part 2
Engaging in educational games to improve learning is a win-win situation because just the action of playing a game puts your body and mind into a more relaxed state. When you are in a relaxed state, it is easier to learn. Think about this, when you are scared or feel that something is hard, it is. Your mind usually becomes closed to the ideas. Your body tenses up. Sometimes your shoulders even rise. You become in a state of fight or flight rather than in a state of receptivity.
So, one of the best ways to improve learning skills is to do a learning activity that is fun and can be done in a relaxed environment. That is what playing educational games do.

Every day we play The Comprehension Zone ends with fun and my children get to learn something without feeling like they are learning.” Marcia B

We’ve tried things similar to this in the past, we’ve been focused on this problem for years, but The Comprehension Zone has been the first activity that has been successful.” Kimberly O
