Designed to teach youngsters important Christmas vocabulary while allowing them to have fun with games, Plume’s School – Saving Christmas is a great app for parents who are looking to teach their child more about the holidays.
Concept and Gameplay:
Plume’s School – Saving Christmas is the story about a witch who steals all of the presents at the North Pole. It’s Plume’s job (and yours) to make sure the presents are returned to the North Pole as quickly as possible. To do this, you need to complete a long line of tasks consisting of quizzes, puzzles, and other challenges.
As kids progress through Plume’s School – Saving Christmas, they’ll earn stars after completing a challenge. These stars count toward earning stickers that can be placed in the interactive sticker book.
Children can also see how well they did on a particular level, as can parents. Games to be played include quizzes, puzzles, memory match, item linking, word scramble, an interactive book, and floating bubbles.
Plume’s School – Saving Christmas uses the Montessori Method of instruction, which is excellent news for parents who are fond of this system of teaching.
Overall, this fantastic app is absolutely packed with activities for children to complete.
The best part about the app is that kids aren’t burdened with which activity they want to complete; everything is organized in a chain that progresses toward the ultimate goal of reaching the witch to get the stolen presents back.
Plume’s School – Saving Christmas includes 75 different challenges to complete. While it might seem like kids would get bored after awhile, I found the activities to be perfectly diverse. Plus, activities will get harder as kids move higher up the chain.
This includes entirely new activities, new vocabulary, and more answers to give.
Another feature that I found to be incredibly useful is the Parent Section. This is where parents can select the language of Plume’s School – Saving Christmas, track their child’s progress with very detailed charts and data, and fine-tune different settings in the app.
Personally I love the fact that Plume’s School – Saving Christmas is available in both French and English because parents of children who are learning French, English, or both have access to a plethora of words.
Plume’s School – Saving Christmas is available to download from the App Store for $0.99, but this price is only valid until Friday, December 20. Plume’s School – Saving Christmas is regularly priced at $1.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.
Parents of youngsters who are actively learning words shouldn’t give Plume’s School – Saving Christmas a second thought; it’s a wonderful game filled with fun activities that will keep children engaged and excited to play.
Plume’s School – Saving Christmas requires iOS 5.1 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
