Best Books: Trapped In a Video Game

Do you have a kid that loves video games but isn’t very interested at reading? We may have found the perfect book series for them! Trapped in a Video Game is an incredible series that follows the young Jesse Rigsby as he navigates his way through the harsh years of adolescence with one major complication — a video game character is trying to kill him.

Jesse and his best friend Eric have discovered a new game, Full Blast, and cannot wait to try it. However, they find themselves sucked directly in to the game and find they have to play to survive when a mysterious figure begins to follow them and kill them.

The series contains 5 books and each book contains an interactive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) section at the end that allows readers to learn and understand binary coding and algorithms. Now they can understand how their favorite games function and start learning how to create their own video games. One series is helping them to not only nurture a love for reading but also give them the opportunity to learn and practice STEM activities at home for fun!

Give A Dog A Bone

Preschoolers are busy, busy, kids. They want to be on the go all day long. So it can be nice to slow them down occasionally with some learning and interactive activities every now and then. Since my kids only attend preschool 3 days a week I enjoy doing learning activities and lessons with them at home several times a week. One of the best resources I have for downloading lesson plans and activities for my kids is Danielle’s Place.

Danielle’s Place offers low cost printable lesson plans and patterns for preschool activities. They offer lessons for Math, Spelling, Science, Art, and the Bible. You can pay per download, or begin an annual subscription. There are hundreds of great learning activities to do with your preschooler, so be sure to check them all out.

We are especially fond of the Give a Dog a Bone activity. It combines music, arts, and math. A multi-interactive learning activity is perfect for preschoolers because it keep them busy and it helps them to activate different parts of the brain for a better learning response.
