Zoo Whiz is Learning Fun


Hi neighbors!

So glad to see you today At the Fence. We have been the chance to review Zoo Whiz. My daughter really enjoys this. Zoo Whiz is an online, interactive, educational site that she actually asks to use.  There is a free Zoo Whiz you can try out, but it is well worth the $14.95 price tag for a years worth of use for the Zoo Whiz Premium account!
They get to choose a zoo keeper.
What Zoo Whiz looks like!

As the parent you control the level of learning they are allowed on. If you feel that the work is too easy or too hard, you can go in and change the settings. I personally used Zoo Whiz for quiet, seat work. She had to wear headphones, but she was able to sit there and work on her own while I was busy with someone else. It was also good for reinforcing lessons she has already learned.




As she works on a lesson she is given two chances to answer correctly. If they still get something wrong they then give the correct answer. By completing the work correctly she earned 20 coins which she can later use to purchase animals for her zoo. If she answered incorrectly the first time and then correctly the second she received 10 coins. This is used as incentive and it made learning fun. The coins can also be used for opening new games. The only thing she would like to see changed is the ability to take care of the animals.

The classes they teach are math, reading, and words. The child can work in whichever subject they chose. I set up time limits for each and then allow some fun time to purchase animals or to play a game.  It is very easy for the child to focus on the fun if you do not watch and limit their time.

Zoo Whiz has been a big help to my daughter.  And I recommend this program to my neighbors! Maybe some grandparents would like to get this as a gift for their grandchildren!  Great idea!  Be sure to see what other Crew Members have to say about Zoo Whiz, by clicking on the banner below!

What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes).
