Feed the Hungry While Learning for Free

My sons are playing vocabulary games from this site called FreeRice.com.  They love it.  At first they are only learning about vocabulary words, then Math.  They used to have only the vocabulary games on this site but now they also cover subjects like Art, Chemistry, English, Geography, Language Learning and Math.
Just look at how learning new vocabulary (and the other subjects) can benefit your kids:
  • Formulate ideas better
  • Write better papers, essays and writing composition
  • Speak more precisely and persuasively
  • Comprehend more of what they read
  • Read faster because they comprehend better
  • Get better grades in high school, college and graduate school
  • Score higher on tests like the SAT, GRE, LSAT and GMAT

What's great about playing here is that for each correct answer you get, they will donate 10 grains of rice through the UN World Food Hunger Program to help end hunger.  My sons have already donated a total of 9,500 grains of rice.  And we learned that we get to help our country, the Philippines, through this program. That is wonderful!

Not only are they getting smarter playing the games but they actually build their character in the aspect of sharing, giving and social responsibility.  Why not help end world hunger at the same time help your kids become smarter. Play for free!
