The summer has started for part of the country and the rest will be joining us soon. With that news means you want to keep those little brains active and energized and the game, educational hunt for buried treasure in BrainChase is going to be perfect. I’ve been looking forward to starting up and just recently received an e-mail that it’s going to begin soon. It’s going to start June 22 and an e-mail will be coming out soon with instructions on how to set up your children’s account and pick their extra language. I can’t wait to get her started. SO…….. You can still register
Alongside the regular pricing package ($199 for the first registration, and then $100 for each sibling), Brain Chase has now begun offering their premium pricing package ($249 for the first registration, and then $149 for each sibling). The premium package includes Brain Chase registration plus a Brain Chase-branded adventure backpack, a Brain Chase t-shirt and Sunstone of Cortés patch. Later in the summer, these items will be available for a la carte purchase.
And….. not worry about being behind.
Maybe…you are worried that your kids are going to spend a week in overnight camp and they will get behind. That’s not the case, BrainChase is flexible. By registering for Brain Chase, your student is committing to do about five hours of focused online academic work each week for five weeks. Because the curriculum is web-based, he or she can complete the work whenever, wherever, and in whatever order he or she prefers. And the characters look really cool. My daughter loves that there are boy and girl characters in the adventure.
Brain Chase is an online challenge, so you’ll need a high-speed Internet connection. It will work on the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari web browsers. You will be able to complete math, language and reading assignments on tablets. (For the writing assignments, it’s recommended to have a desktop or laptop available.)
And don’t forget about the Teacher referral reward program. Brain Chase is offering a $15 Staples gift card to teachers for each of their students they refer to Brain Chase. Registrants who hear about Brain Chase from a teacher can simply enter that teacher’s name and school name at registration. The referral rewards can add up to substantial funding for classroom supplies – it’s a great opportunity for a class fundraiser through the PTA or other school organizations.
A 2011 RAND study explored the phenomenon of summer learning loss and how it can put students behind, which is no surprise – anybody would feel rusty revisiting topics they hadn’t thought about for months. Brain Chase keeps your kids minds active in a fun fun way! Brain Chase understands falling behind – the summer can be busy. Brain Chase allows students to catch up on missed work from previous weeks. Read more about the flexibility of the program through this post on the Brain Chase blog. Also the New York Times published a company profile of Brain Chase, and the team has unveiled a new TV ad, appearing now to audiences throughout the country.
