Perfect for homeschooling

Alongside schools and districts, nightzookeeper.com is increasingly being used by homeschooling parents around the world.

Shelly, a homeschooling mother of 7 and 9 year old writes: “As a home educating mom it is a time-saving resource, they can log on and there are lessons already there for the kids. As soon as I suggest the website both kids are happy.

Shelly continues, “The lessons that we have tried have been perfect. Grammar lessons have been to the point with examples attached followed by short exercises for the kids to do.  The comprehensions that we have tried have been on interesting topics.

As children complete lessons and write, they can create and collect more animal characters and grow their Night Zoo. This use of gamification really engages children and inspires them to work independently and improve their writing skills.

Shelly says, “There is never any nagging needed. As soon as I suggest the Night Zookeeper website both kids are happy to log on and they sit for ages doing the lessons and creating.

Shelly’s blog has lots of tips and resources for home educators so do check out the rest of her blog too.
