Help Our Brains POP with BrainPOP Jr.

My students need classroom subscriptions to BrainPOP Jr. to engage them and motivate learning.

My Students

Brain research shows the first few minutes of instruction are the key to hooking students and focusing their attention. BrainPOP Jr. provides short animated videos that grab the students' attention and are a perfect addition to lessons in all subject areas.

We have 5 second grade classes with over 150 students at our school.

The majority are English language learners whose families immigrated here looking for better lives for their children. The area around our school is high poverty and students arrive to school in various states of readiness to learn depending on home conditions. In order to engage these struggling students, teachers must not only make the students feel safe and welcome, we must utilize a variety of strategies to focus their attention and help them commit important knowledge into their memories.

My Project

With subscriptions to BrainPOP Jr., our students will have their visual memories stimulated and their attention grabbed whether working individually, in small groups, or a whole group setting. BrainPOP Jr. provides standards-based content in all academic areas. Students will be able to learn about animal classifications for a science project or reinforce place value concepts during math.

BrainPOP Jr.

will allow our second grade students to receive instruction enhanced with animations providing the most effective way to create long term memories. Having an extra visual aid to reinforce what they learn will help ensure understanding and retention.
