Free Educational Game for Elementary Students – TeachersDungeon is a standards based game with video tutorials.

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for choosing to use TeachersDungeon as a part of your children’s learning plan.  My dream is to give back to the world through the gift of my free educational game.  By using this game, you are helping fulfill my dream – Thanks!

An Introduction to the TeachersDungeon

TeachersDungeon is an educational fantasy game that self-adjusts to each child’s level of academic ability, has video tutorials that correspond to specific questions, and gives teachers, parents, and the players access to all the educational statistics.

Children battle the dragon that rules over TeachersDungeon.  They earn magical crystals by answering standards-based questions correctly.  Crystals are used to save pets, people and mythical creatures from the dungeon.   Players start as a blacksmith and work their way to king or queen.  Children can even “Explain their Reasoning” – one of the most crucial aspects of the common core educational standards.  For more information on how children can explain their reasoning, go to item (six) below and read – Teach your students how to create a convince me tutorial.

This is an introduction to TeachersDungeon.  It includes quick videos that show teachers, parents, and children how to use the different aspects of TeachersDungeon.

INVITE YOUR PARENT TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN!
Your students’ parents can create their own account.  They can even link their parent account to their child’s account that you created for your class.

Here’s how…
Copy & paste the following email.
I like to type each students name and personalize each email.  However, you could make this email generic and just type “your child” in place of “student name”.  You could even print it out and have the students write their user name & password on the paper.  But to be honest, making the email personal is much more effective and it’s pretty quick and easy.

RE: Extra Credit for (Student’s name)

Hello (Parent’s name)

I wanted to let you know about an extra credit opportunity.  I am using an educational game called, TeachersDungeon.  The game is completely free for teachers, parents, and students.  It has questions that are aligned to the common core educational standards, and even show tutorial videos when children get a question wrong.  I am giving all my students extra credit points for playing the game.

You can help motivate (Student name).  Create your own parent account – it’s 100% FREE.  Challenge (Student’s name) to play the game every night for 15 to 20 minutes.  You can even give your own reward, like pizza for dinner or free-time playing a favorite video game.
