Mobile Games to Enrich Primary School Materials

I am super excited about the two new mobile games to enrich Sanoma Pro’s existing materials. Both collaborations are graduates of the EnhancEDU startup program.

The first of them, Ihmepupu* (in English Wonderbunny), is a mathematics game where a rabbit dashes trough colorful scenes while completing exercises. The other one is called Peikkoleiri* (Goblin Camp). It is a Finnish grammar game for natives, where the goblin has to prove knowledge of spelling, compound words, etc. in order to advance.

Both games are in Finnish and for Finnish pupils (although there is a common core aligned version of Wonderbunny in English). They are based on Sanoma Pro’s Finnish K-12 curriculum aligned content. Ihmepupu follows the structure of the Kymppi method, whereas Peikkoleiri is based on our Välkky method.

Currently Ihmepupu is for 1st graders and Peikkoleiri for 3rd graders, but both are looking for rolling out new also grade levels. At least Fantastec, the creator of Ihmepupu, is planning to launch also 2nd and 3rd grade games still during the spring of 2015.

Check out the introduction videos of these two fine games, and find the download links for both below (for Android and iOS, respectively). Enjoy!
