Arcademic Skill Builders is a website which focuses on cross-curricular skill-building for grades 1-6. The arcade-style games on this free website reinforce skills or factual concepts which  you might be teaching in your classrooms. The games range from addition to algebra, money, geography,  spelling, and word relationships.  Most importantly to students, these games are fun and personally competitive. They can try to beat their own scores or play against each other.

Mission: Engage and Excite Students

Arcademic Skill Builders are online educational video games that offer a powerful approach tolearning basic math, language arts, vocabulary, and thinking skills.

Our philosophy is inspired by the intense engagement arcade and video games foster between the player and the game. The Arcademic goal is to make aspects of classroom instruction as effective in creating persistence and involvement as observed in video game players. Our games are a result of blending video game features into instructional research in order to achieve a high rate of student learning through increased time-on-task and engagement. Students must employ strategy under exciting circumstances to make rapid responses while being given immediate feedback on their decisions.

These educational games provide fun and focused repetition practice that enables automaticity and fluency to be achieved more quickly. With what we now know about automaticity and fluency in academic performance, we can help students achieve masterful levels performance faster than ever before!

Student Safety

Your students are completely safe while playing the games. It is impossible for anyone outside your class to contact a student while playing the games. In our multiplayer games, if the student starts a ‘private’ game, then only players that know the password (created by the student) can join the game. All other players are not allowed to join that game. If the student starts a ‘public’ game, then any player from outside can join the game, but there is no contact between outside players and the student. We do not store the player ID’s that the student creates. We monitor player names and block inappropriate names created by the student.
