Parents need to know that BrainPOP Jr. is a pay site that creates online animated curriculum-based content that is aligned to state education standards. BrainPOP Jr. targets kids in kindergarten to third grade. Kids don’t need proficient reading skills to use this audio-heavy site. Lessons all begin with a brief video and include a wide variety of school and life topics. The site includes video, game, quiz, and activity sections for science, health, writing, reading, social studies, and math based on national education standards. There’s also a companion site for older kids, a game site called GameUp, and a Spanish language site. Families pay $85 a year or $8.45 a month for access; homeschooling families, schools, and other organizations pay more.
