We believe Three Things is a great learning game for many reasons. Here are three of them:

3_things1. Three Things supports vocabulary development. A strong vocabulary is a central component of literacy development, particularly in terms of reading comprehension. Quite simply, the more you know, the more you can know.

2. Three Things builds higher-order thinking skills, like sorting, categorizing, and classifying. The four-box configuration used in Three Things mirrors the "four square" visual organizer many elementary school teachers use to help students at all levels manage and organize information. It happens to be prettier than your average four-square organizer, but we think that's a great bonus.

3. Three Things prepares individualized data reports to show progress on the game's measurable learning objectives. Parents and teachers can easily see how much time their children are spending on different areas of the game and how proficient they are with each of them.
