Finding Success in Numbers

by on August 1, 2014


In celebration of My Family Farm in FarmVille 2, we asked players how they connect with each other in the game. Melissa shared her amazing story with us about how she uses FarmVille 2 to help her son with math and connect with her family.

I’d heard that FarmVille 2 was helping some of the parents at my son’s school teach their kids math. My 10 year old son has ADHD, so I started playing the game and letting him watch as me, my 16 year old daughter and my 10 month old watched on. We’re all involved ;)!

Since playing FarmVille 2, my son’s math skills have drastically increased – his grades improving from C’s to A-/B+. I love that he’s learning through a game he enjoys without thinking of it as ‘homework’.  For me personally, FarmVille 2 reminds me of my grandmother’s farm in Burnet, TX and brings back nostalgia of my experience growing up and visiting her farm. It’s given my daughter a way for her to connect with her grandparents, as they discuss gardening and food – and it’s helped my kids understand food better and the process behind making meals.

FarmVille 2 has really made a huge impact on all our lives and I can’t thank you enough for creating a game that has brought our family closer.
