The Ramen Sensei is a game in which the player opens a brand new ramen shop in the corner of a small town. By creating bowls of ramen for locals to come and eat, the player earns experience points and money, allowing them to add even more items to their menu. 

Players can choose different broths, noodle types, and toppings to create their own custom bowls of ramen. Depending on the ingredients used, the difficulty in properly crafting the dish can be raised or lowered, affecting your overall score. 

Players can invest in different ingredients, hire additional staff, change the decor of the ramen shop, and use their employees special powers to enhance the scores the player receives for their food. 

The player can also enter contests where they compare their ramen creations against other people and earn a better reputation. 

The Ramen Sensei helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Organization: Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.

The Ramen Sensei has a lot of different activities going on at the same time; the player needs to manage their workforce, create new dishes, invest in new ingredients, keep their shop’s decor up to date, etc. All of this requires organization; the player needs to keep track of these various tasks and put them in order of priority. Players who struggle with organizing may find themselves overwhelmed by the number of tasks required to successfully run the shop and earn money. These players should start slow and not try to do too many tasks at the same time. They can then build up to adding additional tasks .

Planning: Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.

Much of the success in The Ramen Sensei is the result of good planning. When you begin the game, you receive a certain amount of “seed money” to help you get started. By using this money wisely, the player can ensure that they hire new staff, stock up on ingredients, and craft new and innovative bowls of ramen. Players who struggle with planning ahead may find themselves running out of money sooner than they expected and struggling to generate enough profits to make new bowls of ramen, offer side dishes, or invest in new ingredients. To be successful, these players should start slow and focus on one thing at a time, keeping track of how much they are spending versus how much experience they are getting from that investment.
