Glad to have had a small input in The Usborne Foundation‘s Teach Your Monster to Read: First Steps ~ a free online game to help children practice and consolidate the essential first stages of reading.
Aimed at beginner readers, Teach Your Monster to Read: First Steps is built on the principles of synthetic phonics and follows the teaching sequence in the “Letters and Sounds” programme
This inspiring game develops children’s speed, and accuracy of letter recognition, by taking them on a fantastic adventure through a magical world where they meet island kings and collect letters to win prizes. It also explores blending and segmenting, and introduces “tricky” words in a fun, interactive setting. It is aimed at beginning readers, both those who are on track & those who need support. And, it’s great fun too.
If YOU follow a different phonics scheme, there are still some useful games to explore, to fit with other programmes.
