Teach Your Monster to Read Competition
Reading is a much talked about subject in this house, having a 5 year old I guess it’s inevitable! J got on pretty well in reception but since going back into year 1 he has really clicked with his reading and is loving it.
The only problem we have is that his school books only get changed once a week and so he gets really bored of them. We are always trying to find new ways to keep him enthusiastic. We have recently been introduced to Teach Your Monster To Read, a fun interactive reading game for little ones to enjoy. It’s also absolutely free!
It gets them excited right from the start by letting the child design their own monster, J loved this part and obviously his monster had to be green!
Once created, your child’s monster goes on a journey of letter recognition, blending and onto some tricky words. The level was one that J was comfortable with and whilst I’m not sure of how much new information he gained as yet, it has been great for reinforcing everything he learnt last year and building his confidence.
The colours and animations really capture the imagination and he was able to complete the tasks by himself which helps to improve his computer skills too.
To celebrate half term Teach Your Monster To Read have a great competition for your little monsters to enter! You could win £150 of Usborne books of your choice and all you have to do is get your child to create their very own monster (draw, paint or build) and send a picture of it to firstname.lastname@example.org
For full details see here – be quick though you only have until next Friday (9th) at 5pm to enter!
