Super Jump – a new mini game in Teach Your Monster to Read 3: Champion Reader

Teach Your Monster to Read super jump

The monster is on its quest to find the Goblin Prince and is exploring the new planets.

It comes across a yellow trampoline. Of course the monster cannot resist having a jump around, but on its first jump, it shoots off into another dimension.

The monster now finds itself flying through the sky in a meteor shower. Watch out!

The monster must now find the right sounds on the meteors to make the word and get to the next part of the game.

It’s not as easy as it sounds. Good luck monsters!

This game helps rehearse segmenting using a target grapheme.

Teach Your Monster to Read 3 launches on 4th June 2015.

Teach Your Monster to Read and defeat the evil Goblin Prince!

New Characters in Teach Your Monster to Read

The monster has found itself in a galaxy ruled by a horrible Goblin Prince. The Goblin Prince is round and green. He wears armour and comes complete with a villainous cackle.

The monster’s mission (should it choose to accept it) is to banish the Goblin Prince from the galaxy and prevent him causing more trouble in the universe.

Helped by his friend Jessica, the monster must work through all the reading challenges on the planet, collect stars and read the spell book to banish the Goblin Prince once and for all.

Just watch out for the Goblin’s henchmen. They look tough, but they are really scaredy-cats!

Characters from teach your monster to read

Jessica is a very wise woman. She is purple and sparkly and has luscious long white hair topped of with a starry hat. Wow, she’s magical!

Luckily Jessica is the monster’s friend and guide in this new adventure. She helps the monster through the maze-like planets, advising it which direction to go and providing hints about what it should do next.

Jessica also keeps a careful eye out for danger. She warns the monster when the pesky Goblin Prince is about to appear and helps the monster to catch him. Listen to Jessica, she is very smart.

Defeat the dragon in Champion Reader!

FBpromo_dragon_v2

The dragon is a funny and fiery new addition to Teach Your Monster to Read. He’s blue and scaly and rocks back and forth on a spring! Watch out, though, because he breathes out fiery words which the monster must read and understand.

In order to defeat the dragon the monsters must find the correct sound in the words.

This is a great game for rehearsing the different ways of spelling the phonemes (sounds). For example, the dragon breathes out the words ‘burger’ and ‘bird’ and the monster must identify the same sound in each e.g. /ur/ and /ir/. If he doesn’t get the sound right then the dragon breathes out a new word with the sound again.

New game launches this June!

Ms Jangle and Ms Jumble on Teach Your Monster to Read

Ms Jangle and Ms Jumble are new characters in the Teach Your Monster to Read series, launching this June, and they are ready to offer fresh reading challenges to our eager monsters.

They are the slightly clumsy and dotty caretakers of the planets and are very forgetful  – they are always losing their sounds!

The monster must find these sounds (which are written on their marbles) and make sure they give the right ones to the right person. If Ms Jumble and Ms Jangle receive the correct sound, then they lift off their top hats and gobble down the sound. Slllluuuurrrp!!!

This game is a fantastic way of introducing children to the new spellings for the letter-sounds. At this stage, children will already know that the phoneme /ai/ can be spelled ‘ai’. Now they will learn that it can also be spelled ‘ay’, ‘eigh’ (as in ‘eight’) and ‘ey’ (as in ‘they’).

This game also helps with their understanding of alternative pronunciations of letters, such as /i/ as in ‘fin’ and /i/ as in ‘find’.

Teach Your Monster to Read 3 launches on 4th June 2015.
