'Teach your Monster to read' game nominated for BAFTA

24th October 2013

Teach your monster to read

We are delighted to announce that Teach Your Monster to Read: First steps has been nominated for a BAFTA award.  The online game, developed by the Usborne Foundation has been developed to help children practice reading using the principles of synthetic phonics. Peter Usborne said the news is about "as good as it gets".

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) announced the nominations for its annual British Academy Children’s Awards, which honour the very best in children’s media on the 22 October 2013.

Teach Your Monster to Read: First steps, along with its follow-up game; Teach your Monster to Read: Fun with Words are making a real difference and, doing unexpectedly well in the American market (a market for which they were not designed for) as Phonics is taught differently in the United States.

A third (and final) game in the series is currently in development.

Share these great online games with family and friends now.
