The Word Monsters on Kindertown

It's been a great week for MindConnex Learning and our brand new series The Word Monsters!

Last Tuesday we launched in the App Store and the next day The Word Monsters was available on Google Play. Before the press release was even out we were already getting fantastic reviews and on Thursday we were featured in the US App Store and saw our ranking skyrocket.

All in all a good start. 

So exactly one week after the official release we are thrilled to have been taken on by KinderTown.

An educational app store for parents KinderTown is a fantastic tool that curates the education category of iTunes. 

Kinderown Logo"We work hard to find the best educational apps for children. Each app we select for KinderTown has been tested and reviewed by educators, parents, and most importantly, children. Not all, or even most of the apps meet our high standards. We take many factors into account including educational value, ease of use, engagement value, design features, artwork, cost, and shelf life."

We're pleased, though not surprised, that The Word Monsters meets KinderTown's standards and we're looking forward to developing similar relationships in the coming weeks. 

Week one was certainly action packed - can't wait to see what's in store for week two!

Something for the Younger Kids

The last few months have seen big shifts in focus for all of us here at MindConnex. Through Shakespeare In Bits we have demonstrated that we aim to develop high quality, rich, engaging material. The Bard’s works offered the perfect content for developing a full multimedia learning experience that has proven popular and highly successful in the classroom; and while MindConnex Learning will continue to add plays to Shakespeare In Bits we have decided to move the focus of our talents on to a very different audience.

Word Monsters Introductory ImageNext month MindConnex Learning will launch The Word Monsters: an interactive, multimedia, decodable reading series developed in accordance with the Common Core State Standards. Like Shakespeare In Bits, The Word Monsters has a complete pedagogical framework designed to help both parents and teachers when introducing children to the written word. Every story builds on decodable (consonant-vowel-consonant) words, introduces high frequency words, is jam packed with interactive animations and contains three activities that correlate to the three main strands of the Common Core Standards: Foundational Skills, Language and Literature.

With The Word Monsters we aim to create a series of decodable readers that not only help young children to learn to read, but engage and delight them so that they develop a lifelong love of reading.

Watch this space for more updates on The Word Monsters.
