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.
Next 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.
