WORD Force: A Literacy Adventure is an excellent tool to help improve reading. These fun, free reading games give students the foundational reading skills they need in a fun, engaging practice that you can use as an enrichment or alongside your current reading program. If you’re in elementary school, this tool is a win for you; the kids will love it. Parents will too!
What Reading Skills Does WORD Force Teach?
WORD Force is a research-based early literacy course that is free for teachers. Targeted to students in kindergarten through second grade, this is an excellent free course to use to teach:
- Phonological awareness skills like rhyming (cat, sat)
- Phonics skills like putting alphabet letters together to make written words
- Spelling words like cat, sock, bike, and rain
- Vocabulary building to know and use many words
- Reading comprehension skills to understand the meaning of stories
The students are playing games, but as a teacher, you'll have lesson plans, activities, and discussion guides to accompany the lessons.
Additionally, you can recommend this to parents for them to play with their children at home. What a fun way to practice reading and learn together!
