There was great excitement in the EducationCity.com office today as we launched the much anticipated Literacy Play Live (the sister game of Maths Play Live) throughout the UK!
Literacy Play Live is a word-making game in which pupils test their knowledge of spelling against others within a timed, competitive environment. It is designed to familiarise pupils with words and spelling in an engaging manner. This familiarity, when reinforced with vocabulary activities, boosts reading comprehension.
How it works
The honeycomb grid of letters is full of hidden words and pupils are challenged to find as many words as they can within the grid in 60 seconds.
The winner is the person who scores the most points within the allotted 60 seconds and the leading players are shown on the leaderboard.
Because of the nature of the product and game, we have carried out lots of testing and have created an efficient filter to help ensure offensive and unsuitable words cannot be made helping to create a safe learning environment. You can read more about this in our guidelines.
Play now on Literacy Play Live !
Here at the office we’re hooked, and our testers have offered nothing but praise, so go on, give it a go in your classroom today!
