Teach your Monster to Read: First Steps is a new, free game to practise the first steps of reading.

Combining top quality games design with essential learning, the game is built on the principles of synthetic phonics and follows the teaching sequence of the Letters and Sounds programme.

It has been funded by a charity founded by Peter Usborne (of Usborne Publishing), and is free to play.

The game develops children’s speed and accuracy of letter recognition by taking them on a fantastic adventure through a magical world where they meet island kings and collect letters to win prizes.

It’s featured in the Sunday Times, the Times Educational Supplement, won Gold in both the Practical Preschool and Primary Teacher Update awards and was a finalist in the 2013 Bett Awards.

Teach your monster to read is an online resource
