motivating online resource for primary students to develop great literacy
skills. Students log in and customise their own avatar. As they participate in
literacy games and activities (phonics, spelling word searches, comprehension
activities and more), they earn credits to purchase new outfits and accessories
for their avatar.
Pre-reading, phonics, spelling, vocabulary, reading fluency, grammar and comprehension skills are all covered in this online resource. The learning exercises have been designed by some of Australia’s most respected educators.
Inside the program, you’ll find the Academy, where self-paced learning occurs; the Arena, where students compete against each other in literacy challenges; Home, where they customise their avatar and view their awards; Shop, where they spend their virtual credit and the Arcade, filled with games as a reward and incentive.
Literacy Planet caters for all students and enhances classroom learning. It has been found to be helpful for students with learning difficulties: ADD, ADHD, dyslexia or short-term memory problems.
Literact Planet also has an app which is free to download but requires an online account to be able to access the games and activities. Check out the pricing for parents, schools or tutors.
