Words are precious things - without them we couldn't communicate the things we know, or learn more about the world around us. In Word Raider, words aren't just tools but also treasure! Explore ancient temples, solve diabolical puzzles, and brave fearsome guardians (well, maybe they aren't that fearsome) to unlock treasure chests, find new words, and add them to your vocabulary!
Created in partnership with educational publishing giant Ballard & Tighe, Word Raider is a game for grades 2 and up that focuses on academic vocabulary words drawn from the Common Core State Standards, introducing them and reinforcing their meanings through gameplay and repetition. Students are encouraged to 'power up' words they've unlocked through minigames that test spelling, comprehension and pronunciation. Teachers (and parents!) can monitor, assist and review their student's progress through the integrated web portal, providing real-world reinforcement to the rewards of the game itself.
