Student Websites for Literacy or Word Work Practice Blog Hop!


Have you heard of GameGoo?


GameGoo comes from the makers of Earobics, a leader in language and literacy software. From the website: "GameGoo is home for fun, stick-with-you educational games, that help students build early reading skills, identified as important education building blocks in state curriculum standards. This means that when students play the GameGoo games they are practicing skills they are learning in class. The games are also based solidly in education and literacy research, full of rich stories and characters to engage students in learning adventures".


The games at GameGoo are specifically geared toward K-2 and truly do target those early reading skills. My kiddos love using GameGoo in my classroom as part of literacy workstations. Take a look at this video review:
