WORDSMART USES THE MAGIC OF INTERACTIVE STORYTELLING. Our fun and child-centred tasks are embedded in a fantastical story. Kids feel joy & excitement when joining our characters Tama & Tracey on their adventures. The interactive story motivates them to keep going even if tasks become more challenging.

WORDSMART TRIGGERS THE CHILD’S LEARNING SWEET SPOT. Our tasks stimulate the child’s analytical as well as their creative side. Each phoneme is introduced with a unique and funny short story. Children create a meaningful connection with the learning content. The young learner retains acquired knowledge better and learns faster.

WORDSMART ENCOURAGES HEALTHY BEHAVIOURS IN YOUNG LEARNERS. We have taken learning-to-read one step further. Our digital learning environment supports psychological well-being in a holistic way. Unique mindfulness activities are an integral part of the child’s learning journey. We use strategies to support and strengthen healthy core beliefs so that children experience positive emotions while learning.

Miss Teacher P ,

Good learning for Kids

Good to see Mindfulness in a learn to read app. The kids really like the games and seem to picking up the letter sounds. Love the NZ feel to the learning experience.
