Simple steps to get kids playing 'Teach Your Monster to Read' at home.

As a result of school closures and disruption due to coronavirus, we’ll make Teach Your Monster to Read completely free across the world, in order to help children learn to read whilst at home.

We want to help out as much as we can, so we’ve made Teach Your Monster to Read completely free until Monday March 23rd on Apple (today) and Amazon (from Thursday) as well as at teachyourmonstertoread.com. It’s also just 0.99 on Google Play Store*.

This means if anyone downloads it to their device for free this week, it will cost them nothing and it will be free to continue to use on that device thereafter.

It’s easy to get kids playing at home. There are 2 ways:

1) If you don’t want to track students’ progress:
Simply share this page with parents. Kids can then get playing straight away, with no passwords required. 

You could post this message to parents:"We use Teach Monster to help kids learn to read in school and it's been made free to use at home due to coronavirus disruption. Download free this week on Apple: apple.co/2V92VL5, on Amazon (from Thurs) https://amzn.to/2VgOwfR, or 0.99 on Android: bit.ly/2cohkeR"

2) If you want to track students’ progress:
Login or sign up at teachyourmonstertoread.com. Set up every child as a player on our website. Print off and send home their password cards (which can be downloaded from your dashboard). Kids can then log in to their player accounts on our website or app. You can see their progress on your dashboard.

*Due to Google Play Store policy not allowing a new sale to start within 30 days after the completion date of the last sale, we’re unable to give our app away for free on Google Play Store because we just recently ran a free promotion. For this reason we've priced it at £0.99 / $0.99.

Teach Your Monster to Read FREE across the world, to ease school-closure disruption due to Coronavirus (NOW ENDED)

(UPDATE: This offer has now ended, although the app may be available at a discounted rate below the standard $4.99 / £4.99 price point)

As a result of school closures and disruption due to coronavirus, we have decided to make Teach Your Monster to Read completely free across the world, in order to help children learn to read whilst at home.

Our award-winning phonics and reading games have been played over 160 million times and are used by thousands of teachers as part of their phonics and literacy education.

The app has recently been approved by the UK Department for Education’s Hungry Little Minds campaign to help parents find high quality educational apps for kids. 

With children learning from home due to school closures and self-isolation cases, as a not-for-profit, we want to do what we can to mitigate the disruption and help children continue learning. Millions of children use the app every month and we want to make sure every child can access it at home.
