Ereading Games

Ereading Games are free educational video games designed to give students helpful practice with reading skills. These games are completely free of cost and provide genuine educational experiences. I worked hard to make these games fun and engaging, so that students are compelled to learn each reading skill to better progress in the game. They will have so much fun playing, that they won't even realize how much they are learning. These games cover ELA skills from the Common Core State Standards, such as poetic devices, parts of speech, sentence structure, and figurative language. I am committed to adding more games and skills to this site.

Super Grammar Ninja is a throwback to classic video gaming titles such as Mega Man and The Adventures of Link, but with an educational twist. Players fight their way through five worlds while reviewing parts of speech and sentence structure concepts. Each world has a different focus and students will have the opportunity to learn and review the material at virtual schools along the way. Players collect powerups and learn secret abilities during the course of play and unlocking all of the ninja powers is half of the fun. This video game is a great way to prepare for the language arts portion of the Explore, Plan, and ACT tests. Language learners and those seeking to better understand their own language will find the play just as compelling as old school gamers. I hope you will enjoy it.
