EdAlive - Words Rock Online Review



Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.

We recently had the opportunity to review Words Rock Online from EdAlive.  Caty has found the game style approach to vocabulary a definite relief from book work.

 


EdAlive is an Australian based online learning company that has received many educational awards for their work in creating excellent teaching games for students of all grade levels and ages. 


Words Rock Online (Ages 5 – 15 and beyond) adapts to student’s skills as they really get to dig into vocabulary. As they play these vocabulary-based games, they can earn achievements. It allows students to improve on their vocabulary to express their thoughts with clear and meaningful texts. With Words Rock Online, students are awarded with Agent cards for their achievements. This reward system encourages students to keep playing as the game continues to adjust to each individual student’s learning levels.


Words Rock Online covers:

· Spelling

· Grammar

· Punctuation

· Vocabulary

· Pre-literacy


Words Rock Online also adapts to student’s abilities.  As they play this vocabulary bases game, they also earn achievements.  It allows students to improve on their vocabulary to express their thoughts with clear and meaningful texts.  


Students can play vs. the computer or other students.



With Words Rock Online, students are awarded Agent cards for their achievements.  This reward system encourages students to continue as it continues to adjust to each individual student’s learning levels.




The games were created to help the students to learn through repetition and just being cute with pictures and activities that will draw their attention.



I can see an achievement report for Caty to make sure she is playing and working.
Students can mark questions as being too difficult.  This will allow the game to adjust to their abilities, and as they improve the questions will become more difficult again.


Words Rock Online was not created to be a sole curriculum for students, but to provide them extra practice and allow them "game" time away from textbooks.  So it is definitely meant as supplemental material.


Caty has been using this a few weeks now, and she has made some improvements in her sentence creation.  I am going to keep her "playing" this summer as we continue to work on her language arts delays.

 

EdAlive has created all of these programs to work through several different web browsers and computer and mobile devices.   Caty is able to play on her tablet through her browser.  No need to worry about downloading separate apps for each system that your child may use.
