Web Tool Wednesday: Teach Your Monster to Read (thanks @TCEA!) #BISDwired

This week TCEA shared a fabulous new tool called Teach Your Monster to Read!
Students create a monster and take it on an adventure through a magical world. They travel to exciting places, meet fun characters, play games, and win prizes as their monster learns the first steps of reading. Mini-games help them develop speed and accuracy in letter recognition. There is also reading for purpose with magical, little books.
You can read more details here on the TCEA website or check out the tool here.  A fun follow up would be to let your kids create their own digital monster.  Here are 3 tools you could use:
