A Monster Ate My…

Story Monster

Ever wanted to eat your words? We’ve launched a fun online game that lets you do just that!

Developed with support from the Telematics Course Development Fund, Story Monster uses the moving image to promote learning and literacy skills. Designed for primary school students, the game is loads of fun for grown-ups too (and is a great way to brush up on grammar).

Story Monster

When you start the game, you’ll design your very own monster, then lead it through different ‘themed’ worlds, including science fiction, adventure and fantasy. Your objective? To feed your monster a tasty assortment of words. But be careful: your monster can only eat well-formed sentences. Put a verb where an adjective should go and you’ll need to start over.

Once your sentence is complete, your monster will act it out for you. It’s so much fun, kids won’t even realise they’re learning.

Head on over to the Story Monster to check it out.

    This is a FABULOUS way to engage younger students when learning the grammatical conventions of the English language. Thanks ACMI for yet another great educational resource!

    This is such a great resource – my two boys (3 and 6) absolutely love it and for the 6 year old in particular it’s great for teaching about parts of speech. They couldn’t get enough of the vomiting and farting and I really appreciated the resource material which explains how it fits into the national curriculum and suggests other activities. I’ll be telling my older boy’s school about this so they can suggest it to other parents/use it in the classroom etc. Thanks so much for such a fun and creative activity!
