For educators

Parents love WORD Force

"Both my kids have really enjoyed the games! Charlie, our kindergartner, was the first to play. He loves the interaction, animation, and silliness...Caroline, our nearly 4-year-old, has also become interested in the games after watching her brother. This morning we worked on rhyming and she had a blast. As two working parents, we are so grateful to EVERFI & Truist for allowing students access to these great tools."

“These reading games are awesome! A few days ago, my 5-year-old did not know how to rhyme and was having trouble with a number of letter sounds. Now he is pointing out the first letter of every object he sees and pretending he is “Robot Pig,” one of the characters in the game. My partner and I were blown away at the change. The diverse characters and silly narratives hooked him instantly, and I feel good knowing that his screentime is active learning time.”
