We require a person to be the Teach Your Monster to Read monster for the day!
We’re looking for someone to wear the monster mascot costume in a London school on the morning of 15th May 2015. It will be a fun day, interacting with children and teachers and you’ll be promoting the new and free Teach You Monster to Read game, Champion Reader.
The costume is made for someone over 5’6″ tall. We also require the person to have an up-to-date DBS check for this role.
Please get in touch if you are interested in this paid position: [email protected]
Thanks to TishyWishy on Pinterest for suggesting this simple and active way of rehearsing the Tricky Words – Skittles!
This is a great one to do outside in the sunshine!

Fantastic news! Teach Your Monster to Read has reached 3 million game plays. Thank you to all our fans for playing and sharing the game.
When a child is half way through Teach Your Monster to Read: First Steps, you can now download a letter from their monster.
In the letter, the monster thanks the child for helping it on its reading journey. It also encourages the player to complete the rest of the Teach Your Monster to Read games so it can keep learning its letters and sounds.
Just log into your account, find the player’s name and click the ‘Monster letter’ link to download and print the letter.
We’d like to hear what parents think of this new feature. Just send us an email to [email protected] or make a comment in the box below.
Share your monster letters online – we’d love to see them!
