WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING. . .

Read real reviews and comments about eWriting For Kids!

This is an AMAZING Game!
I love it (Win Them Over!) and so do the children I have tried it with.

Stephen R. - United Kingdom

A fun 3D game (Win Them Over!) used to teach writing. The game is engaging and innovative. Strengths: Innovative, teaches writing (which is rare to find) Free, Instructor Resource/Support provided. Self-paced, can be used in formal and informal settings. I think it is great that while everyone is developing STEM teaching games, this game realizes the importance of writing. I have seen a decline in writing skills among students and I feel this game is a great way to tackle issues such as poor communication skills in our youth.

Judge feedback, SIIA CODiE Awards 2017

The value is nearly immeasurable. I had a more than a few kids come up and say either ``Hey, that was (writing) actually fun!`` or ``I like writing when I can write about what I want.`` The best feature was allowing the children to discover their strengths and weaknesses regarding Descriptive Writing. It improves grammar, reading skills, and of course allows the kids to further expand on their imagination and creativity.
