Story Monster is a fun online literacy game that uses the moving image to promote student learning.
In the game, you'll design a hungry monster who loves to gobble up words. But your monster will need help with what to eat - he can only be fed well-structured sentences.
When a complete sentence has been eaten, your monster will act it out for you. At the end of the game, you can add your monster to a gallery for others to admire.
