Our badges reward students and classrooms instantly!

These are student’s individual benchmarks. As they progress through the game, we award different badges as they reach new levels of word count.

These are classroom or program stats. Your students work together to reach a collective goal of one million words.

Don’t stop at one million words! By playing more of our games (we have over 32!), you have a chance to be one of the top classrooms in the country.
