Captain Huggy Face vs. The Butcher

The Butcher is at it again, and this time the meat is aimed at Captain Huggy Face! Players must be quick to fend off the Butcher’s meat attack to win. While players train their superhero reflex skills they will also focus on vocabulary within content categories. Players will be asked to identify and categorize words.

WordGirl vs. Chuck the Evil Sandwich Making Guy

Thwart Chuck the Evil Sandwich Making Guy and save City Hall by building the perfect sandwich! Be careful – Chuck has designed a mischievously tricky sandwich order for players to follow. This game focuses on prepositions and sequential language. Players will utilize skills in listening, critical thinking, and logic to solve each level.

WordGirl vs. Dr. Two Brains

Dr. Two Brains is at it again with his cheese ray! Can you stop him before he turns the world to cheese? Players will train their superhero navigation skills as they move WordGirl through a maze of portals to find Dr. Two Brains. Within the maze, players will encounter new vocabulary in synonym word pairings. Players will see and hear the various words isolated and in context to aid in vocabulary development.
