7 Computer Games That Teach Reading

Children love to play computer games and don't like to study — that's a fact. Parents still try to download educational games to their children's tablets. First, the children, of course, play them, but soon, they become bored. Therefore, if you couldn’t tear your child away from the computer, slip them something exciting but with cognitive elements, for example, teaching reading.

Glutton Caterpillars

The little caterpillar dreams of becoming a beautiful butterfly, but for this, she needs to eat right. First, you need to feed her with leaves with the letter ‘A,’ then with the letter ‘O,’ etc. Then, a miracle will happen – the caterpillar will turn into a butterfly, and the child will learn all the letters!

Sleeping Beauty

This is not a simple game but a magical one. It turns absolutely all non-reading kids into readers. Age does not matter. It will be useful both for kids of two years old and for older children. It will not only teach them to read but will help to develop the skill of confident, fast, and meaningful reading.


The child will play as a Neanderthal named Ungh, who has to go on a journey full of interesting adventures to get fire for the village. During the journey, he will have to solve riddles of varying complexity and pass tests, developing mindfulness and logical thinking.
