Straylings has been developed to test the players' mastery of skills, and to identify gaps in the players' knowledge or abilities.The game is just as exciting for those who are good with the skill topic and want to measure their prowess.
We want you to have a growth mindset and use flipped learning principles. Test yourself and learn from your errors. Be alert! One incorrect choice will put you on the wrong path and winning is nigh impossible. Your best strategy is to work out why you made the error and then replay the game.
Straylings can be played alone, or under the supervision of a parent or teacher.
Future updates will include more topics, more creatures and uncover more of the story behind the mysterious Straylings. Play against friends and share achievements and scores.
A dashboard for parents and teachers will share detailed progress for one or more players.
The included grammar skills are the first of many to be released. Future skills will cover a range of different topics including addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, vocabulary, punctuation, spelling, algebra, geometry, statistics and many more.
The grammar skills tested in the Grammar Revision modules are:
Determiners - Articles, Quantifiers and Demonstratives;
Agreements - Subject Verb Agreements and Antecedent Pronoun Agreements;
Forming Questions - W-H questions and Question Tags
This level of grammar revision is for players who already read well in English and want to test their knowledge of and proficiency in various grammar usage skills. It is particularly useful for those preparing for English Language Proficiency Tests and students entering high school.
The rules for Grammar Revision are based on the British Council's Learn English website. The grammarbooks.com site is also very useful.
