Sumdog Reading helps students aged 6-11 practice their grammar and vocabulary using our fun and engaging activities, with thousands of questions on grammar, punctuation and spelling, aligned to key curricula and standards.
Typical questions involve students being presented with an incomplete sentence, and asked to fill in the blank from a choice of options.
Sumdog Writing lets students practice spelling, grammar and creative writing skills while playing fun, interactive activities together, and also helps students practice their typing skills.
Sumdog Reading covers a range of skills, from capital letters and reading short words, to antonyms and synonyms, to relative pronouns.
Teachers can modify the order of skills to match their lesson plan, and set assessments and challenges to check learning and identify gaps.
With Sumdog ELA teachers have access to powerful reporting that shows each child’s progression through the skills, and can identify any gaps in learning.
I started using Sumdog mid-year and have seen tremendous growth. We use it 15 minutes daily in both Math and Reading.
I never thought an online program could do so much in such short bursts of time. It truly allows the growth mindset of my room to flourish.

Sumdog aims to create a safe and happy space in which students can learn. With Sumdog Writing, students can type words and messages to each other, however we have taken precautions to ensure this remains a fun and positive environment.
Students can only write real words, which must appear in Sumdog’s dictionary. Offensive language has been removed from our dictionary, and students cannot use individual letters to type negative messages.
Students are encouraged to tell their teacher if they are not happy with messages when playing Sumdog Writing.
Students can only practice writing during school when the teacher allows it. In order to play at home, the teacher must get consent from parents using a consent code.
Teachers can also monitor students’ discussions from their dashboard.
