If you liked my last figurative language game, Orpheus the Lyrical, you’re going to LOVE Poetry Cat. Poetry Cat is a brand new reading video game that you can play for free on tablets and desktop computers. Poetry Cat challenges and encourages students to master figurative language techniques and poetic devices. It features fun, compelling, and unique gameplay. Students play a cartoon cat collecting balls of yarn in 50 levels that get progressively harder. They are opposed by dogs, birds, spikes, and other level obstacles. When players get hit, they must answer a question about poetry correctly, or they will die. Trust me, they will get hit a lot. Since the gameplay is very addicting, students will want improve their familiarity with poetic devices so that they can advance in the game.
While Orpheus the Lyrical is a great game, it only covered 4 figurative language techniques: simile, metaphor, personification, and hyperbole. Poetry Cat has a much greater educational scope. It covers 10 poetic devices: simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, understatement, alliteration, allusion, onomatopoeia, rhyme, and repetition. Poetry Cat has a total of 500 examples covering these poetic devices, so students will have to play for a long time before the questions start repeating. Students will be exposed to SO much poetry. The best part is that they won’t even realize it because the gameplay is so much fun. I truly believe that educational video games can help us reach some of our more distant students in ways that worksheets never will. Poetry Cat represents part of my greater effort to make a variety high-quality, free reading video games available to students and educators.
Poetry Cat can be played in any browser for free. It doesn’t work on phones, but it does work on most tablets, and it works on any computer with a modern web browser. It is also available as an application in the App Store. So, if you have iPads in your school, I highly recommend that you get someone to install Poetry Cat on them. It’s free, fun, and educational. Everybody wins. You can also support Ereading Worksheets buy purchasing the ad free version for $2.99. Bulk discounts are available to educational institutions through the App store.
