  • Skills to develop:Children will learn to read and write bigger numbers in thousands as words.  Please note that in the US, we do not add ‘and’ before the last number in big numbers, but in British English, bigger numbers in the thousands are written with ‘and’ towards the end. For instance, 3,355 is written ‘three thousand three hundred and fifty-five’, whereas North Americans often drop the ‘and’. To be inclusive of our global audiences, we adopt the British approach in this game.
  • The Monkey Isle Game is a time-limited game of multiple choices with one or sometimes two correct answers.
