Squiggle Park is built on the concept that practice is the best route to mastery. Therefore every player, regardless of skill, must play and master every stage in a world. In Squiggle Park, we define mastery to be a combination of accuracy, speed and context. Students will encounter the same material in different games. For example, sometimes they’ll hear a phoneme and have to find the matching grapheme, sometimes they will start with the grapheme and look to collect all the matching phonemes and sometimes they will be trying to identify objects that start (or end) with a given grapheme/phoneme.
