We’re on a mission to be every child’s most loved English teacher
About Mrs Wordsmith
Mrs Wordsmith is a team of artists, game designers, writers, data scientists, teachers, and researchers. The company was founded in 2015 by Sofia Fenichell, a mother and writer with a simple vision: to create educational content that worked, and that her kids wanted to use. Schools weren’t keeping pace with entertainment and technology, and she was determined that language would not be left in the dust. Using Hollywood-quality animation and state-of-the-art game design, Mrs Wordsmith creates books, games, and apps to improve the reading and writing outcomes of kids aged 4 - 11, and to make word learning hilariously fun both at school and at home.
“Mom built a thriving business to help youth learn language through laughter.“
We work with the world’s most influential childhood literacy experts to ensure that all of our products are backed by the latest and best research into reading development. Our advisors include the very people who designed the phonics curriculum in both the US and the UK, as well as leading teachers who bring a wealth of knowledge and insight into how this research can be applied in the real world. Our pedagogy focuses on gamification, visual learning, and spaced repetition to ensure that learning sticks, with word curation informed by cutting-edge data science.
Award-winning, bestselling range
“You won’t want to miss Mrs Wordsmith. It has engaging and fascinating content, enabling children to learn vocabulary.”
Susan Neuman, Professor of Childhood and Literacy Education
We believe that kids’ literacy resources should be every bit as engaging as the movies they watch and the games they play. That’s why our characters were designed by the artist behind Madagascar, and our team boasts experience working on games including Subway Surfers and Candy Crush. The result is a modern, exciting learning experience that is simply faster paced, more motivating, and more fun than any other.
