About Sumdog Writing

Sumdog Writing

Sumdog Writing lets students practice spelling, grammar and creative writing skills while playing fun, interactive activities together.

Sumdog Writing also helps students practice their typing skills.

Safe Space

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.
