Spelling Challenges and More

Spelling Challenges and More
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

Category: Video Games

Personal Evaluation: I am a great speller! Really though, some of the games were a little weird – in one, they flash the word and then you have to spell it. In another, you use the little pen to choose which word is spelled wrong, and in another you choose which one is spelled right. I got into racing the clock so I got a bunch wrong. They also use the same words over and over, which sometimes works to your advantage when you’re unscrambling, you know what the answer is likely to be.

What might interest children: The timed challenges definitely put the pressure on and make it exciting, and the score is reflected as money. Some of the clues are a little weird, though, and kids might not know the answer the game is looking for.
