How I Use It
Remember those worksheets we'd send home with the word scramble for one long word, encouraging students to find all the 3, 4, 5, and 7 letter words possible? This app does the same thing, but in a fun, interactive way.
This word scramble app appeals to all ages and is a great spelling and vocabulary exercise. It encourages teamwork and vocabulary building.
Drawbacks: These are not always words that are in our classroom vocabulary lists. Some of the words are "Scrabble-worthy," meaning they are not words that are familiar, but this can be used to encourage kids to look them up in the dictionary.
Positives: Kids will collaborate and work hard to clear the board. There are hints.
