How I Use It
I used it with small groups at the middle school level in remedial reading and resource room settings. I declared Wednesdays as Word Power Wednesday and students made sure I didn't forget! I hooked up my iPad to the SmartBoard and together we selected a list of words. Students took turns in a round robin fashion to try and achieve a new high score. For these sessions I created a single name classroom account.
My Take
This is a great way to create engaging vocabulary reviews. You can select lists already created which is a time saver - by grade or subject. It's very easy to use with individuals, small groups or whole class. You can create accounts to save your high scores which is motiovational.
