I found a great new game app ($1.99) called Dabble. I’m going to project it and play it with the kids or have a couple at a time play it while we project it. It is going on a list of cool vocabulary games that I think parents should have their kids do at home. It looks like this:
It is a timed game. The object is to move the letter tiles around to create a six letter word, a five letter word, a four letter word, a three letter word, and a two letter word before time runs out. Each letter tile has points. I am already addicted to this one.
Other vocabulary games I like are: Bookworm, Word Mess, and WS Free. I also got the app Rootology which helps you learn Latin and Greek roots and prefixes and suffixes. It is a bit on the rote side.
