Carol Leynse Harpold‘s insight:

I am rather old school and not a gamer, but Tetris was always a fav of mine. As a spelling game this might not be a real easy game for our students with spelling challenges but it might be a good way to work on memory, chunking sounds and letters as a strategy for copying information  from paper to paper and board/ overhead to paper. Provide them with a list of frequently used words to spell in the apps requiring the chunking and memory sequencing strategy.

Teaching chunking strategies with this app to beat their time and score could be a motivating activity that could carry over to classroom achievement. I have a few students who would benefit from this!

Word Mine is available for iOS (use link above) or for Android .

Free is always great!
