Why is Gamification Important?
Gamification has numerous benefits. Playing games provides a safe and fun learning environment. It also allows for a better learning experience. Kids also get instant feedback through games. Moreover, students learn more than spelling by playing games! Kids learn problem solving skills, following directions, following rules, and they get a sense of pride from a game well played. Our games encourage students to play again to perfect their skills as well.
Spelling Game Demos
Crazy Fish is a fun spelling game for the classroom that requires your student to eat the correctly spelled word while avoiding the misspelled words. This is a great way for your students to compare words quickly and decide which one is spelled right.
Word Scramble is the perfect way for students to become familiar with their spelling words by trying to guess what they are. In the end, every student will get the word right! This is the perfect classroom game to help students learn their words while having fun.
King Cactus a Hangman Style Game
Students will love guessing the words on their spelling list. We encourage "peaking" at their spelling list if they need help too. Don't let King Cactus lose all of his leaves. Your student can save the King and his leaves by spelling the words correctly in this cool hangman style game.
Who doesn't love memory games? Click on two cards to find a match. Once your student matches all the words, they win! Memory is the perfect way for students to become familiar with their spelling words and start to memorize them.
