Imagine this...Having fun, munching on treats your kids made PLUS your children's vocabulary and spelling skills are improving by the minute... Sitting around a table are three children, ages 8-11, and their grandmother. They all are each hurriedly printing something on a piece of paper; suddenly the youngest child shouts "e;I got another one!"e;Her older brother grabs the dictionary and is looking up a word from his paper, "e;It is a word. I knew it. I rock!"e; The last child says, "e;Does anyone have the 6 letter word yet? I think I know what it is! It's my turn to pick the recipe today, right grandma?"e; What is the secret that these kids don't know? They are playing word scramble games especially designed to teach them new words and to improve their spelling...the kids think that they are just having fun! The teacher designed games are "e;kid friendly "e;classic word scrambles games. They are designed in the "e;Hangman"e; game style of a hint letter and blank lines for the missing letters. All children are familiar with this style. The words selected are words for kids 8-11 years with some enrichment words to challenge. These games are designed by a teacher so that adults too can have fun with kids playing word games that improve spelling and enrich vocabulary. Each game has words that are easy and more difficult to allow children of different ages to score stars in every game. Every child will score stars in the game. Children gain confidence in their skills and try harder. The games can be played with 5-6 kids at once or a child can have fun just playing alone or with his babysitter, parents, aunts and uncles, even older cousins. For adults, it is a game of speed thinking. Most adults would be familiar with most of the vocabulary words, but how fast can they think of them?
