Jumbline 2 is an anagram word game. It's great for spelling and vocab. Let us know what you think.
Here's a teachers take on using it in her classroom.
After trying Jumbline 2 myself, and sharing it with my middle school and high school children, I brought it into my second grade classroom. Those of us 12 and older all enjoyed the games and found them quite challenging. I could feel myself getting smarter by the minute and at the same time I felt successful, despite some frustration at not knowing all the answers. In the classroom I was looking for an app that could replace or compliment the paper Make a Word activities we do. The classic game in Jumbline 2 is similar to Make a Word—take the given letters and make words of different lengths. Make a Word is designed specifically for the elementary school classroom and the words are based on an elementary school vocabulary. Jumbline 2 is geared for a wider audience, and much of the vocabulary was too challenging for the class. However, they did really enjoy the dictionary feature, a great touch. Everyone loved the Star Tower game, both on the iPad and on the iTouch. Students played in pairs on the iPad, and individually on the iTouch, both worked well. Having the directions pop up before the game starts is fantastic—no need for students to hunt around for the little icon that will lead them to the help section. Most of them stuck with creating 3-5 letter words and that worked for them, they were able to keep ahead of the moving yellow line for 5-6 blocks and then they were happy to start a new game. Pairs also played Cloud Pop, and enjoyed collaborating and helping each other out. With no prompting they took turns with passing clouds. As with Star Tower they were successful with the initial shorter words, guessed as the words grew longer, and didn’t feel disappointment when the game ended, they just started right up again. It was easy and automatic for students of different abilities to remain challenged while working with a student of a different spelling ability. We will definitely be playing more Jumbline 2 to increase spelling ability, phonics skills, problem solving, and cooperation.http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jumbline-2-free/id384200512?mt=8
