Helps with math in a wierd way
Ok so when trying this, i knew that my brother didn't really enjoy crossword puzzles and were WAY too hard for him. However, when i played the app with him, it turned to be VERY easy to play with. All you have to do is click on the line and click the word. Its a 2 step process that my brother can easily do. I thought that you had to spell it out. Also, oddly it helps with math because every time we try to find the word, i count the number of spaces in the line with him and then make him find the word that has that number of letters. Its very simple!
I pull this out whenever I'm bored and it usually kills time nicely. I'm still a beginner at cross word puzzles so the word bank by the side is very useful. I also really like the idea of a theme. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to play around with words, especially beginners because the additional word bank function tends to be very helpful.
BEST APP EVER!
What a fun way for my kiddo to practice her new reading skills! She thoroughly enjoyed all 40 of the crosswords and wanted to know if there were any more. To the developers: please make more reading games like this one! :)
