Description

Notice: We have had some reports that this game may not work on iOS 7. We apologize and we will update this game soon!

Help! Luna and Leo are working from a spell book to try to bring animal statues to life. Use your spell book to select the correct word and use it correctly in the sentence. Good Luck!

Same Sound Spellbound is an adventure designed to help the player understand homophones. You begin your adventure choosing to play as either Luna or Leo, young magicians at Magic School, beginning to master the magic of words. In this lesson, Luna and Leo must correctly identify the homophone which best completes the puzzle sentence, in a given time.

If the player drags and releases the right word into the spell book then the animal statue is brought to life. If the player drags and releases the incorrect word then the animal statue crumbles to dust. The game incorporates learning synonyms attuned to the particular grade level, based upon excerpts from grade-appropriate reading materials.
