Best classroom game ever!!

I have had word winder in my classroom playing it with my students. It is probably one of the best literacy games I have ever used. All levels can play it. You can make accommodations to the rules to adapt to your classroom needs. From your lowest readers to your highest. Whether for use as an intervention or to use as enrichment. It will fit to all needs. I would recommend it for 3rd grade on up. Don't miss this one. Every classroom should have it!
If you use iPads this is a great addition to your technology curriculum!

Lovely brain challenge!

Being new to the iPad, a friend suggested I try out downloading some apps. I had heard about Word Winder, and thought I'd try it, as I am not great at word games and need to beef up that skill. It was easy to get the hang of and after a few minutes of messing with it, I suddenly feel like a word game pro!! Quite addictive! And I like that I can play with other people. And can go as fast or slow as I like. Fabulous!

Love this game--could be the best word game ap out there

I had played this as a board game at a friends house last week, then saw it was available as an ap…downloaded it and was up 'til 2:00 AM playing it last night--completely addictive, incredibly fun, lots of variations to play…and the game is brain food! It lets you think and strategize and is a total blast. Thank you to the genius who figured this game out!
