Dictionary.com is the default online dictionary for millions of people. But did you know that Dictionary.com also has word games for your edutainment? Dictionary.com offers six registration-free and fun word games. The two games that I like best are Miss Spell’s Class and Word Kingdom. In Miss Spell’s Class
students are presented with twenty commonly misspelled words and
quickly decide if the spelling they’re looking at is correct or
incorrect. Word Kingdom could be described as Zelda meets word search. In Word Kingdom
players have to construct words in order to earn objects like wood and
gold. Once enough objects are earned players can move on to the next
level until they have built their Word Kingdoms.
Applications for Education
you’re looking for some word games that your students can play
independently, Dictionary.com’s games are a good starting place. Linking
these games to your classroom blog would make it easy for students and
their parents to locate the games quickly and give them another good
reason to check in on your blog.
