Jumbline 2, by Brainium Studios, is a very addictive word game that offers over 20,000 five, six, and seven letter puzzles! We have found this to be a great "reward" app for our students. While they are rearranging the scrambled letters into words, they are strengthening their spelling and vocabulary skills... and loving every second of it! The developers have cleverly added a learn new words feature with their built-in dictionary, which we really like.
You can create words by underlining them with your finger or tapping the letter blocks, then clicking on the "checkmark" to submit your word. To score points, you find and underline the largest word and advance to next levels. You have the option of playing the game in a relaxing untimed mode or putting your skills up against the clock in timed rounds.
Jumbline 2 includes two additional games: Cloud Pop and Star Tower. In Cloud Pop, your goal is to pop as many clouds as possible, by spelling words out of the letters carried in each cloud. In Star Tower, your task is to build the tallest tower you can, before it sinks into the ground, by making and taking words out of an infinitely jumbled line of letters. The larger the word, the slower your tower sinks, so scramble and twist your brain to think big!
We used Jumbline2 in the classroom but it's also great to play outside of school and a fun game to play with friends and family.
