Jumble Jamble is a literacy app/game we’ve developed to help promote spelling and word building. It’s a new twist on the popular word jumbles you probably see in your daily newspaper. It’s aimed at students (well, anyone really) who is reading and writing at a middle school level or higher.
The app has 3 game modes: 3 Up, 7 Down, and Blitz. In 3 Up, students start with three jumbled letters. After they make a word a new letter is added into the mix. This continues until they’ve made a seven letter word. There’s no time limit – users can take as long as they want to puzzle it out. 7 Down is the reverse, starting with seven letters and working your way down to a three letter word. Blitz mode is a little different, letters get revealed at certain intervals and you make as many words of any length as you can before time runs out.
We think it’s a great way to get kids, and adults, excited about spelling and literacy without realizing they’re doing something educational!
