Looking for spelling re-enforcement for an older student after your spelling program runs out? Look no further. Beezi contains 2000 spelling words on 500 cards, each with four levels of difficulty. At the Killer Bee (highest) level, everyone will be learning new vocabulary words (meretricious, cisalpine). Even the Honey Bee (easy) level words are no spelling gimme's (obscene, fragrance). Besides the word, cards contain phonetic spelling, part of speech, definition, and origin. All levels are in play at the same time, with players advancing farther depending on the difficulty level of the word. Another nice feature of the game is that all players are spelling every word; if the player who's turn it is gets the spelling wrong, all other players with the correct spelling advance. This game for up to 6 players takes about an hour to complete.
Traditional word search games are challenging, but lack a certain amount of…excitement. How about a head-to-head word search competition for 2-4 players? The round board is set in the middle of the table, the printed letter grid is inserted on the board and the squeezable noise-maker is placed within reach of all. The outside edge of the letter grid shows the words to find, but is obscured by the opaque edge of the board. One small gap reveals the word to be found. All players try to find this word and the first player who does so grabs and squeezes the noise-maker, points out the word, and covers that word with his colored markers. The winner is the player with the most colored markers on the board. Simple to learn and quick to play. Comes with 10 double-sided grid cards. An expansion set is also available containing 10 additional double-sided cards.
