Word Mess

504739597x356Word Mess is great for students of all ages but particularry for students in KS2-KS3 as it boosts spelling, word recognition and general knowledge. It is also being used in special education programs and by occupational therapists.

Word Mess has four different modes.
Find Mode – simple word finding, boosts visual scanning
Rhymes – find words that rhyme together. Great for little kids
Categories – boost your general knowledge with endless combinations of hundreds of categories!
Bonus Round – Odd one out. Our personal favorite!

This app is great for tutor time competition. Can be played individually or in small teams. A great way to get students alert in the morning to improve their literacy. Mirroring the iPad using Apple TV can share the screen with all members of the group. Or, mirror using Reflector to have multiple screens mirrored at the same time.
