WordWiggle V1.0

Ok, I have to admit, this is an incredibly addictive activity (yes, I was up until midnight)! WordWiggle is the Palm equivalent to the game of Boggle. You get a bunch of letters and have to make as many words as possible in a set amount of time. One thing that you do have to make sure that you do is to download the WordWiggle dictionary. To do this, you have to register at WordWiggle (it's free).

WordWiggle checks each entry for proper spelling against its dictionary. Mispelled words cause the student to lose points!

The best part of this though, is that once students learn how to play this game alone, the next step is to partner them up and have them compete against one another. Once in the game, to compete, you have to click on the WordWiggle logo and then click on the menu to select Beam & Play Challenge.

You can also ajdust the settings in WordWiggle. Settings include:

Time limit: 1 to 9 minutes
Puzzle size: 3 x3 to 7x7
Minimum word size: 2 through 5 words
