The game, which is played on cellphones that can connect to the internet, is one in which kids choose the correct spelling of words. It’s similar to a spelling bee except kids can play over and over again – until they’ve beaten all of their friends.
More than 6 000 words from the CAPS curriculum can be found in this game, which was developed under the supervision of curriculum advisors. It’s aimed at kids between Grade 1 to Grade 10 (they can play whichever grade they want so it’s perfect for over-achievers!).
