My Word Coach

My Word Coach (Wii)

Game overview: This is a vocabulary and spelling game that works out an appropriate level for you to begin and get success.  It then gets progressively more challenging and the more games you get right, the more games that become unlocked for you to play.  There is also a nice graphing facility to chart your progress.

My Year 5 class have been playing My Word Coach on the Wii during guided reading and writing sessions.  They have worked in their guided groups at improving their vocabulary and spelling.   They are learning and improving their word skills without really knowing that they are doing it because it is in a format they recognise – a game!!  One of the best things that has come from this has been the collaboration and team work that the children have had to employ in order to become more successful.
