Words Mine Offers a Tetris-like Game for Spelling Practice

Part of this post originally appeared on my other blog, iPadApps4School.com

Words Mine is a free iPad app that combines elements of Tetris with spelling games. The challenge of Words Mine is to spell words quickly before the screen fills up with blocks. Each block contains one letter. Choose blocks from each column to be sure that one column doesn’t reach the top of the screen too quickly. A columns drop down when a letter is used from it. If you need more letter options just shake your iPad to make more letters drop into the screen.

Applications for Education
Words Mine is a simple yet addictive app to that students will enjoy playing while practicing spelling. I could see students quickly getting hooked on this game. I found myself having trouble putting the game down.
