Score: New Submission (Tic-Tac-Spell) and Approval

Clam Match has been approved.  Download on iTunes.  Congratulations, what do you think?

Tic-Tac-Spell was submitted today.  The app was created by Dustin Lieske, UMW Computer Science graduate 2011 and artwork by Chelsea Mageland (UMW Junior).

Tic-Tac-Spell takes the classic game children love to play and adds a spelling twist to help children learn how to spell, all for free. In Tic-Tac-Spell kids learn to spell words from the Dolch Word List.  The Dolch word list is a list of commonly used English words which children need to recognize in order to achieve reading fluency.

Tic-Tac-Spell allows people to play against the computer.  Moves by the computer are randomized to ensure that the game will not keep making the same moves over and over again.  In addition, words are randomly asked, so each game is unique.  Tic-Tac-Spell uses over 60 words from the pre-primer, primer, kindergarten and first grade Dolch list.

Currently the game is suited for preschooler, kindergarteners and first graders.  It is fun to play and you learn along the way.

How to Play

  • Select the level of difficulty
  • Select your symbol
  • Touch a square
  • Listen for the word
  • Spell the word correctly get the square
  • Spell the word incorrectly and you do not get the square.
  • Continue the Game until you or the computer has won the game

Free and Fun.
