The Advent Calendar of iPad apps day 5 – Word Juice

word-juice

This is one of a growing suite of educational apps by Alan Peat. As the name suggests, it’s a word based game where the objective is to create as many words as possible from eight outside letters and a central vowel which has to be included in every word. Once you have found enough words you can either carry in with the same set of letters or move on to another.

It works well as a English starter or an early work activity and is good way of re-enforcing spelling and developing vocabulary and is also surprisingly addictive. It’s very well designed with attractive imagery and is available to download from the app store for £0.99.
