What’s the Word? App

While on sweeps Saturday I discovered a group of boys intensely playing a vocabulary game on their phones and iPads–and several hours later I returned to find a bigger group of them still playing it. There was a healthy mix of collaboration (“what’s this one?”) and smack talk (“I can’t believe you can’t figure that one out!”).

The app is called “What’s the Word?” The game shows you four pictures, and you have to figure out the common word that ties them all together (you have a letter bank to choose from). Some of the puzzles are easy, and some are definitely a bit more challenging. It’s fun, free, definitely a bit addictive–and a nice way to use some visual literacy skills.
