Word Tree 3D FREE.
A word-building app in which letters on apples are combined to make new words.
Publisher: Arb Studios LLC

Why we love this app

Word Tree is both entertaining and educational for students in grades 5 - 6. The fast-paced nature of the game does not leave room for careful thinking, as in Whirly Word, but it does make players work quickly to create words of various lengths. The many rewards and special features are highly engaging. It's a solid word study game for middle school students.

What it teaches and how it works

Word Tree 3D has a farm setting in which a tree is filled with apples, each containing a letter. Students "harvest" the apples by combining letters to form words. When a real word is submitted, the apples involved are plucked from the tree. Fast responses are rewarded, while slow play results in apples falling to the ground and decaying. Once a minimum number of words of each length are created, the game is successfully completed. This app reinforces spelling and vocabulary skills in a most enjoyable manner.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

Students will love the challenge of combining the letters on the apples to create words. Many forms of reward are built into the game, and there is an abundance of color, music, and motion to keep players interested. They will apply their knowledge of sight words as well as common word patterns in building the words needed to "harvest" the apples successfully.
