Beezi, The Spelling Game
A gem of a fun, educational game, Beezi hit all the right notes with our testers. From the box, which is colorful, appealing and sturdy (helping to keep everything together), to the clearly written instructions that were easy to follow and understand. Next comes the game play itself, which features just the right amount of challenge and can be adjusted based on age and grade level. The game cards require the player to spell but also include the phonetic spelling, the part of speech, the origin and the definition of the word. Parents told us that all of this helped reinforce a deeper understanding and appreciation of the words. Children demonstrated an improvement in their spelling and their vocabulary (which is all well and good) but the bottom line is they had fun and asked to play over and over.
