FANTASTIC FEATURE #1 – Endless Combinations and Difficulty Levels
Choose any combination of sounds to sort! Choose more sounds to make the game more difficult.
FANTASTIC FEATURE #2 – Editable Word Lists
You can edit the word lists to choose the exact words that you want to practice. Simply uncheck a word to remove it from the list. The words will randomize so that the game is always different and fun.
FANTASTIC FEATURE #3 – Self Correcting
Students will know right away if they have placed the letter in the correct spot. If correct, the letter will snap in place. If incorrect, the bee will return to the bottom of the screen.
FANTASTIC FEATURE #4 – Ten Fun Themes
I have included ten different themes to choose from so that you can play the game anytime of year! The themes are: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Superhero, Pirate, Western and Sunny Spring Day.

How to Play
Whole Class Cooperation
The class works together building words on the interactive whiteboard. Determine how long you will play or set a goal for the number of bees to collect before you start the game.Have one student at a time come up to the interactive whiteboard and unscramble a word by touching and dragging a letter to the correct box.
Small group or single player – Played on a computer workstation, PC or Mac
Start the game on a computer and allow the student(s) to play for a certain length of time. If you want to create a competition between students, record their scores on a piece of paper or blackboard and see who can collect the most bees for their hive in a defined amount of time..
