Dear Barbara,

I have been on a games rampage, acquiring new games to add to the Surfnetkids arsenal. Not all of them are posted on the site yet,
but here’s one I can announce:

Super Kid is a classic arcade game, reminiscent of Mario Brothers.

See ya on the Net,

It must be spelling bee season, because I see bees buzzing everywhere. The 79th annual National
Spelling Bee finals will be in Washington D.C. May 31- June 1. The movie “Akeelah and the
Bee” is now in movie theaters. “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” is playing on
Broadway. And a new book outlining the history of the National Bee (“American Bee'” by James
Maguire) just arrived in bookstores. These online spelling bee games are my contribution to the
current spelling bee Zeitgeist.

Pick from falling letters to spell the word on your screen. As you progress from easy mode to
normal, the letters start moving faster. In hard mode, there are no starter letters, and you need to
spell the entire word that matches your picture. With each correct word, you are rewarded with a
little animation, and your word moves over to the finished work space. Spelling words are at
elementary grade level and include “lion,” “robot” and “zebra.”

****
Interesting Things for ESL Students has a huge collection of spelling games, which are also
pretty interesting for those studying English as a first language. These games also feature falling
letters, but this time you catch them with a paddle, much like the popular arcade game Breakout.
Select from word categories (birds, kitchen, body parts), difficulty, level of hints provided, or
grade level (such as Dolch site words for kindergarten through third grade.)

Choose the one word in each set of four that is spelled incorrectly, and then spell it correctly. If
you get 100% on all twenty problem sets, you can add your name to the Leader Board. Easy
level is for elementary grades with words such as “table” and “chair.” Hard level is for middle
school kids with words such as “mischief” and “shepherd.”
