Review:
Maya & Miguel Word Scramble is a fresh approach to practice spelling simple words--in Spanish and English. Each player draws a card and must spell the word represented by one of the two illustrations on the front of the card. Using the Scramble Board, a flat plastic board with 48 tiles that slide both horizontally or vertically, players arrange tiles to spell words before the timer runs out. If the player is successful, he/she may choose to spell another word from the same card (either in Spanish or English) for bonus points. Once time runs out, other players shout "Tiempo¡" or "Time!" and the speller's turn is over. The game continues until all players have had three turns. Points for correct answers are then tabulated and the player with the highest score wins the game.
