Have you heard about Wordle? It’s a free online game created by Josh Wardle that involves guessing a 5-letter word in six tries. You can only play once a day, and everyone who’s playing the game is trying to guess the same word which makes it loads of fun!
I love to create learning games, so I decided to create a kid-friendly version of the game for educators and parents who want to teach it to children. My Wordle Wiz game is played by the same rules as the original Wordle game, but the person leading the game selects the secret word and gives the clues after each guess is recorded.
Wordle Wiz includes printable resources and Google slides versions of them to make it easy to play in the classroom or remotely. Click here to request your free copy!
