Compound It All!

By Jill Ratzan, Librarian

As a connoisseur of word games, I was excited to play Compound It All! at school this week. This versatile, customizable game includes everything I like best in word games: it combines luck with strategy, competition with collaboration, and even vocabulary with math! The rules were easy to learn and just as easy to vary depending on players' interests and skills.  I especially liked the way the game provides multiple access pointsthe combination of words, numbers, and dual levels of color coding will appeal to players across a variety of learning styles.


Compound It All! will be a welcome addition to the toolbox of any educator looking to balance serious vocabulary instruction with fun and engaging activities.
