Mrs. Rudacille's Second Grade



School:Redeemer Christian School
Location:Ocala FL
Comments:Hi Redeemer second grade family! My suggestions for vocabulary practice are: 1. Easiest level skill - Word Scramble; use the hint button first for vocabulary definitions 2. Medium level skill - Pinball good for word lists with words NOT exceeding 12 characters; be SURE to hold down computer button briefly to activate pinball release spring; vocabulary definition quiz after each successful ball attempt 3. Difficult level skill - Stingray Chaser; very challenging use of space bar and directional controls Have fun! Go Redeemer Lions!



Stingray Chaser

Pinball
