WORD JOUST K-5 is a fun way for kids to practice word skills and develop their vocabularies. The mix of five games is varied enough for kids to practice different skills and use their brains in different ways. Kindergarten through fifth grade is a broad age range, though, and third through fifth grade may be more appropriate for the challenge level, given the fact that kids are playing against time. Younger readers may be too bogged down with just trying to read the moving words and may miss retaining the vocabulary. The words are compiled from lists of frequently used words in children's literature and American textbooks. There is no reason for kids to register their email addresses or share scores on the leaderboard, as their stats are saved within the app.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
