Mija really enjoys Scrabble. She has gets better each time we play and asks less frequently for help.
Besides the obvious spelling practice, Scrabble can increase vocabulary and math. Currently, since mija is still learning to develop the words, we haven't been keeping score, but there will be a lot of great math we'll do when we start! There's the obvious addition, but then there is doubling and tripling. And if it's double or triple letter, you actually have to do a little algebra by doing some multiplying before adding.
