Instead of submitting my great idea, I'm posting it here, to share with you my friends.
Homework with William is a challenge on my good days. Second grade spelling is really kicking our butts this year. ("cornucopia" was one of his words last week.) After sitting (not so) nicely at school for seven hours, plus a half hour commute each way, he is ready to do anything but homework.
When I saw this "Scrabble" game at the local mission for a dollar, I grabbed it up! He is now having fun creating different crosswords with his spelling words every night!
