After helping Barbie find hidden letters and objects throughout Malibu, players are asked to sort letters and words into word families that share common spelling patterns. This helps children read and spell new words they encounter. (For example, if children can read or spell ?wig,? they can use analogy to read or spell ?big? and ?fig. ?) Players build phonological awareness by identifying items that share the same beginning, middle, or ending sounds. They also use word recognition and listening skills to choose fabulous accessories for Barbie, and get practice with spelling as they silkscreen adorable t-shirts in the Pet Paws Boutique. To successfully find the culprits, children must assimilate all the clues they?ve discovered using free association. For example, players help Barbie?s friends remember potential clues to the mysteries by choosing words related to characters? thoughts and dragging them to Barbie?s journal. Then, they put together puzzle pieces to show the crime scene and display the culprits. Puzzles are replayable and become more complex as players progress through the story.</p></div> <h5><div id="header2">Personalized for Every Child</div></h5> <div id="text2" class="a-spacing-small"><p>In Barbie Malibu Mysteries, children can practice their own spelling lists for school while having fun with Barbie. Parents can choose from a list of thousands of words to create a unique list for their child to practice, and update the words as often as they like. If parents opt to let the game select the words, Barbie Malibu Mysteries will adjust the level automatically based the child?s age and performance, keeping kids challenged at just the right level.

The machine will screen more words onto pet t-shirts for players to spell, too, offering them practice with the words they need to learn. Barbie Malibu Mysteries is also packed with ways for children to express their personal style.

In one game, players are asked to identify items that rhyme or share the same beginning, middle, or ending sounds. These key phonological awareness skills help children understand that words are made of sounds and boost their ability to predict how to read and spell new words they encounter. Players are also prompted to find hidden letters and objects, and then sort letters and words into word families based on shared word endings. When children recognize how some words share common spelling patterns, they can use words with similar spellings to help them figure out new words they come across. Another game helps build listening and reading vocabulary and word recognition skills as players identify words to dress Barbie in a full range of mix-and-match outfits. In the Pet Paws Boutique, players get to silkscreen t-shirts as they practice spelling words from customized lists that can match the words they are learning in school. Alternatively, players can practice words with spelling patterns that get increasingly more sophisticated as they successfully move through the levels.</p></div> </div> <div class="third-col last"> <div class="leftImage" style="width: 300px;"> <div id="image2"><img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41mIwjO06CL.jpg" alt="Compatible with all LeapPad Kids?
