Boggle Your Mind



Update this bulletin board once each week for spelling fun.

You are probably familiar with the game Boggle?. In that game, players use a random selection of 16 letters to form as many words as they can. They earn points for the words they can form by putting together consecutive letters. They earn

  • 1 point for each three-letter word they create;
  • 2 points for each four-letter word they create;
  • 3 points for each five-letter word they create;
  • 4 points for each six-letter word they create;
  • 5 points for each seven-letter word they create; and
  • 6 points for each word of eight or more letters.

    For this bulletin board game, create a Boggle-like board that is five letters square (5x5 grid). Post the letters each Monday and check back on Friday to learn which student earned the most points. You might keep a running tally of points for students, or you might award a special prize to the student who earns the most points each week.

    You might use an actual Boggle game to create your bulletin board letter-combinations for the week, or you could search for on online Boggle game to use to build the Boggle bulletin board for the week.
