Build words using the letters on the board! Use this widget on an interactive whiteboard or projector as a whole class activity where your students write words in their books. The letters are hidden until you hover over the board or press play to start the timer. Good luck!


Suggested Rules

Make as many words as you can, within the time limit!

Game Variations

Word Snakes: The letter squares used to form words must be adjoining (adjacent or diagonal) in a 'chain'.

Random Letters: Choose any letter squares to form words. Only use each letter square once.

Words must contain at least three letters.

The scoring is as follows:

  • Less than 3 Letters: no score
  • 3 Letters: 1 point
  • 4 Letters: 1 point
  • 5 Letters: 2 points
  • 6 Letters: 3 points
  • 7 Letters: 4 points
  • 8 or More Letters: 11 points

Although the 'Qu' cube occupies a single space on the board, it counts as two letters for the purpose of scoring.

The letters in Teach Starter's Toggle widget are generated at random, and the possible combinations per puzzle are not checked for undesirable word combinations. Please generate the puzzle and conduct your own check before presenting to your class.
