How to Play
1. Students sit with a pencil and paper facing the puzzle in pairs.
2. Leader presses the Start button on the puzzle generator and starts a timer.
3. Students join the letters horizontally, vertically and diagonally to form words.
NB They can join the corners of touching letters to form words.
4. After 3 minutes (vary the length of the game based on your students' needs or have no time limit) students compare words and eliminate spelling mistakes, non words etc.
5. Students tally the points for each word and decide on a winner.
Before the Game
- Discuss strategies used by yourself and the students for finding words e.g. I tend to have a general glance at the board to see what just pops up then start at the top of the board looking for consonants followed by vowels to see what I can join together and then work my way to the bottom of the board. I then look for words that start with vowel sounds. What works for you?
- Do a web search for 'Boggle tips and tricks' and see what pointers you can get.
