Bell Work


Make a 5x5 grid on the chalkboard using either a Boggle game set or by simply generating letters yourself. Have the following directions listed next to the game board so students can start as soon as they enter the room:
  1. Make as many words as you can using the game board.
  2. Start with any letter on the board to make your word.
  3. Letters in the word must touch each other.
  4. You may not use the same letter space twice in the same word.
  5. Each word must have a minimum of three letters.
  6. Have fun!
