Spell and Score with Tricky Word Boxes

"Tricky Word Boxes" is more than just a game—it's an exciting opportunity for students to sharpen their spelling abilities while

strategizing to outsmart their opponents.


Here's how it works:

  1. Setup: Write each player's name in the scoring box in the bottom left corner of the board. Use a paper clip and pencil or a spinner to select a tricky word from the circle.

  2. Gameplay: Players take turns spinning the tricky word spinner and then locating the word on the board. Once found, the player draws a line to connect any two dots that form part of the square around the tricky word. If the line drawn closes a square, the player marks an X in the square and earns a tally mark in the scoring box.

  3. Strategy and Skill: As the game progresses, players must strategize to both claim squares and prevent their opponents from doing the same. Quick thinking and careful planning are key to victory!


Extra Practice and Learning Opportunities

"Tricky Word Boxes" provides more than just entertainment—it's an opportunity for additional learning and skill development. While waiting for their turn, players can reinforce their spelling abilities by writing the tricky word they spun on a whiteboard, enhancing retention and mastery.
