Scrabble Addition

Ashlyn liked her making word activity so much that I thought I would give her another one only add a little math into the mix.  This is what you need:

  • Scrabble tiles
  • a list of words
  • calculator (optional)
  • pencil and paper

I gave her a list of 5 words.  We spent the day at the beach yesterday so I used beach themed words.  You can also use spelling words, sight words, seasonal words, etc.  Then I gave her a bucket of the Scrabble tiles.


She had to spell the first word from the list and next to it make a number sentence from the point values on each tile.  She had to add the sentence up and total it.  I let her use a calculator because I hardly ever do and she loves hers.


Once all the words were made and added up, she had to tell me which word was worth the most.  She loved it!

    seriously, your creativity boggles my mind! I love this idea and will be doing this tomorrow with Bradley. I was just thinking that Bradley would probably love playing a Scrabble Type game with me, but I wasn’t sure where to start… this is a GREAT idea :) Thanks & keep the good ideas coming, please.
