Quiddler Skill Connections

Playing QUIDDLER is so much fun that your students won’t notice they’re learning. Spelling skills sharpen quickly. After each round the words used are immediately seen by all players, and quickly learned. In cooperative play mode, after someone goes out, all players help those remaining to maximize their points. This enables all players to see how to make the combinations, increasing vocabulary as they go. Because of the short word bonus, learning two, three and four letter words becomes a natural goal of all players. As players try the make words with the highest point value, they are constantly adding up their points again and again during each round, as they do publicly after each round. Math is a natural aspect of playing QUIDDLER.
