When Your Words Really Count

When Your Words Really Count

April 13 is National Scrabble Day! In this famous game you pick 7 square letter tiles, which you line up on the board to make words that cross other words already there. Each letter scores some number of points; the hard-to-use ones like Q, X and Z score the most points. And if you use all 7 letters at once, called "racking," you get an extra 50 points! If you're good at words and math, you could rock at Scrabble.

Read the story. Talk through the numbers. Kids do best when you do the math together!
