What is word mania?

Word Mania is an interactive online word-building game. Students are given a board of 15 randomly generated letters and have three minutes to create as many words as they can. Every valid word formed earns points. Longer and more complex words score higher, and scores can be boosted by building valid words consecutively and using special Gold and Diamond letter tiles. Word building involves a variety of literacy skills: phonemes, morphemes including affixes and plurals, spelling, word recognition, vocabulary and word knowledge. Students can play as many times as they like, and the sum of the highest 50 game scores by at least five students from the same year level will be their school’s score for that year level.
