What is Word Mania?

Based on one of LiteracyPlanet’s most popular exercises, in Word Mania, students race against the clock to build as many words as they can in three minutes, from 15 randomly generated tiles. Word Mania improves spelling, word recognition, and word knowledge and we see on average, game scores increase by 36% over the course of the competition.
