Unscramble The Message
Have the boys work on unscrambling messages that you prepare or you can use the following list of odrws (words!) and have the boys figure them out:
up in a "math bee" fashion (pairs of players next to each other) and the flashcard presenter sitting opposite the players. As the flashcard is presented, the two "front line" players try to figure out the word. The player who guesses correctly gets a team point and those players go to the back of the line. Make sure the words aren't too big for the boys (even frontward!).
