I can already tell this week is going to fly by! Wouldn't it be amazing if we added an hour or so to our day and had a 4 day work week? I'd LOVE it! I might actually have time to relax instead of running errands, games, and getting ready for the next week on Saturday and Sunday!
Anyway, it's time to link up with my sweet friend Holly for her Tried it Tuesday! You can link up or read about all kinds of things that have worked or failed for other teachers. Lots of great ideas!
Boggle is one of my FAVORITE games, but the original game can get a little loud in the classroom with all those shaking cubes! So, I made a nice, quiet Boggle Board on a pocket chart! It saves center space and it's a great visual!
My "Boggle Board" is used mostly for my fast finishers for enrichment. I sometimes also use it as a 5 minute filler (if I ever get 5 minutes!). The letters are switched out each week. I use the amazing book below to set my letters up each week-all the work is done for me and I already know several words can be made with this pattern of letters. :O)
Do you know about this book? I ordered mine from Amazon several years ago and I love it! Click here to learn more.
I used to use this book for a center or for fast finishers, but I like my pocket chart because all students can see it in our classroom and it cuts down on copies.
Of course, if you've played Boggle, you know how addicting it can be...and my students love "playing" this (learning) game when they finish an assignment quickly or come in early in the morning. Fun way to teach spelling patterns and new vocabulary!
