I often have these grand ambitions that just seem to crash and burn. I’ll have these stellar ideas of switching out this center every week and updating this work tasks a few times a month. But let’s get real. All of sudden – two months later I look over and my sweet babies are slowly dying of boredom because little ole’ busybutt me completely forgot to switch out the center. Hopefully you can empathize and I’m not alone in this circle of forgetfulness. I have way too much on my plate to always get to those minor details. I’m thinking lesson plans, behavior plans, staff management plans – ugh. There are so many plans in my head that some just get smushed out. So for me, I need a plan for my centers that is easy peasy. Sometimes on an early Monday morning there just simply isn’t time to dig through my resources and find an appropriately leveled task that my guys can do independently. I need something simpler than that.
Word Boggle to the rescue! This center takes less than 5 minutes for initial setup and then each week it will take you less than 30 seconds to switch it. Plus – since the structure stays the same, there is no need for reteaching. Your kids will know how to do it each week. Sold?
My Word Boggle board is set up on an old white board. White boards are convent for this task because you can easily wipe off the letters & redo them. I used color tape & done and done!
To complete this center, students identify words horizontal, vertical, and diagonal. My students use this worksheet to write down the words they find. Download for free here: word boggle.
My higher functioning students complete Word Boggle as part of their Independent Daily Work System. They have the chance to complete Word Boggle twice a week and earn points with our token economy at the end of the week!
