While teaching 3rd grade, I needed something that spanned multiple ability levels and could be used as an assignment/homework, or a fun activity/literacy center. I also wanted the kids to focus on vocabulary and words. Boggle was a game I liked to play. The kids are given a sheet with the board and they are a specific time period (hours, days, weeks) to find as many words as possible. There are 7 boards included in this bundle with answer keys. Use this activity to boost word skills, word recognition, vocabulary practice, and dictionary skills (to check spellings & "is this a real word?"
