These anagrams are great! I plan to use them as warmups for my Gifted groups, and to share with classroom teachers. I read that you were involved in GT education in the past...that's my specialty! I really love your store & your TpT tips newsletters, and I welcome any advice as I am slowly building my store (only 8 products so far). Thanks! Lisa Davis

On  October 12, 2012Margaret Whisnant answered:
Thanks so much for the good rating and the positive feedback. Yes, I am certified in gifted ed, and I loved those students! Way too often, they are still left without certified teachers and appropriate materials to keep them engaged and moving forward. So glad to meet another teacher who see the value in gifted programs! Just keep creating and posting and your store will be stocked and selling in no time.

#15. Lazy fodder
The spelling for something lazy should be "IDLE", not "IDOL". Just a detail. Overall, a very good product.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for finding the error and letting me know! This one slipped past me and two proofreaders! It has been corrected, and the new version has been uploaded.

I LOVE these anagrams! Not only is this activity a wonderful way for my 4th grade students to work together (collaborative in action - part of our Mission Statement) but they are being exposed to more challenging vocabulary (versatile - flexible)! I cannot wait to introduce this activity and use it year after year.

A BIG thank you from my heart to yours!
