I am officially addicted to "Words with Friends." It's a great way to keep up with family and friends and I just managed another win over uber-talented sister. Mostly, it gets me excited about words.
ATP ("Awesome Teaching Partner") and I are excited for all the ways these games can be used next year to provoke friendly competition and an excitement for language.
Did you know there is an official foundation called The School Scrabble Association? They have awesome lesson plans, bulletin board ideas, and other classroom resources. There's a great article here that explains all the benefits of word games on learning. We can't wait to use some of these next year and I promise to share the results and fun that ensues.
Wouldn't ATP look great in this?!
