Scrabble - I can honestly say I have learned a lot of vocabulary from Scrabble, a game of words.
Today students from an English classroom were sent to the library for reward time to play Scrabble or free Internet reading (all with supervision from me).
Students playing Scrabble learned three new words:
- wan (pale)
- wane (to fade away)
- pare (to peel)
It is a great opportunity to talk about the "waning of knights in the Middle Ages" and many other bits of history using these words. Scrabble games makes great gifts and are great for family time!
