Boggle & Dental Health

I love Boggle.  One of my most favorite apps. While writing about my love for this game during Writer’s Workshop one day, I realized that my kids sorta love this game, too!  A few of them said that their parents play it on their phones and some of the others talked about playing Boggle Jr. at home with their families.  Love it!  So I combined their love for Boggle with their love for the SMARTBoard and now they ALL have a FAVORITE Work Work activity!!  At least once a week, I have the kids visit the SMARTBoard to play Boggle…and they LOVE it!!  They each take turns connecting words and then recording them on a corresponding sheet.  You can click on the pics to download a set of Boggle Boards & recording sheet for your kiddos.  This is a PDF file so they aren’t specifically made for SMARTBoard…you can adapt them however you need! :)

If you don’t have a SMARTBoard, you could laminate the Boggle Boards and have the kids find words using a vis-à-vis or expo marker & then record their words on the recording sheet.

Oh…almost forgot!  You might already be all planned out for the next few weeks, but just incase you’re needing some new ideas & activities, I just uploaded my Dental Health Mini Unit ~ Brusha, Brusha, Brusha to TpT {$3.50}

  1. I am so pumped to see you've posted a Dental Health Unit! We are starting Dental Health next week and I was literally just thinking to myself, "I bet Cara from The First Grade Parade would have some super cute ideas for Dental Health!" I'm heading right over to pick it up at TPT. Thank you so much for all that you do! I love, love, love your blog!

  3. Dental Health is a topic that often gets pushed aside in the first grade curriculum at my school. I'm excited to check out your unit! I see some activities that might work well for my class! Boggle is a neat idea for the SmartBoard too! I LOVE my SmartBoard!

  6. There you go Cara!!! Doing it again!! Being AMAZEEEE{ing}!


    @Claire:
    You need to make sure you have the most updated version of ADOBE and that it is the default PDF opener. Mine used to open with preview and the same thing would happen. Then, I started using ADOBE as my default and it worked!


    P.S.
    I emailed you some important info!

  32. Hi Cara! Question about your boggle board! Do you have your kids make words using all of the letters on the board or do you only allow them to make words with letters that are touching in some way (horizontal, vertical, diagonal)? Thank you! Stop by my blog if you can! My blog is in need of followers. :) Thank you thank you!
