Boggle Board = Word Work Fun!

Pinterest is a blessing and a curse.....well, only a curse if you're OCD like me and when you see something, you just have to make it that minute or have it that minute or order it cuz you saw it there or.... or... or...............OR................OR............................................................................

Ok, you get the idea.  I have had a very boring, generic version of boggle that my kiddos have done with some letters and a pocket chart.  I am super excited to say.......NOT ANYMORE!!
Here is my new boggle board:D  (I wish I would have backed up to show how big it is)  I have seen these huge metal sheets on Pinterest in a few places as magnetic boards.  I don't have tons of space in my room so got one of these.  It is an oil drip pan.  Dummy me thought it was a pan that goes under some big huge oven.....nope, under a car.  You can grab one of these at a car place (I got mine at Auto Zone) for $9.99.   That's it!!!!  They are really pretty big and the part I like the best is you can move'em or put them away....whatever!  I also bought a roll of the magnetic tape to cut into pieces and put on the backs of all my letters....easy to change out!

The letters for my boggle game are at my Teachers Notebook store if you are interested:) (HERE)  My kiddos are going to use a worksheet from my pen pal buddy Rebecca's blog at Create*Teach*Share (HERE).  Be sure to check out her super cute boggle board too:)  I keep my extra letters here...
Happy boggling (is that a word?????) all:)

  6. I love this! I've seen the boggle boards as bulletin boards, but really like this idea of having a smaller version. Definitely borrowing this idea! Thanks for sharing!

  7. How do you decide what letters to put up and what order? This is something that I struggle with.

    And now, of course, I have to get a drip pan.

  10. NICE! Boggle is our FAVORITE game, well, along with Scrabble, Bananagrams, PIT, Clue, Rumikube and Blokus. YAY! Thanks for the tip on the oil drip pan.

  12. Your board looks great! I really like the Boggle idea, although I'm not sure how I would work it into my classroom. There's gotta be a way! Thanks for sharing.

  13. I had to laugh when I read that you HAD to get one of these pans right after finding it on Pinterest! I did too!!! I got mine at WalMart...a little bigger and lighter than the Auto Zone ones. I bet the auto store people around the country are wondering why there are so many carzy women scooping up every oil pan available lately! I am using it for an interactive board out in the hall near my kindg. room with a focus of the week...letter, sound, color, etc. ...with hope that other teachers and students will all to the board's collection all week long with my students.

  15. I have one on a bulletin board and I hand out the worksheet (also on Pinterest) at the beginning of the month. I always make one word (or phrase) that uses all the letters. It's usually related to a holiday or something important about the month or season. The kids pull them out and work on them whenever they have free time. If they get the bonus work (phrase) they get a prize. They also get 5 extra credit points if they turn it in at the end of the month with a minimum number of words (I determine that by the letters that are available that month). My 4th graders LOVE it!!

    1. What are the rules for boggle? Are the kids supposed to make words from only touching horizontal, vertical and diagonal letters?

  16. I use the following web site and then everyone is making words.

  18. Tara, I LOVE the Boggle board! I had seen it already, and then today, my campus ESL specialist came and showed me a picture of it! She was so excited to show me your cute idea, and I got really excited and said "That is my friend, Tara's!" Haha! I love how we all start feeling like friends in the bloggy world!
