I need the classic language-based board game Scrabble for my classroom. I teach seventh grade language arts at year-round public middle school. One regular education class is over 70% special education students. I have many students learning English as a second language, as well. I also have many students who are academically gifted in reading. Although I have a wide range of abilities in my class, Scrabble would serve a wide range of purposes and be used with ALL the students I teach. Students of all levels will be learning, all the while having fun with this time-tested engaging game. They would be practicing language skills, as well as group-interaction skills so necessary later in the work force. Students learning English would be just practicing putting the English words together, while gifted children would be challenging each other to think creatively about language! Besides being fun, Scrabble helps them mainpulate words for better understanding. All of these various types of students must demonstrate reading comprehension skills tested on the NC End of Grade test. Did you ever have a teacher who thought test prep should be done with piles and plies of worksheets? Well, I REFUSE TO BE THAT TEACHER!! Please consider purchasing the board game Scrabble for my class. Beleive it or not, many of these students do not have the fun memories of playing a board game around the kitchen table with their family as you and I do. Thank you for your consideration!
