What a great way for students to expand their vocabulary! Learn to play a game about words that they can engage in for the rest of their lives. This tournament was a big hit a couple of years ago but we no longer have any scrabble sets. We need games for the students to practice on and some dictionaries to help them learn more words. Small prizes for all involved too.
The tournament is voluntary and begins in the classroom with vocabulary games. Interested students come to the library to sharpen their skills and prepare for the big day. The tournament is an all day event that the students study for all year. Hopefully we can find prizes that they will cherish but it also builds their self-esteem.
Students will increase their literacy skills and their brain capacity. It's a good community builder and gets kids excited about learning.
