When I was younger, I remember sitting around the dining room table with my Mom, Grandma, and Grandpa playing board games. It was always a favorite way to spend time with each other and of course, they love challenging my brain to get thinking. One of those games that we loved playing was SCRABBLE.
While Aubrey and Kelsie are both under the recommended age of 8, we too have loved being able to play SCRABBLE in teams as a family. We recently were able to get our hands on a NEW version of SCRABBLE, that includes playing with “Power Tiles” to give the game a twist, as well as the chance to earn extra points.
You always have a laugh when you get to that point where you begin running out of room and have to really test your brain with those words you probably don’t normally use (yes, we verify with dictionary here!) Knowing that it helps my girls with learning, it’s no surprise that SCRABBLE has become a great and fun tool in our classrooms.
Because of the educational benefits of using SCRABBLE in the classroom, Hasbro has teamed up with teachers and community leaders to create School SCRABBLE Clubs. Designed for kids in 4th through 8th grades, School SCRABBLEClubs can be established in the classroom, as an after-school club or through other community organizations, such as a library. Kids play in pairs, making it even more fun when they play high value letters on a triple word score! High fives for everyone!
Whether you are a teacher or know someone who would be interested in starting or supporting a School SCRABBLE club, it’s simple and easy to get started. You can learn more about the program, register a club, watch videos and find tips about how to start a club at the School SCRABBLE Club website: http://www.hasbro.com/
