Scrabble – reflection and resources

scrabble2Scrabble.

It’s an iconic word and game. I’m surprised we don’t use it as an adjective – like, “I’ve been scrabbled”.

Today, I was going over some of my past writings, all hidden away in boxes and notebooks. Came across a “feuilliton”, a reflective essay that I wrote about scrabble years ago. I won’t bore you with it – but I will share some great info. and amazing resources for Scrabble.

{ caveat: I’m not a big fan of using word games in the classroom – but they do have their place, like a dictionary does }
