When Words With Friends came out I was SERIOUSLY addicted. But really. I was obsessed! Who wasn't?! I had about 20 different games going with family members, friends, and people I didn't even know. Although I wasn't very good, I enjoyed the competition and the brain power required to come up with words that were worth the most points. Last year (while teaching 4th grade) my students LOVED playing the Words With Friends board game during recess and center time.
Then today I stumbled across Words With Friends EDU! My kiddos would have LOVED this! How awesome of a game to play during Word Work time! Or maybe during a transition time, or maybe during recess! The possibilities are endless! You could have classroom challenges or even school wide challenges. This is TOO cool not to share. The teacher can even play too!
Here is a QUICK START GUIDE to using Words With Friends EDU in your classroom. Currently they offer classes for 2nd grade and up!
And until 12/2/16, Words With Friends EDU is giving every teacher who creates their first class a $10.00 DonorsChoose.org giftcard (Up to $10,000)! Here is the link to the post so that you can submit your code to get your giftcard.
I would love to hear how you are planning on using Words With Friends EDU in the classroom!
Until next time!
