Bananagram is a game quite similar to Scrabble, except that as a whole group plays, the actual Scrabble type board that is created is individual. I was introduced to this game by Gerogianna McBurney, a good friend from my Food For All days, and knew immediately it would be a great teaching tool in Peru. So I bought a whole bunch of Bananagrams to bring along! Great purchase and thank you Georgianna!
|Wish I had come up with this game! Fits easily into a suitcase, and carries with it so much educational fun.|
|Divided the class into groups of 6 to 7, each roup with its own Bananagram. After I explained the basics of how to play Bananagram, the students began making words in English and building their own individual Scrabble board.|
|It was fun to watch how the students would look over each other´s word board and help each other spell new word!|
