BOGGLE Bulletin Board/Center

I am looking to create a BOGGLE center with the board being on a presentation board (like for the science fair) so it can be portable. Any ideas and/or handouts with rules etc. would be appreciated.

Boggle...

I like the idea...

I was just brainstorming and this is what I came up with. Use the library pockets to make the grid. Write or type, print and past; the letters on the top part of an index card so that it shows when placed into the pocket. Then you could set it up for the week with the letters where you wanted them (could be specifically set up so that they would find some of their spelling or vocabulary words).

http://www.fun-with-words.com/play_boggle.html this website had the directions for the traditional boggle.

What do you think?

I had actually been looking into this idea (the BOGGLE idea) a few weeks ago. I found a couple of sites that gave me some ideas.

Found this:
Boggle Board - Shelli Temple
A take off on the old game, Boggle, this would be a good board for vocabulary enrichment, extra credit, or a morning activity. On the board, create a grid of your choice, typically a 4x4 or 5x5. In each square, attach a smaller square with a letter printed on it. Encourage kids to find as many words as possible by moving from one letter to another that it touches. A square may only be used once per word. Change out the letter squares often to keep this board exciting.

and also this:

I really like your idea of doing it on a presentation board for mobility! I would probably make the letter "dice" and get velcro dots or strips to put on the back of the "dice" and on the board, and then you can have the assorted letters to use, keeping the extras in a baggie or something.

Boggle Game

Attached are 11 different letter arrangements for Boggle:

In a traditional Boggle game there are 16 dice and the letter distribution is as follows:
A - 8 H - 3 O - 6 V - 2
B - 3 I - 7 P - 3 W - 2
C - 3 J - 1 Q - 1 X - 1
D - 4 K - 2 R - 4 Y - 3
E - 10 L - 5 S - 5 Z - 1
F - 2 M - 3 T - 5
G - 3 N - 5 U - 4
Total Letters: 96

There is also an online variation called Loggle where you just click the letters to make the words and the computer compiles the word list.

What about putting letters into a bag and choose so many letters out and then spell words with those? Doesn't that sound easier?

Is there a place to get boggle letter arrangements other than the eduplace website? Is the letter placement just random?

Letter Arrangement

I would think the letter arrangement could be, basically, random. When you play the game, you shake the dice and have no control over which one goes into which spot -- that's pretty random.

I'm excited to try this game in my classroom -- I have a "regular" game version for the kids to use, but doing a class game from a bulletin board will be a lot of fun, too. My plan is to make squares with letters, put them into a bag, and draw them out randomly. As long as they're in a grid pattern on the board, the game should work.

They make those double pocket - pocket charts. What about making a Boggle background and then putting the letters on cards that go in the front pockets.

They are actually Teresa Wilson's instructions . I think they relate to rules for making words and scoring:

This is a great idea...I've just joined the PT group and for some reason I can't just relax over the summer. I am definitely going to try this in my class this upcoming school year.

I found on here boggle sheets for 41 different games. I like the idea of using a board and giving them all week. I might have to adapt this. Thanks again for the idea!!
