SMARTBoard Anagrams {and a Freebie}

Howdy All!   
Two wonderful, yet busy weeks have come to an end...tomorrow will be my first day back.  I will be missing break, however I'm super excited to see all those cute faces again! 
I wanted to share my kiddos favorite center with you... Anagrams on the SMARTBoard. My kids LOVE these! Anagrams are basically word scrambles.  Each ball has a letter on it, the kids have to unscramble each word by moving the balls around to receive points.  There is a clue button if the word is tricky for them.  I use it as a spelling or word work center.  

The Anagram template can be found by doing a search in the gallery.  You can then plug in words of your choice (FYI each word must contain 3 letters or more).  Anagrams can be used for sight words, spelling words, vocabulary words, etc.  Each slide 5 words, once the children have solved the five words on each slide they advance to the next slide.    
In SMART Notebook- search for "anagram" in the gallery section

I have created two files containing Fry's first 50 words for you and words 51-100. You will need SMART Notebook software to use these files.

    1. I can't imagine, that would be very hard to transition back to not having one! I hope you get one soon! Good luck!

  6. I have been using the smartboard for years and never knew what the "anagrams" was all about. Thanks. Just made a quick geometry anagram for my 4th graders.

    Thank you!
