I stumbled upon this website many moons ago and fell in love with the idea of a focus wall. I 'think' it's a Houghton Mifflin thing, but it could be adapted to any subject or curriculum. Focus Walls tend to have the same elements, but this one had a little something extra that caught my eye. Boggle!
Do you see it down there in the bottom right hand corner? Obviously this could be done with a printout or marker, but I just adore the use of magnet letters. It would make a great center, whole group or choice time activity.

This idea will surely be finding its way into my classroom.
