It is all the rage in my classroom! My kids play it in line, at the lunch table, during snack, you name it they are playing it.  The other day I went to my desk to get my reading book after calendar and I heard one of the say sparkle ready go …table… and I was like SERIOUSLY  I came to get my book not drink my mocha and browse the internet!  lol They take it extremely serious.  The main thing that I use it for is whole group rewards.  We start out with the whole word spelled on the board and every time I have to get on to the class as a whole I don’t have to yell or scream (sometimes I forget I don’t have to do this) I simply go erase a letter!  It works like a charm… here’s a video explaining the excitement and how to play if you are not familiar with the game.  We play with our spelling words and/or sight words for a challenge.

Thank you for posting this. I play this with my students too.

We had to sit out in the hall all afternoon due to tornados, and my cute kiddos were doing a "whisper version" of sparkle spelling in small groups. It was adorable! :)
