Gurmukhi Learning Game: Sikh Scrabble

The hope for this project is that a love for Gurbani will continue to grow in the hearts of all the children.

Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh

It it with the grace of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji that our home has been blessed with the Gurmukhi Scrabble Stickers project!

This is a tool that each family can use to :
 Spend time together
 Build our Punjabi vocabulary together
 Practice singing Gurbani together based on the words created
 Practice math skills if you would like to write out and calculate scores as you play

First, you will need your own copy of Scrabble. Next, I have about 80 Gurmukhi Scrabble letter tile sticker sheets available that are sized to match the Scrabble game tiles. Once they arrive at your home, you will be required to peel off each one and place it on the back of each scrabble tile to create a 2 in 1 English/Gurmukhi Scrabble game which you can play almost just like the original scrabble game. 

If you’d like to know how I would offer you to play here are some suggestions:

You can use a dry-erase marker to draw on the matras or just tell the players where you would put the matras.

After words are created I’d offer the suggestion that we can elaborate by talking about the words created and also if possible sing lines of Gurbani if the word you made is from Gurbani or share stories and lessons.

The hope for this project is that a love for Gurbani will continue to grow in the hearts of all the children.

Here is the main place to request a copy of the stickers (https://sikhnetpunjabble.carrd.co/) and our family will try to send it out on fridays as a seva.
