Pre-Kindergarten - 1st Grade
This is a beginning crossword puzzle. It can be done one-on-one, small group, or large group. The smaller the group, the easier to teach and observe.
The first letter of each box is typed that color, so the child knows where to start spelling the word.
The color words are on the paper to help spell the words correctly.
The numbered box is beside the word to help them locate the same square on the grid and the direction to write the word.
They will probably notice that the black and brown start in the same square, but the box is brown.
It can be used to instill the love of words, along with the educational benefits. Enjoy!
