If you are working on a winter theme, searching for practice with making word-to-picture connections, or want to incorporate vocabulary assessment into a Summer Olympics lesson, these crossword puzzles will become a staple in your lessons. Looking to try something different to evaluate math instruction? Our math crossword puzzles are a great way to assess kids’ understanding of addition and subtraction.
An added bonus with crossword puzzles is that they require kids to use context clues to determine answers. Context clues are hints within text that students can use to decipher the meaning of words and concepts. When kids master how to use context clues, they read with more fluency and improve reading comprehension.
