Keep photocopies from this bumper book of word puzzles on your desk, and you’ll never need to worry again about that fast finisher or what to do with that spare 15 minutes on a rainy afternoon!
Sometimes you just need a puzzle or two to help you get through a really busy patch in class. Not just any old puzzle book though! Here’s a book of language focused crosswords for middle school students that will help to reinforce new words and phrases for a range of topics across the curriculum.
They are suitable for individuals and groups, and are particularly helpful as language support for speakers of other language.
Each crossword is themed covering:
– Famous people
– Rhymes and much more!
In addition to supplementing in-class activity, the puzzles can be copied and kept in a box to have ready for relief / substitute teachers, or supplied as fun and engaging homework
activities. They are also useful to have available at library time. Students can identify key words in the questions and seek answers in the reference section of the library, or as an Internet search activity. There are 50 puzzles altogether, and answers are included for ease of self-marking.
