These Dolch crosswords and word scrambles are a great way to practice the 3rd grade Dolch sight words with your kids and have fun in the process! Use these in a center, for early finishers, homework, morning work, interventions or during choice time. You can include them in your sub plans. They are always great to have handy and can be used throughout the school year!
This set includes:
• All 40 3rd Grade Dolch sight words
• 25 crossword puzzles and word scrambles
• Answer keys
The 40 Dolch words are divided into four groups of eight words and one group of nine words. For each word group I made up five differently configured crosswords and word scrambles. I did this so the kids can practice each word group many times. You could also hand out the five different crosswords & word scrambles at the same time so kids are less likely to be able to copy from each other ; )
I wrote a blog post about these word scrambles and crosswords:
Word Searches, Crosswords and Word Scrambles Are Fun Ways to Learn Sight Words
This is a companion product to my 3rd Grade Dolch Word Searches
. For example, worksheet #A1 in word searches uses the same words as worksheet #A1 in crosswords and word scrambles. You can copy the word searches and crosswords and scrambles back to back for some engaging sight word practice!
