Product Description
Such a Great Little Activity That Combines Fun with Academic Skills
 
Your students will love this personalized crossword puzzle activity that brings in the sweet fun of Valentines Day.

Ten Valentines Day-themed words are built into this cute crossword puzzle. Each puzzle clue features two or more children's names woven into the context of the clue. What really makes this puzzle special is that the clues can be edited by the teacher to feature the names of the students in the class!

For instance, this clue:
Hudson, Clover, and Alex each have a _________ full of valentine cards. can be quickly and easily edited to read
Delia and Marquise each have a _________ full of valentine cards.

Regardless of the number of students in your class, a few keystrokes will include everyone in this fun and valuable reading activity!

Included in this set is a list of tips and strategies for teaching the elements of crossword puzzles. Crosswords are one of the original self-checking activities. If a word does not fit in the given number of boxes, students will know they are not on the right track.

Another nice feature of this puzzle is that I have created "beltlines" in the middle of the generous-sized squares. Kids are encouraged to use good letter formation by the design of the squares and will also learn that they will benefit from being able to read their own writing when they attempt to use their written letters as clues!

The clue page and the puzzle page are each fully fill an 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper. If you are fortunate to have 11 x 17 inch copy paper, your students will love having a puzzle that will fill their desktops! If you print the pages separately, simply stack the pages facing each other and add a couple pieces of Scotch tape. The effect will be the same.

This activity can be assigned to individual students, or as a partner activity. Any way you implement this fun task, it is sure to be a hit!

INCLUDED:
--Crossword Page
--Editable Clue Page
--Puzzle Key (two versions)
--Teaching Tips for Crosswords (two pages)
--Simple and Easy Editing Instructions


When students finish the puzzle, they can color the blackline images that are featured on the page.
