This open-ended puzzle FREEBIE is low prep and requires no color ink! I recommend allowing the students to color the puzzle image before you cut the page into strips in order to make it easier to complete the puzzle. Another option is to color it after cutting out the puzzle and piecing it back together. (This is the more difficult method.) If you chose the second option, many students will need to see the picture before the page is cut into 10 strips or have the mini pictures page at the end of this packet to reference while putting their puzzle together. After practicing the target words/skill the desired number of times, students may glue the strip down on a full sheet of paper/construction paper. Students may also choose to take the strips home (paper clipped) and practice putting the puzzle together at home with parents to promote carryover. The puzzles are in black and white for students to color.
The FREE puzzle strip page is customizable! Write your own target words or language skill at the bottom of each strip. Full packets for each month with ready-made articulation targets are available for purchase in my TpT store here: Year Round Puzzle BUNDLE
