This is a PDF of Crockett Johnson's "Harold and the Purple Crayon" crossword puzzle and word search. A word bank for the crossword puzzle is also included on a separate page. The answers for the crossword puzzle are in the word search, as well as a few other words of the theme so they can be used in combination or separately.
Why buy this resource?
This resource has clues/answers from quotes from the book "Harold and the Purple Crayon" by Crockett Johnson, usually a rhyming word or an important word to the story, and one clue/answer of the author ("Johnson"). The items in this resource can be used to teach students reading/writing and comprehension of the book. They can also be used as a no-prep time filler, a bonus, or a reward activity.
This resource is also differentiated in the following ways: (1) the crossword puzzle word bank is on a separate page, so you can choose to share it or not with your students, or share it after the students have spent some time with the puzzle; and (2) there are two word searches, with one having only forward horizontal and vertical words (no backwards or diagonal words).
