"Holiday Word Puzzles" was created by Betty Jo Evers to give children writing activities that are fun and challenging. Six of the major holidays throughout the year are included: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and Easter. Each "Holiday Word Puzzle" includes 12 words and a writing activity that is aligned to the Writing Anchor Standards: W3:3 and W8:8. These activities are great in Literacy Centers and/or for homework. Answer sheets are included.
