These fun third grade crossword puzzles can be used to teach, re-teach, practice, or assess vocabulary in the third grade Houghton Mifflin anthologies from themes 1 though 6. Each theme contains either three or four stories per theme. There are six crossword puzzles for your students. Also included is a word bank for each puzzle that may be copied to the back of each puzzle if you want to. I have used these puzzles to challenge students to enrich and engage learning. This important vocabulary development skill is a critical piece of education to support and align with the Common Core Standards for Language Arts under Language: Conventions, effective use and vocabulary, understanding words and their relationships, and acquisitions of new vocabulary. The words were used from the following themes and stories in the 3rd grade Houghton Mifflin series:
Theme 1- The Lost and Found, The Ballad of Mulan, The Waterfall
Theme 2- The Keeping Quilt, Anthony Reynoso, The Talking Cloth, Dancing Rainbows
Theme 3- Dogzilla, The Mysterious Giant…, Raising Dragons, The Garden of Abdul Gasazi
Theme 4- Nights of the Pufflings, Seal Surfer, Two Days in May
Theme 5- Across the Wide Dark Sea, Yummi and Halmoni’s Trip, Trapped by the Ice!
Theme 6- Pepita Talks Twice, Poppa’s New Pants, Ramona Quimby, Age 8
Please Note: Some of these items have small print due to the large number of vocabulary terms.
