Cut vertical strips to make each puzzle. Cut them ahead of time, or have your students cut them out. Leave the letters attached to the pictures. For an extra challenge, cut the letters, so they are no longer attached to the pictures.
You may save the pieces for reuse or have your students glue them to construction paper. To practice handwriting and spelling, glue the pieces onto handwriting paper (included). Write the words individually, or have your students write sentences that use the spelling words.
