This NO PREP printable activity provides valuable practice using sentence-level context clues to determine and confirm the meaning of St. Patrick's Day vocabulary words.
The student will solve each clue in the crossword puzzle; all words are scattered around the page to provide scaffolding as needed. Next, the student will unscramble the 10 “boxed” letters to solve a "punny" seasonal riddle at the bottom of the page.
Here is what this packet includes:
♥ crossword puzzle (including code riddle)
♥ answer key
♥ Teacher Notes
