Product Description
NOTE: This puzzle is meant to be used before students read the book. Also note that students will benefit from the use of a thesaurus to solve this puzzle rather than a dictionary.

This crossword contains 50 challenging words from THE BEST SCHOOL YEAR EVER. Either as a homework assignment or as an opportunity for students to work in pairs with a thesaurus in class, it's a great way to prepare students for reading the book and, thus, understanding the story. Note that the parts of speech are included to aid students in finding the exact definition.

Examples of clues:

Anonymous (adj.) ANSWER: unknown
Psychology: The study of the ___ (n.) ANSWER: mind
Resourceful: Good at ___ problems (adj.) ANSWER: solving
Commotion (n.) ANSWER: noise
Privacy: Being ___ (n.) ANSWER: alone

FYI: This puzzle includes the 25 Words to Know from THE BEST SCHOOL YEAR EVER edition of BOOKMARKS PLUS, which students can refer to for definitions as they read the story as well as a list of main characters, author information, and more. See list below.

Also, to reinforce meaning even more, I have created a synonym/antonym crossword over the same 25 words. A great way to test students’ understanding of synonyms and antonyms. See list below.
