Vocabulary puzzle based on the novel by Louis Sachar.
Although students see this as a fun activity, it is an active learning task. It helps students with the difficult vocabulary, in terms of both spelling and meaning. Use this to pre-teach or check comprehension of key words, with early finishers, as an assignment or homework, or in class on a day when you have nothing else prepared. It's great to fill a gap!
There are 38 words/clues in the puzzle. The words are accident, arithmetic, basketball, birthday, blush, bruise, bully, counselor, excited, form, friendship, frown, gift, harmonica, hate, impolite, invite, ivory, lie, lonely, mess, monk, monster, normal, permission, pleasure, polite, pretend, promise, proud, quicksand, recess, reflex, secret, threaten, ugly, weird, and Zen.
