Finally, Criss-Cross Activity Pack is available. The temptation to rush the product’s release has been resisted. The result, a very comprehensive, high quality resource.
A detailed, diagram filled User Guide ensures the product owner is fully informed of all content items and the various ways in which these components can be utilized in the quest to support students in enhancing their vocabulary.
Each card focuses on one topic, with 30 diverse ideas presented in total; some of which include sports, diseases, presidents, musical instruments and occupations.
Students may choose the “General” topic on each card or the “Getting Tough” category if they wish to extend their vocabulary skills even further.
After the student derives a word bank of relevant words and it has been edited, he/she is set the creative task of designing a Criss-Cross pattern unique to any other student. The greater the number of words used and the greater the Criss-Crossing of words taking place, the better.
This 34 page (A5) book allows the student to record ALL words and designs easily and neatly in the one place.
On each double page, within the student workbook, a ‘Ratings Counter’ is available for the student to record his/her success arising from the completion of each Activity card.
In addition, three ‘Progress Tracker’ charts (Phase A, B and C) are available. These charts are progressively colored in (based on the Ratings Counter) as Activity cards are completed.
For each Activity card topic, an Answer Guide is provided consisting of a word bank of 35 relevant words. In total, over 1000 words are able to be accessed by the student; a mini-dictionary specific to this pack.
These guides can be used as an assessment tool or as a helping tool; depending on the student’s ability.
