This crossword puzzle provides practice with spelling words that contain /ar/ - like cars and jars. An extension activity on the worksheet challenges students to identify and generate other words that contain /ar/.
I created this printable for my 3rd graders. It would also be appropriate for confident readers in 2nd grade as well as students in higher grades who are working with /ar/ words.
Your students will solve the crossword puzzle using the clues provided; all answers are vocabulary words that have the vowel sounds found in cars and jars. Next, students will identify three pictures of AR word items in jars, write what they are, and then create and illustrate another AR word.
This activity is aligned with the following Common Core Literacy Standard:
** Third Grade L.3.2
