Oh that is a fun idea. We've been doing similar with my 7 year olds spelling words. I use the word in a sentence

example Their

Did you see _ _ _ _ _ car go past?

and she has to guess the right word to go in the blanks and then put it in the crossword puzzle.

Anything to make spelling more fun.

They have more than just crossword puzzles! Word searches, scrambles, math puzzles, and much more. I've just printed out two "quizzes" for my son -- he will love them. At least I hope he will. I do.

Great for kids learning to read and spell, too.

You always have good ideas, Marita.

Thanks. Got to keep learning fun :)

I remember many a good teacher doing just this! Worked especially well in science classes.

Crossword puzzles are a way to challenge your mind, increase thinking speed, and jog your memory. They can be used in the classroom to reinforce new concepts and ideas in a fun, entertaining, and unconventional way.
