Spelling Crossword Puzzle
When I give geography related spelling words, I have my students create, on
graph paper, a crossword puzzle of the words. The only "catch" is that all words
must be 'crossed' at least twice. First, this makes the puzzle a little tougher.
It also means the students will pay closer attention to how the word is spelled and
they will write it a "few more times" as my students tell me. Some have even asked
if they can color the unused spaces after they finish? Sure! The more time they
spend with these words the better.
