End of Year - Cryptolist Puzzles

How do puzzles augment classroom curriculum? Puzzles augment grade classrooms and home schooling environments when provided to support vocabulary building, consolidation of spelling and development of cooperation and collaboration. Puzzles are a tool to introduce concepts, new vocabulary and encourage perseverance as students work to solve them. Cryptolist puzzles are an alphabet encrypted list of words, usually based on a theme. Each letter of the alphabet is substituted with another letter. To solve the puzzle, the code needs to be deciphered. Knowledge of letter and word patterns, combined with theme based knowledge, are keys to solving these brain teasers. The greater the students' knowledge of common letter patterns and word structures, the faster these puzzles are solved. Students can work as part of a team to develop collaborative skills.
