Can puzzles be used as an assessment tool? Yes, they can. Adopting word search puzzles where the list of words is not provided in the grid, is one way to assess student learning and understanding of basic ell word family in rhyming words. To solve the puzzle students need to draw upon their vocabulary base of this word family and then locate the words hidden in the grid. Students record the list of words in the space provided. Educators can then identify learning gaps and next steps for instruction.


Hope that everyone is keeping safe! Time travels so quickly it seems, and here we are coming up to Thanksgiving in Canada and then Halloween at the end of October! Have fun completing puzzles from the Thanksgiving and Hallowe'en collections found here: Thanksgiving Puzzles | Thanksgiving Word Searches | Hallowe'en Puzzles.
