|Crosspatch End of Year Puzzle()|
Crosspatch end of year puzzle to challenge kids' brains while continuing to support vocabulary building and consolidation of spelling.
Crosspatch puzzles are similar to crossword puzzles with the added challenge that there are not clues except the length of the words.
To solve this puzzle first review the list of words in the word bank. Next, find words with either the most or least number of letters in the words. Then fill in the blank boxes in the grid with that/those word/s. In this case, there is one 3-letter word (hot) and one 13-letter word (horseback ride).
Once these two words have been written into the grid, then locate the intersection letters with other words. Fill in those blanks. Sometimes, it takes trial and error to get the correct combination.
