These Father's Day word shapes puzzles support students' early reading and writing learning strategies needed to support their 'learning to read'.
To solve these puzzles, students need to compare the shapes of the letters in the list of words, in the word bank, with the shapes of the boxes found in each 'word' in the questions.
If the letter does not match the shape of the letter box, then students need to choose a different word.
Puzzle also supports visual acuity as students needs to make comparisons between two visual components of a letter/word.
Word shape puzzles are suited to students in early elementary grades and home schools as they continue to acquire reading skills over time.
