About this Interactive

Overview

This highly interactive activity supports critical thinking and problem solving while also building students' comprehension and spelling skills. Students start by choosing puzzles based on four popular U.S. children's books. They are then prompted to use clues to identify words from a list of scrambled letters. The final clue is based on an event or theme from their chosen book, which supports story comprehension and makes the activity meaningful and fun. Audible prompts and hints guide students to solve the sometimes challenging word puzzles. After completing a section, students may choose to begin another series of puzzles based on the same book or may choose a different book. This engaging interactive tool would work well with pairs or small groups, either in one session or across multiple sessions.
