Free Beginner Crossword Puzzle

Crossword puzzles are the world's most popular word games for children and adults!

This is a great product to teach the concept of crossword puzzles and review color words. It can be done one-on-one and in large or small groups.

The smaller the group being introduced, the easier to teach and observe while doing the activity. When working with a large class, depending on the age, it may be necessary to do it together step by step. You may need to do a copy of the activity along with them for all to see.

The first letter of each box is printed the color of the correct word, so the child knows where to start spelling the word. The student might notice that black and brown start in the same square, but the box is brown.

The color words are on the paper to help spell the words correctly. The numbered box is beside the word to help them locate the same square on the grid and the direction to write the word. A key is included.

You can instill the love of using words, along with the educational benefits and maybe create a lifelong puzzler! Enjoy!

The. Thrill. Never. Gets. Old!

Discount Marketing Strategy on a TeacherspayTeachers Product!


I’m sure that most of you already knew this trick, but I didn’t! How had I missed it!!! So I thought I would share…
I wanted to make a TpT Store product on sale with the line through the regular price and the sale price listed. I asked how to do this and a dear friend, Pamela Kranz answered my question.


Go to the upload page of the product you wish to edit. Put the regular price in the Price Box. Then put the sale price in the Bundle Discount Price. When you Submit and load the page it will show it discounted!

Easy peasy…....now!

TeacherspayTeachers Blog

I am so excited to be in the TeacherspayTeachers Blog today! http://blog.teacherspayteachers.com/funny-classroom-moments-tpt/
It shares one of my favorite teaching stories!

When I first started teaching, I overheard one of my kinder girls explaining to a new student how kindergarten works. "We are the a.m. kindergarten class — the first class each day because A is the first letter of the alphabet. Now, the p.m. kindergarten class is the last class of the day, since P is near the end of the alphabet. And…………(long pause)………I think the f.m. class must come in the middle of the day because F is in the middle of those letters."

Happy Sunday!
