Solve these simple word puzzles as a way to practice phonics-based reading while also getting started with the logical thinking and pattern matching skills needed to enjoy both computing and maths.
They are suitable for Year 1, or anyone older learning to read and write.
Kriss-kross puzzles combine a love of words with a love of logic. Given a list of words of different lengths, you must fit them all in to the grid.
These puzzles are all based on words with the same sounds, so you can get to know the different ways of spelling those sounds, practice reading them and practice writing them. Its far more fun than just reading and writing word lists!
