Giant Crossword Puzzle for Kids 
Sight word and spelling word games are probably my very favorite kid activities. We haven’t done outside spelling or sight word practice for a while and I thought was about time (the weather is perfect for it). We loved sight word twister. so I put some thought into finding another game that I could modify using Big M spelling word list. 
I decided on a giant crossword puzzle designed around his spelling words. Fun right. I thought so…. and so did Big M. 
Giant Crossword Puzzle for Kids 
. Thank you!) 
Write out the crossword on a piece of paper first. That way it’s easy to fix if you need to rearrange words. 
Start with the biggest words and work out from there. Try to intertwine the words as much as possible so it looks like a real crossword puzzle. 
Write out a sentence for each word. Using the across and down method. I tried to keep the sentences as simple as possible so that Big M could read them himself. Leave a blank space in the sentence where the spelling word would have gone. 
Once you have your crossword planned, it’s time to move outside. I used an old cereal box to make a square template. It was a little small. I think next time I will make squares. 
Trace the template over and over to create the crossword puzzle. I started with the middle and worked out. 
Fill in the numbers to match your across and down sentences. 

Fill in a few letters just to get the ball rolling. 
Step back a bit and let your little one have some fun practicing their spelling words.
