Letter & Word Puzzles engage, involve, and motivate. Because it's easy to see what to do with them, solvers are automatically "driven" to make use of language cues (visuals, spatial arrangements, meanings, given letters, contexts) to "get the answers" that fit. Intermediate Phonics & Spelling Puzzles "teach without forcing the issue." Explanation, sound-letter charts, word lists, and answer keys are there for those that wish to make use of them. But the learning derives from the doing.
With one-page puzzle-like activities called "Word Find," "Criss-Cross," "Linked Words," "Letter Choices," "Maze Words," "Switched Letters," "So What's Different," "Meaning Categories," "Letter Connect," "Letter Jumble," "Letter Blocks," and "Rebus Crossword," language learners acquire the phonetic relationships betweenInitial & Final Consonant Sounds & Letters, "Simple" & "Complex" Vowel Sounds & Letters, "Open" & "Closed" Syllable Rimes, & Word Parts (Prefixes, Roots, Suffixes, Elements of Compounds). Answers are one- and multi-syllable words with common, regular, and irregular spellings. Definitions, synonyms, paraphrases, sayings, phrases with blanks, and parts of speech appear when they are needed.
