Puzzles Across the Curriculum for First Graders

My students need Puzzles (floor, sight-word, 4-Letter Word Building, Counting Money, etc.) across the curriculum.

My Students

Have you ever watched the pride in a child's eyes as they complete a puzzle? Have you seen the excitement as they find a piece that fits? Children love puzzles and they can learn so much while building puzzles.

I teach 23 amazing and creative first graders in my classroom.

Our school is in an urban setting. We have a very diverse population, from family to racial diversity to economic diversity. We are an inclusive school, which means that every classroom has children with special needs. We teach acceptance and a peaceful approach to being together.

My Project

I am requesting a variety of puzzles. I am asking for a puzzle that teaches children how to make change from money. I am also asking for a set of building words phonics puzzles where children build four letter words by sounding out the letters. There is also a set of learning sight words and phrasing puzzles where the children are asked to match a sight word with the letters to build a sight word. I have also included a set of 12 fun floor puzzles. For example, there is a Sea Puzzle, as well as Zoo Animals, Solar System, and Bugs puzzle.

With your generous and thoughtful donation, my students will learn on so many levels across the curriculum.

You can help this group of learners and many more for years to come learn through the magic of puzzle building. Thank you for considering my project.
