Puzzle Me This
Prediction In honor of National Puzzle Day (January 29), place the pieces for a puzzle on a table. Don't show the picture of the finished puzzle. As students complete a section, ask them what the setting might be. What else can they predict so far? Characters? Season? Do this several times during the process. Save their written predictions to compare with the finished result.

A Puzzle a Day Provides Practice That Pays
These activities exercise students' critical thinking skills while providing needed practice in math, spelling, and other areas of the curriculum. Why not introduce a puzzle a day? Puzzles make great "bellringer" activities. Included: A year of puzzles!
