Who says your budding readers are too young for crossword puzzles? Scholars use visual clues instead of written ones to complete single-syllable words. They fill in the initial letter for each of six words, and a second letter for one of them. Just like in a normal crossword, several of these letters operate as the first letter of two different words. Use this to discuss consonance and words that begin with the same sound. Categorize the words into those with the same vowel sound and those with the same consonant sound.
