Puzzles are good tools for cognitive development of the child, some puzzles like jigsaws and shapes sorting also sharpen motor skills.

The importance of vocabulary through word power cannot be emphasized enough. Crosswords in addition to cognitive development, helps develop language, numeric and problem solving skills.This is an attempt to introduce picture and theme based, partially solved, 3-4 letter crosswords to Kindergarteners (Age 5). So, kids can identify and spell them easily. Idea is to introduce them to the concept of crosswords, clues down and across, associate the clues numbering with the one on the crossword.

Click, download, print and enjoy.

    I felt my 5.5 year old was young for crosswords. Good thought to introduce them with visuals and partially spelled words. He was able to solve it with little help to get started. The arrows next to the clues helped him with across and down concepts. Thanks.

    Lisa, Thanks for dropping by. Plan to publish more theme based crosswords and worksheets.
