How to Prepare

Print off the puzzles you want to use onto card and cut them into strips. If using the black and white versions color them first before cutting.

Please note that both GRAY and GREY spelling versions are included. The GREY versions are at the end of the document so double check which pages you want before printing.

Using these Color Word Puzzles

The pictures make these puzzles fairly easy to put together so much of a child’s focus can be directed towards the sounds. Encourage children to say the sounds as they put the puzzles together, with a finger pointing at each letter, when complete.
