Teaching Tip

Always carefully read and solve any brain teasers first before assigning them to your students. If you think a particular puzzler is a wee bit too hard, consider assigning students to work in pairs. If you're a parent, sit with your child as he begins to solve a puzzle. If he gets "stuck," allow him to think about things on his first, then offer small hints along the way.

Throughout our site, you'll find lots of fun spelling resources. So while you're here, be sure to try some of our spelling word games and spelling worksheets!
