Puzzle time with Grade 1 Learners

Puzzle time with Grade 1 Learners

The learners were provided with four types of puzzles  “Alphabet Sudoku” , “ Number Sudoku” , “ Crossword” and “ Word search”.

In “ Number Sudoku”, 6 by 6 grid puzzles were given and they had to write the numbers from 1 to 6 with a condition  that the numbers appear only once in each row and column.

Similar rules were applied for “Alphabet Sudoku” where few letters, A, S,K,E,B and T were given. They had to make the word BASKET in 6 by 6 grid.

In “Cross word” a puzzle consisting of a grid of squares and blanks into which words crossing vertically and horizontally are written according to clues.

In  “Wordsearch” learners had to search the words  given in the word bank. These puzzles were given for H.W.

Brain teasers (Logic puzzles) demand mental effort to find solution. The end product may be fascinating but it requires a lot of skill and concentration. If children are exposed to logical thinking from a very young age, they learn to think critically and gain confidence as well.

Important Note:

I am attaching the Images of Answer key for the last cycle’s homework worksheets for you to tally the answers. Do correct the worksheets and send them back without fail as our learners maintain a LEAP file in the class.
