Word Search/Crossword Puzzle Competition Grade I
We would like to inform you that the Word Search/Crossword Puzzle Competition for the students of Grade I will be held on Thursday, 29 November 2018. These activities are taken up to initiate children into developing their reasoning power and the art of brainstorming. It also helps the development of cognitive skills.
- In Word Search Competition, students will be given a square grid, in which each box will have a letter. Students are supposed to find the given words and circle them in the grid. The words may have been placed vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
- The Crossword Puzzle Competition will be like normal puzzles, and children will be expected to complete the puzzle using the given clues (words and pictorial). The words will be taken, from their curriculum and general vocabulary (day to day usage). For e.g., names of days, months, body parts, fruits, vegetables, etc.
The child who takes the least time to find the given words and fill up the Word Search / Crossword Puzzle, with the maximum correct entries will be the winner.
We have already started doing these activities so that children become aware of what is expected of them.
We are sending this notice so that you can train your child at home too. Towards this end, we will be sending worksheets with the students so that they get enough practice.
Wishing you some puzzle solving days ahead!!
