Sight word games provide great opportunities to review previously learned sight words or introduce new ones. Sudoku puzzles reinforce the individual letters that make up a word. The previous sudoku puzzles used four-letter words which are ideal for emergent readers. This sudoku puzzle uses 6 letters which make this puzzle more difficult.
Given the complexities of this game and the typically age of an emergent reader, this is a great exercise to do with your child – work as a team plotting the correct placement of each letter. If your child is a fluent reader, this may be a great exercise to reinforce what letters are in the word, around, and help practice spelling it properly.
