Crossword reviews Words of the Week



Katie Niedfeldt’s 4K class at Parkview Elementary School works on a giant crossword puzzle created to review the second-semester Words of the Week. A team of students at Parkview Elementary School in Plymouth created a giant crossword puzzle to review their second-semester Words of the Week. Each class was assigned a scrambled Word of the Week, which they had to unscramble and then use definition clues to figure out where it fit in the giant puzzle, posted in the hallway for the final three days of school. Smaller versions of the puzzle were provided for students to complete in class. Parkview started its Word of the Week initiative in January 2013. The Word of the Week is featured on a banner, and its definition is announced over the intercom each Monday. Then, for the rest of the week, everyone is challenged to use the word as much as possible to build vocabulary. A group of four students, who called themselves the WOW Kids, worked with speech language pathologist Vicki Schilling to develop ways to review the Words of the Week. They developed a scavenger hunt at the end of the first semester, and the crossword for the second semester.
