FINALLY!! I have been meaning to make this post for months now but haven’t had the time to type up my puzzles.
I’ve been addicted to them since I was in middle school. There is something so wonderfully satisfying about unlocking the key to the puzzle that has had you stumped for the last 20 minutes and, with a flurry of your pencil, filling the entire rest of the chart with X’s and O’s! I love it. I have a book of logic puzzles in Spanish that my school ordered through Teacher’s Discovery, and it is good but the vocabulary is just much too broad for my students. I wanted to have logic puzzles that allow my students to practice the vocabulary that we are targeting in class so that they can get repetitions from a very different, mentally stimulating activity. Logic puzzles are an AWESOME way to get reading repetitions of target structures because you have to read through the clues so many times while trying to complete them! They are also great because they provide the mental stimulation for highly gifted students that get bored with simple retells. I’ll be posting puzzles on TpT as I create them. Here is one that practices colors and the verbs lleva, tiene, and le gusta (click on the image to download it in Spanish or click here to download it in French, translated by Karima Mann):
If anyone is interested in having translations of the puzzles, I’d love to work with you to translate them into your language of instruction!!
