What Are Fill In Puzzles?
Fill in puzzles are a type of word puzzle game that will challenge students in a fun way.
These were my favourite type of puzzles when I was a kid. It’s a mind exercise that is fun to play and very relaxing.
The words are grouped by the amount of letters they contain. So a 7 letter word can only be placed in a 7 letter spot, and all the words must be fit in.
When working on fill it in puzzles, the solver is keenly focused on the letters that make up each word, which makes it a fun way to work on spelling.
