Here’s an example of a great way to get kids to practice their math skills AND think about spelling and grammar.

Each letter has a calculation below it, after figuring out the result of the calculation the letter can be inserted in the lower portion wherever that result appears.

Kids should be encouraged to think about what they are doing (maybe first go for the high probability letters), look at the words as they form and guess what letters might fill in the gaps, etc. They DO NOT need to figure out all the letters (not for this puzzle anyway). You could mark or score the puzzle based on being correct and having figured out the fewest calculations.
