I received an e-mail from VocabularySpelling City that gave me some great ideas for helping my students to create gifts for their parents. These gifts require little, if no money, but some time and thought on the child’s part. They might also cause the receivers to do some pondering. In addition, this is an idea that parents might want to use for giving their own children gifts. If you don’t have an account at VocabularySpelling City, or want to investigate some other options, head over to www.puzzlemaker.com to create a Hidden Message, Fallen Phrase, or Double Puzzle. My students love solving these, and creating them is fun, too! This site is free and requires no registration.
