Rainbow Secret Code Word Puzzles
Puzzles are always enjoyed by my kids, so I thought it would be cool to create editable puzzles. Not only that, but puzzles that require kids to utilize problem solving skills by cracking the secret code and then completing the puzzle.
The free printable rainbow secret code puzzles have really kept the kids engaged in learning while having fun!
Differentiating the Editable Puzzles
These are very easy to differentiate. Type any words in on the first page and the puzzles will auto-populate with the words you put in.
One side of the puzzle will show the phonics font and the other side will show a regular font.
If your kids are learning to read simple CVC words, you can type those in.
Use them to work on blend words, digraph words, or any other word work you would like. You can even use them for longer spelling words.
There are so many possibilities for word work!
Unfortunately, the phonics font doesn’t have a number option, so you can’t use this one for numbers.
