#3 - Crossword Puzzles

If you enjoy solving crossword puzzles, you may enjoy the free Easy Printable Crossword Puzzles collection. As the name implies, these crosswords are not extrememly difficult, although some folks may find them a bit challenging.

This is a random collection of crosswords that I made myself. You'll find crosswords on topics from Animals to Winter. Enjoy!

Some of these printable crosswords can be solved online in your browser. Look for a "Solve Online" link under the name of the crossword puzzle.

#4 - Balance Quest Math Puzzles

balance quest

Balance Quest is a numeric progression puzzle. Your job is to fill the gaps in the hierarchy of numbers to exactly "zero out" the left and right sides of the puzzle.

If you enjoy sudoku, kakuro, mathduko, and other math logic puzzles, give this challenging brain game a try. Balance Quest has been described as a "jigsaw puzzle for numbers." It reminds me of a cross between sudoku and a magic square.

#5 - Checkerboards Math Puzzles


The Checkerboards game is a printable math puzzle in the genre of sudoku, mathdoku, kakuro, and kenken. In the words of its creator, checkerboards is a "jigsaw puzzle, but played with positive and negative numbers."

The rules of Checkerboards are not complicated. But this game can be fiendishly challenging, especially with the larger-size boards.

If you've ever tried to solve a sudoku board populated with woefully few entries, you know what I mean. But that challenge is the fun and the skill of it.

#6 - Printable Math Flash Cards

Teachers and students should find this chart useful as well. Different sizes are provided to accommodate the way you want to use the chart.

#8 - Printable Sight Words Lists

Sight words list

All the sight word lists and flash cards are free to print out for non-commercial use.

Sight words are vocabulary words that don't all follow the normal rules of English spelling. At the same time, these are common words that everyone should know how to spell. There are several lists you can print out, including Dolch sight words and the 100 Most Common Words in English.

To learn these words, students need to practice recognizing them "on sight". These free sight words printable lists include the famous Dolch word lists for different grade levels.

#11 - Printable Yahtzee Score Sheets

Printable Yahtzee Score Sheets
