Crossword puzzles are a popular pastime for many people, but as a person's abilities decline they can become frustrated and often lose interest in doing them completely. Our unique Sequenced Crossword Puzzles are a great way to help the person be successful and regain the joy of completing the puzzle. If the person can successfully complete standard crossword puzzles, that's the best answer and you should encourage them to continue doing them. If, however, they have given up or If they start having trouble or getting frustrated, our unique Sequenced Crosswords can help. Our puzzles use a smaller 9 x 9 grid with word length limited to 3, 4 or 5 characters, but that's just the beginning. Rather than simply providing a list of "across" and "down" clues, our Sequenced Crossword Puzzle offers several different guides and cueing devices to help the person be successful no matter what their skills and abilities. The package includes three different ways to present the clues: a regular across and down list, a list of the clues in a suggested order that gives the person the most guidance, clue cards for individual words that can be used one at a time. In addition, the package includes a list of the answers sorted by word length and a list of two possible answers for each clue. These can be used to further guide the person to success. The instructions describe in detail how to present the crossword successfully. See the look of joy as the puzzle lover regains that feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment at completing the puzzle successfully. Package includes one crossword grid, one complete, reusable crossword puzzle including clue cards, clue list, word list, clue guide plus a wet erase marker.
Add more variety with our Sequenced Crossword Puzzle Add-On pack - two more complete puzzles that work with the same grid.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really want to be able to give this more stars but I can't. I really like the product, the fact that you can erase and reuse is great. My father used to love doing crossword puzzles and I could tell he really enjoyed doing this one. I think it gave him some confidence in himself. The problem with this is you only get 1 hint lost. So you literally can ONLY do 1 puzzle and for the price it is ridiculous. I also bought word search puzzles and they have 4 in each level which was much better. The fact that the crossword only has 1 game is very disappointing.
