Bridge to Terabithia: 9 Quotefall Word Puzzles—Great Spelling Workout!

Each of these QUOTEFALLS puzzles contains a quotation from BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA. Students form the quotation by transferring letters from below the grid to squares in the columns directly above.

Some quotations from BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA QUOTEFALLS. Puzzle begins after the colon.
* Jess’s First Impression of Leslie: The girl had no notion of what you did and didn’t do.
* Talk About Ruining Things!: Running wasn’t fun anymore and it was all Leslie’s fault.

QUOTEFALLS require students to use their knowledge of the story, along with their knowledge of spelling, word usage, and vocabulary, and they also check students' reading-for-detail skills. Once they get the hang of them, students love these puzzles!

QUOTEFALLS are perfect filler activities for after tests, between lessons, or at the end of the day!

While you're in my store, check out my BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA edition of BOOKMARKS PLUS, the bookmarks that help students keep track of main characters, provide students with a list of challenging words they might encounter as they read, and so much more!

My students LOVE these bookmarks. I have one for each of the 11 pieces of literature they read with me during the year. Not only does it keep their place, the bookmarks provide valuable information about each text, as well as helpful vocabulary that could be incorporated into assessments. I actually copy limited numbers of each in color and use as class incentives. My 10th graders LOVE to win contests to upgrade their bookmarks to color (way better than candy as a prize too). I cannot say enough positive things about these bookmarks! —Matthew R.

To say that my students loved these would be an understatement. They referred to them all the time, got really upset if their bookmark got misplaced, and said they were the best thing you've ever given us... (they are prone to slight exaggeration...but they were appreciative!)...Highly recommend!—H. S. English teacher
