The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: "In the Words of Huck" Crossword—50+ clues!
This puzzle focuses on Huck's dialect. Every clue is one of Huck's words; every answer is a translation into "proper" English. For example, Huck's word DISREMEMBER translates into FORGET, and his word CRETUR translates into CREATURE. Fun way to instill an appreciation for dialect!

***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. Language Arts Teacher

***I purchased these bookmarks for 4 novels after downloading the Holes freebie bookmark. They are wonderful! The students refer to them frequently while reading. Struggling readers feel empowered and participate in text discussion much more often. Definitely worth the price!—Portigo P.***

***I have bought several of these resources, and I love seeing my students refer back to them when they have a question about a character. They are a hit!—Tara S.***
