I'm Ann Richmond Fisher, and word play has been a part of my world for as long as I can remember!
As I child, I loved to create tricky word finds for family members. As a classroom teacher, I regularly used word play activities to strengthen spelling and vocabulary skills.
For over 30 years I have been a published author of word puzzles for educational publications, websites and weekly newspapers. My work has appeared in Highlights for Children, Puzzlemania magazines, PennyPress puzzle books, McGraw-Hill publications, The Education Center's resources, and many, many more.
Now, I'm delighted to share my word play games with you.
In addition to the learning games on this site, I also suggest you visit www.spelling-words-well.com. My other site has word lists, spelling games, worksheets, crosswords, brain teasers, spelling bee resources, and tips for spellers and English learners of all ages. Teachers and parents, you're sure to find something that's very helpful!
Word puzzles are great for building language, reading and spelling skills. They also building vocabulary and plain ol' thinking skills!
But the best part is that it's FUN to solve word puzzles!
