About Me

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.

From recent visitors 


I teach at a school in England. Most of my children came back during the pandemic and things were very different. We had a bit more time to explore our learning, and we absolutely loved Triangulairs and Dynamites...

...So, just to say a big thank you and to let you know your hard work has had an impact quite far away!

Hi Ann,
First, let me say a BIG 'THANK YOU'. Your games and crosswords are very helpful to me to draw my daughter (14 years old, with autism) out of her electronics world and into the world around her. Much appreciated. ...

Again, your website has lots of great printables.  I especially love the biblical games! THANK YOU!  K.B.
