Box-matching puzzles are ideal for spelling and word recognition as it encourages the student to take note of the shape of a word along with its spelling. Using lower case letters, the goal is to find the word that fits the pattern of boxes in the lettering guides. Word Wizard draws the boxes to note ascenders, descenders, dotted, and dotted descenders. The use of the lettering guide provides an opportunity to focus on handwriting skills while solving the puzzle.

As the author, you control the size of the boxes to be made, with larger boxes being useful for younger students. You also set the colors to be used for the lettering guides that Word Wizard automatically supplies. These provide guidance for improved handwriting skills.
