For unit 3, most cycles is about language games. For my 3rd, 5th and 8th graders, I used crosswords. Last year, I did a little post about it named Making Crosswords.
I took a pictures of the best one per grade.
I improved the last year crossword printable.
As a little note, the next week after finishing this project, the textbooks arrived. To my surprise, in the textbook Play and Play 3, there is a similar format to the one I used this year as my printable.
