How to play word search puzzles?
Download the printable you want from the links below.
All of the word search printables have an answer sheet with them.
Below is an example of the Elf word search, apart from the July 4th word search and the Halloween word search they all follow this format.
Make sure you don’t scribble out the letters when you find a word, as the same letter could be used multiple times. I find circling the words found is the best method.
The words can be found horizontally, diagonally, vertically, and both forwards and backward.
When you print them out make sure to not give the answer sheet.
What are the educational benefits of doing word searches?
There are loads of educational benefits that come along with doing word searches.
Including, of course, spelling, increased vocabulary, and the development of word recognition, and we like to use them as an end of unit wrap up.
