This bundle of 46 uniquely shaped blank word search puzzle grids is a great addition to all classrooms.
Kids love expressing their creativity and with this collection of blank word search grids, there is sure to be something here for everyone. Students love doing fun activities, and what better way to 'having them learn without even knowing it' than to offer them the opportunity to create their own word search to complete and exchange with friends.
Use these blank grids in home schooling classrooms, regular classrooms and as a tutoring resource.
Please note that some of the square shaped blank grids are very large (e.g. 15x15 - 25x25) and might be better suited to students in higher grades.
Here are some ideas to engage students' brains, engage critical thinking skills and activate problem solving strategies. This list is not exhaustive.
~ vocabulary building around theme based units (Dinosaurs, Holidays/Seasons/Festivals, weather)
~ vocabulary building based on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)
~ vocabulary building based on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, Mathematics)
~ consolidation of learned vocabulary in all areas of curriculum
~ include in language centers
~ use as an activity during free time
~ for older students, have them create the word search with a hidden message
~ for older students, have them create the word search that include words that are NOT listed in the word list (remember to include the fact that there are other words in the grid that need to be discovered)
~ have the word search built around words that have a fixed number of letters (e.g. 7-, 9-, 12-lettered words)
~ have the word search built around words that start with a certain letter of the alphabet
~ have the word search created using 4-, or 5-digit numbers, rather than words
