: Are you working on identifying compound words in literature or using them in writing? If so, your students will enjoy this fun homophones themed word search!! If your students are like mine, they love these.
In this compound words themed puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it slightly challenging. The words are not long, but they are in all directions.
I marked this for third-fifth grades. For third graders, the challenge will come from finding the words in all directions.
I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work to give students a preview of the day's topic. They are also great to use in writing. Perfect for a sub, too. Have your students pick a few compound words from the list to use in their writing activity. You could have them write a sentence with each compound word. Use this word search however you would like in your classroom.
