This resource includes four versions of word searches aligned to the THIRD EDITION of the Words Their Way Word Sorts for Derivational Relations Spellers. Two versions are full page worksheets, one with and one without a word bank. The other two versions are half pages, with two copies of the same sort on one 8.5" x 11" page. One has a word bank and one does not.
This resource can be used in a number of ways with the THIRD EDITION of Words Their Way. You can use these as an introductory activity, having students search out words before you even share their new sort, or you can use it as a fun activity part-way through the week, or some combination of the two.
A few notes about how I made the actual word searches:
-Word searches are included for all 65 sorts
-Two letter words are NOT included, where applicable
-Words with hyphens, spaces, and apostrophes have been reduced to one word (upside down is upsidedown in the word search, couldn’t is couldnt in the word search, etc.)
-Duplicate words within a sort (i.e. wind and wind) have only been included once in the word search
-Words may be found horizontal, vertical, or diagonal, forwards or backwards
-Each word search includes approximately 20-25 words, although the exact number is dependent on the corresponding word sort
-Words banks are in alphabetical order
