This packet includes 3 word search puzzles. Each puzzle uses different words from the Dolch Pre-Primer word list.
These words can go forward, backward, diagonal, horizontal or vertical. Because of this, some students may find these puzzles too challenging.
As a teacher, I love to use these in small group settings where children are allowed to help each other. I’ve also used them as a whole class activity, or paired the students with a single partner. At home, parents can help their children (if needed) and use these puzzles as a teaching/learning bonding experience. each puzzle also includes an answer key.
Teachers can use these puzzles as fast-finishers or in center work stations. Let students use highlighters or special markers/pens (like smelly markers!) for added fun.
As students search to find each word, they will practice being able to recognize the word in a unique setting, while practicing spelling and letter recognition.
