If your students are like mine, they love these puzzles!
This is not just any 'ole puzzle. It doesn't just include words. It includes slogans about being drug free that your students will enjoy reading. Within each slogan, a word is underlined. Those are the words the students will find in the puzzle. For example, one sentence says, "Smoking can lead to croaking!" The word 'croaking' is underlined and that is the word they will find.
In this drug free themed word search puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words diagonally and backwards, and because they will practice reading skills.
I use word searches to introduce concepts or vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to use in writing. Perfect for a sub, too.
For this particular word search, you could have your students pick a slogan from the list and design a poster for Red Ribbon Week®. You could also allow them to come up with their own slogan if they wanted to get real creative.
There are many options for using this slogan word search.
One option is to have students partner up and practice fluency. They can take turns reading the sentences. Use it as a reading homework assignment,too. Parents can work with their child to find the words. Feel free to be creative and use it in your classroom however you would like.
