April's Spring word search includes 2 levels of difficulty and many extra activities (coin count, estimating length, map directions, converting measurements, writing prompts and reading readiness).
There's a secret message to be revealed in the word search once students find all the words.
Lots of extras including:
-Coin count: Students must add to find how much money is in each group of coins. Coins are realistic representations
-Missing Addends: students fill in missing numbers to complete addition equation. ex: 5 images of carrots + 2=7
-Estimating length: Students are shown an object and told the length. They are also shown another object and must estimate the length
-Estimating (choosing the best unit of measurement): students must decide on the best estimate for an object. Ex: is an egg 2 inches or 2 feet
-Converting Measurements: Students must convert feet to inches or inches to feet. Ex: 1 ft 3 in = __ in or 14 in = __ft __in
-Egg hunt (following directions on a map) Students must follow directions to find the hidden egg. Ex: go north to the hammock. Go east to the vegetable garden.
-Word search: includes an easy and a more challenging word search. After all the words are found, the remaining letters form a phrase.
Reading readiness: Students are instructed to read the sentences and then follow the directions, such as “draw a leaf on every apple.”
-Writing Prompts: plus extra lined paper:
-Earth Day is important because...
-I couldn’t believe what I found at the Easter egg hunt...
-It had been raining nonstop for 3 months...
-I played an April Fool’s joke but it backfired...
