Kids love word searches. They help students pay attention to letters and letter sequence and to help practice their decoding skills.
You can either print on paper for students to use (great for morning work, centers, and early finishers), or place in a pocket protector sheet/laminate and have students use a dry erase marker to circle the words (great for a literacy workstation).
I hope your class enjoys this arctic animal freebie. If you are interested in more arctic animal activities, please see my arctic animal science unit!
