This is a PDF of a Trip to the Library crossword puzzle and word search activities, as well as bookmarks or name plates, a page of library rules, and three pages that describe the Dewey Decimal System. This is a perfect resource for preparing young kiddos to visit the library!
The crossword and word searches can be used in combination or separately, as the answers for the crossword puzzle are in the word search, as well as a few other words of the theme so there are several more words in the word search than the crossword puzzle. A word bank for the crossword puzzle is also included on a separate page. As this can be for younger students, an additional word search is also provided, which only has words vertically and horizontally - forward only. The more difficult word search also has words diagonally and backwards. Teacher answer keys are also supplied.
The resource includes the following (all non-editable PDFs):
7 pages - Crossword and two word searches, including answer keys and a word bank for the crossword on a separate page
4 pages - Library bookmarks or desk name plates - use these to write students' names or "FAST PASS" to jump to the beginning of the checkout line or storytime area to reward students
3 pages - Description of the Dewey Decimal System
1 page - Library Rules
3 pages - Description of the Dewey Decimal System in 11"x17" for better large printing
1 page - Library Rules in 11"x17" for better large printing
The crossword/word searches, and the boormarks/posters, are both available separately as resources in my shop:
