Do your students love to decode? Well... here is a serious dose of decoding delight! (Check out the preview!) This download includes 12 secret word search activities, answer keys, and also a clip art decoded answer key (for the teacher).
Here's how it works:
Each activity page has two word search grids. One that is all clip art pictures and one that is blank. Your students will use beginning sounds of each clip art picture to decode the word search. They will write the corresponding letter for each beginning sound on their blank grid (in the correct position). Once their word search puzzle is decoded, they can begin looking for the words in the word bank.
Words included are:
*ALL of Fry's First 100 Sight Words (except "I' and "a")
*Color Words (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, white, black, brown)
*Number Words 0-10
*Beginning sound recognition
*Practice writing letters and letter formation
*Reading sight words (Fry's First), color words, and number words (0-10)
*Being able to search for and identify words that are hidden
*Fine motor skills
To keep this activity straight forward for students, all words to be found in the word searches are either horizontal (left to right) or vertical (up to down). No diagonals and no backwards words.
