: This is a fun word search activity to use when introducing or reviewing some common vocabulary related to writing in the classroom. If your students are like mine, they love word searches and are sure to enjoy this one.
In this writing themed puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions. Keep this in mind if choosing to use it with third graders.
I use word searches to introduce vocabulary or concepts, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to use in writing if kids are in need of writing topic ideas. Perfect for a sub, too. Have your students pick some of the words from the list to use in a paragraph or a short story. Also, they can be used as a literacy center or as an early finisher activity. Use this writing vocabulary word search however you would like in your classroom.
