eep Word Family

Why are puzzles important? Puzzles play an important role in creating a cooperative and collaborative classroom. Educators can provide word search puzzles where students need to work together to find hidden words in a grid. This category of eep word family and rhyming words brain teasers gives students an opportunity to learn and consolidate this group of words. The first set of word search puzzles is your basic word search. Students need to use the list to find the words hidden in the grid. This is followed by the brain teaser challenge that requires students to first unscramble the letters before locating the words in the grid. The next word search brain teaser expects them to use foundational knowledge to locate words hidden in the grid, and then record the words in the space provided. The final category word search puzzles require students to solve crossword like clues. Students might find it easier to record the answers to the clues before trying to find the words in the grid. Using puzzles to introduce and support basic vocabulary building fosters a cooperative and collaborative classroom as students engage in a fun activity while learning at the same time.
