|Year End Puzzle()|
This year end word search puzzle engages kids' brains, while helping to support spelling and vocabulary building.
While students are finding the words in the grid, their brains are working to look for common letter patterns. Words are hidden in all 8 directions: vertically, horizontally and diagonally.
Here are some ideas to extend this activity:
-creating writing experiences (describe the color of the sand at the beach; recount a movie they have seen; explain how to water ski)
-have students paint/draw/create triorama or diorama related to one of the words in the list
-have students make a travel itinerary, complete with costs
This puzzle gives kids some 'things to do' over summer vacation.
