|End of Year Word Search #06 For Google Apps
Here is an end of year word search puzzle for students to complete as a complement to a theme based language program.
Word search puzzles support fine motor and handwriting skills, brain engagement, problem solving strategy development and consolidation of spelling of unfamiliar words. Words can go in all eight directions:
To solve the puzzle, first review the list of theme related words in the word bank. Then, locate the list of 'end of year' words in the grid of letters. Finally, either circle the word or track the letter path of each word as the words are found.
As an extension activity, have students put single words in alphabetical order, play battleship-like grid game using 5 words or various lengths, or create a story/poem using vocabulary from the list.
Suitable for distance learning, hybrid classrooms (in-person and virtual learning) and in-person learning, this end of year puzzle is available in downloadable print and google apps versions.
