- Word searches boost spelling skills.
- Word searches develop pattern recognition as well as word recognition.
- Word searches are fun and provide students with an engaging puzzle to solve.
What’s Included in the Autumn Word Search Set?
This printable set of word searches includes four different word finds for your students: two easy and two advanced.
The first easy word search is fall colors. In includes simple color words for your student to find in the puzzle. As your student finds the words, she can color the leaves the corresponding colors: gold, brown, red, yellow, and orange.
The second easy word search includes eight easy fall themed words for your kids to find.
The third word search is more difficult. It includes sixteen harvest themed words for your student to find. The words are longer (cranberry, tractor, squash) than the words in the easy word finds.
The final word puzzle also includes sixteen fall themed words for your student to find. These include fall activities and other elements of fall.
How to Use the Autumn Word Search Puzzles
Word finds are simple to use. Just print and go! You can even print the answer key and let students check their own work as they finish.
Before your student begins the word search, consider discussing the autumn themed vocabulary words. What does each one mean? How is it related to fall?
If desired, you can make the word searches reusable. Simply laminate or put in a plastic sheet protector and give your student a dry erase marker to complete the activity. When your student is finished, she can wipe it off and have it ready for the next student.
