Word Search

ages 4-6


Paper (graph paper or quad-lined paper optional), two pens of different colors

Activity Detail

Make a simple word search for your beginning reader. On a piece of paper, hide simple, familiar words in rows of letters. Let your child find and circle them. If you have quad-lined or "graph" paper, it's even easier. This is great for times when you're waiting at a restaurant or doctor's office, even a long plane trip.

This is also good to do in reverse for older children. My 1st grader does this with his spelling words and then I have to find the words- he loves to time me and see how long it takes me to "solve his puzzle"!

This activity helps to encourage word recognition, and it's nice because you can get creative and tailor the words you use to things your child is interested in.
