It's always great to find tools that make your job easier. I was looking for a word search creator that would allow you to save them in PDF. I want to make these for the spelling words each week. I figure it can help them learn to spell them if they have to look for them letter by letter. If not it's a good time filler for transitions when you want them to focus on something they think is fun!
Good news! I found one at Lakeshore Learning. You can access it here. Click on the picture:
If by chance you will be using the Houghton Mifflin Journeys 2014 Reading Series these will go right along with it. I have ready for 2nd grade of course, the Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 Spelling Words Word Search Puzzles and Keys.
Unit 1 Lesson 1 Key
Unit 1 Lesson 1 Word Search Puzzle
Unit 1 Lesson 2 Spelling Word Search
Unit 1 Lesson 2 Key
Let me know if these are useful and I'll be happy to share more!
Have a great day!
