We developed this produce as part of our Safari Animal Project. Initially as a Literacy Center, we soon found that these supported children in their language acquisition related to the topic and the animals studied, for example, carnivore, herbivore, herd, pack, tusks, horns etc.
Not only that, but the spellings of the children improved through the use of these word searches as part of the topic. A number of the words repeat throughout the word searches linked to the animals. Therefore, by putting the words in different places, and spelling them in different directions, the children were continually looking at how to spell the words, and consequently, in their free writing, spellings were embedded.
When you purchase this produce, you will receive 7 different word searches of animals found in the wild:
We picked animals which the children would be interested in and have a natural interest in. They are either large, or cute - but we wanted our children to love this activity!
Each word search has its own answer key too!
Preparation is easy, simply print and go.
Ideal for Literacy Centers, Homework Activities, Spelling Warm Up, Early Morning Activities or as an activity for those early finishers.
