A fellow homeschooling mom filled me in on a site I am having WAY TOO MUCH fun with. :P
It's DiscoveryEducation.com. They have a fantasic puzzle maker that allows you to create your own word search puzzles!
I second her recommendation. ;)
Here are two I created, based on the books of the Bible:The children are having a lot of fun with these puzzles. :)
These are reinforcing which books are in the "front" of the Bible, and which are in the "back." The children are being strengthened in the correct spelling of the Bible books.
Patience, determination, and confidence are beneficial elements of incorporating word search puzzles into school curriculum. Also, allowing the children to make their own puzzles will allow independent learning and creativity, which makes this site even more fantastic! By being able to invent their own word puzzles, the children gain a sense of responsibility for contributing to a part of their learning activity. ;)
