This word search is designed for K-2 children in prep, foundation, grade 1 or grade 2. It's relatively simple, however there are some bigger words included. Children will need to have basic reading skills and letter recognition to confidently complete the word search.

Once you've printed as many copies of the word search as you need get your children or students to search for the words. The easiest way for them to do this will be to circle or highlight the individual letters of each word as some letters overlap for more than one word.

The words can be found vertically, horizontally, diagonally and some are also backwards so some may be a little trickier than others. Each time they find a word get them to cross off or highlight the word in the word list at the bottom of the page so they can easily see which words are left to find.

If you want to reuse the print out for more than one child, laminate it and get them to mark it off with washable markers or whiteboard markers.

If you're using the word search as a once off activity simply print off as many copies as needed so each of your children or students have a copy. If you're using the word search in a classroom as a group rotation activity you may want to print a smaller number and laminate them so they can be wiped clean and reused.
