How to print and use printable word puzzle activities
You can just print this word search out and hand it over, but here are some tips to help you make the most of your printables.
As an adult, you might find the idea of solving the same word search puzzle multiple times boring. However, kids frequently enjoy doing the same activity multiple times.
If you want to make the activity reusable, either for an individual child or for repeated use as literacy center activities, laminate the page or slide it into a dry erase pocket. I also like using secure, heavy duty page protectors.
Heavy duty page protectors are the perfect way to quickly make reusable worksheets. They cost less per page than dry erase pockets and they're easy to keep organized in a three ring binder.
- Keep contents secure in the protective sleeve with convenient top flap; perfect for holding nonstandard size papers and important items
- Get a crisp, clear view of the contents of your documents with diamond clear page protectors featuring a polished finish for high clarity
- Ensure your documents stay protected with long-lasting super heavyweight sheet protectors for all of your frequently referenced items
Instead of using a wet or dry erase marker, we prefer to use Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils. They write very well and they're easy to wipe off. There's no stink and no ink! They will even wash off white walls. See them in action on this post with Dinosaur coloring pages.
- Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 Multi Talented Jumbo Pencils
- 3 in 1.... You get a XXL Coloured Pencil, Watercolour Pencil and Wax Crayon all in 1!
- Includes a Child Safety Sharpener
