I enjoy completing word searches. They are a way to keep my mind active and scanning for words is somehow relaxing to me. 

My children have always enjoyed working on word searches as well. I think word searches are a simple way to solidify spelling words and help kids learn new words.

We will talk about the words they are searching for and may look new words up in the dictionary to read the definitions. 

Word searches can be fun and educational. 

Just like any educational activity, there are usually some tips and tricks to make it easier. I have some hacks to help me find words quicker when I am completing a word search.

Here are some tips to help make your word search a success:

  • Look for the hardest words first. This seems to help me complete the puzzle quicker. 
  • Search a specific direction at a time. So look at each line vertically. Then look at each line horizontally. Move on to looking at the lines diagonally. This will help you avoid missing words.
  • Look for the first letter in the word. Every time you see that letter you can stop and determine if the word is there or not. If not, keep moving along.
  • Try scanning for the unusual letters in the words. If a word has a Z for instance, that would be a more unusual letter and easier to find.
