Fall Word Search

There are many benefits to using word searches in class. They are a low-stress way to introduce or review vocabulary. They develop word recognition and improve spelling. And they're FUN! Students love them. They enjoy the thrill of the hunt! This word search raises the thinking level by having students first define the word, then find it.

Use Spanish word searches as a warm up, for fast finishers, homework, in stations, an after the test activity or easy Spanish sub plans.

Fall Crossword Puzzle

It's always good to offer a variety of activities for teaching the same content. Crossword puzzles are another low-stress way to exercise your brain and improve vocabulary and memory.
