onohara_aug23It’s easy to make a word search puzzle. First, make a list of the vocabulary words you want to practice. Then, get or make a grid on a piece of paper. Write in the words, horizontally, vertically and diagonally. You can write some backwards for a bigger challenge. Let them overlap in some places where the letters are the same. Fill in the leftover squares with random letters. It’s too easy to solve a puzzle you made yourself, so trade puzzles with a friend before solving!
