Research has shown that repetition is essential for the brain to learn and recall information. The engaging puzzles in this book will provide your child with repeated practice of grade-level-appropriate vocabulary. Becoming fluent, or automatic, with these words helps develop reading fluency and build a strong foundation in reading comprehension, an important skill for academic success. In addition, solving word search puzzles provides fun spelling practice.
Upon your child’s completion of each activity, use the provided incentive chart and stickers to track progress and celebrate your child’s success.

HOW YOU CAN HELP SUPPORT LEARNING
- Have your child tell you the meaning of the words.
- Help your child use a dictionary to look up the meaning of unfamiliar words.
- Challenge your child to use each word in a sentence.
- Support your child in using the following strategies to complete the word searches:
- Use a finger or the eraser end of a pencil to guide the search for words.
- Scan back and forth along each row (or up and down each column) to look for the first letter in each word.
- Search for less common letters in a word, such as J, B, K, Q, X, Y, or Z, to make the rest of the word easier to find.
- Cross off the words in the Word Box as they are found.
