Here are some simple autumn / fall word searches and puzzles you can use to practise vocabulary for this time of year. There are three kinds of puzzle – beginning letter match, word search and word match. I’ve also included three levels of difficulty, so you can choose according to the age group you teach. I’ve also included version in US English and UK English.
We’ve got more resources for practising autumn / fall vocabulary that you can use together with this printable. See the end of the post for more!
How to use the Autumn – Fall Word Searches & Puzzles Printable:
- Download the printables. Choose the level of difficulty appropriate for your child. Look for these symbols:
Level 1 (Pre-K):
Appropriate for preschool children (age 3 – 4) who are just starting to learn their letters. Includes four words to practise and very large print. Children match the picture to the beginning letter of the word. Includes upper case and lower case puzzles.
Level 2 (K):
Appropriate for kindergarten children (age 5) who are learning to read, write and spell. Includes six words to practise and large print. The word search includes only horizontal words. For the word match, children must fill in the first letter of the word then draw a line to the correct object.
Level 3 (First Grade):
Suitable for first grade (age 6). Puzzles include eight words to practise and smaller more “grown-up” print. The word search includes both horizontal and vertical words to find. For the word match, children must fill in a number of missing letter for each word, then draw a line to the correct object.
- When they have finished the puzzles, kids can colour the pictures.
- Print on normal printer paper and photocopy, or laminate if you want re-usable puzzles!
