Word Search Creator, Jr.
Word Search Creator, Jr. is one of the many interactives available on ABCya.com. This particular game allows the user to type in ten words that are eight letters or less. It then generates one-line horizontal word searches for each word. This would be a great way to differentiate for those younger students who know their spelling words backwards and forwards, or who might want to do a little independent research and create a list of their own. This game has a dragon, who guides the user through the steps, including the creation step which allows the student to decide if the activity will be done on the computer or printed out.
