Benefits of Doing Word Searches

These may not be they kids’ go-to activity at home, but word searches for kids actually have many long-term educational and health benefits for your children. Word search activities help develop a young child’s vocabulary development in many ways. They help develop word recognition in toddlers by having them hunt for the matching word from the word bank. Word searches also encourage kids to use context clues, especially if the word search uses images or the words have a common theme like Animals, Food, or Colors. These easy word puzzles also are a great way to review vocabulary words and introduce new ones. As they search for the new words, they’ll also focus more on the spelling of the word and are more likely to recall it later during, say, a spelling test. Doing word searches or any logic puzzles releases dopamine in the brain which is like a “reward molecule” that will keep your child motivated longer and give him or her a sense of accomplishment every time he or she finds a word. While concern for Alzheimer’s and Dementia is far off for children, studies have shown that word searches and similar puzzles decrease the chance of the diseases occurring later in life. The simple little puzzles really have some great benefits for your children, so go on and print out this free one right now!
