Where’s the Word?

Students become super sleuths! Play hide and seek with words.

  • Grade 1
    Grade 2
    Kindergarten
  • 30 Minutes or Less
  • Directions

    1. In large block letters, students use Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to write a short word or their name. Color the block letters.
    2. Use regular Crayola Colored Pencils or Crayola Color Sticks to color in all around the word. Use the same color in blocks surrounding the letter so your word seems to vanish in the design.
    3. Exchange papers with a friend. Use the eraser to erase and find your friend’s hidden word.
  • Standards

    LA: Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.

    LA: Participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about grade level topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups.

    LA: Use words and phrases acquired through conversations, reading and being read to, and responding to texts, including using adjectives and adverbs to describe (e.g., When other kids are happy that makes me happy).

    VA: Use visual structures of art to communicate ideas.

    VA: Use different media, techniques, and processes to communicate ideas, experiences, and stories.

  • Adaptations

    Encourage students to use vocabulary words from science and/or social studies units of study. Students present their artwork with the definition of the terms and ask fellow classmates to uncover the term.

    Expand the lesson to include significant dates such as birthdays and holiday celebrations.
