Activities are automatically generated from your word list, sentence collection, or text file.

Word Search

Create word searches from any word list in seconds. Hide the words in up to eight directions. Jumble the words in the word bank to add a degree of difficulty. Or provide greater challenge by using clues in place of the word bank.

Select from a wide variety of configuration options for your word search puzzle that will make it suitable for students of any age. Then simply print as many copies of the puzzle as you require, along with the automatic answer key, and watch your students dig in!

Cloze Tests

The cloze creator built into Vocabulary Worksheet Factory provides educators with a fast and easy way to generate cloze tests for their students.

A cloze test is a reading comprehension exercise involving a text with selected words deleted and needing to be replaced. With Vocabulary Worksheet Factory you can take any passage of text and instantly turn it into a cloze worksheet.

Cloze

Crossword

Take any word-list and turn it into a crossword instantly. Press the Generate button to get a new layout until you get one you like. Add a word bank to provide self-checking for your students.

You can also add hints to make the crossword a little easier to solve. For example you can add five percent of the letters, the first letter of each word, or all the down words. Other options include rules for concatenation, and square size and color.

Crossword

Jumbles

Provide your students with a set of words in which the letters of each word are jumbled and they are tasked with unscrambling them.

Choose whether to reverse the letters, randomly mix the letters, or split the word and then jumble the splits. You can also provide a clue for each word and add a word bank.

Word Jumbles

Word Fit

Part crossword and part word search, the task here is to fit the list words into the encircled squares. Words can read forward, backward, up, down and diagonally and will normally cross other words.

You can increase the difficulty by hiding the capsules surrounding the words. Or make it easier by providing hints with a displayed first letter or a percentage of letters.

Word Fit

Secret Trails

In this activity each word is hidden in a forest of letters. The task is to draw a line that follows the trail of letters in the hidden word.

The trail can take many turns (up, down, right, left) and even double-back on itself. To increase the difficulty of the trail, you can optionally turn on diagonal direction changes as well. Or to make finding the trail a little easier, you can show the first letter of each word. Other options include adding clues and a word bank.

Secret Trails

Matching

Students provide the word that best matches each clue. A word bank can be added to make the task a little easier.

Or, to add an extra challenge, the words in the word bank can be turned into jumbles with the letters randomly scrambled, reversed, or split and repositioned.

Matching

Missing Vowels

This is a new take on the traditional word search. In this variation all the vowels are missing! So the task is to find the hidden list words using only the consonants. Like the Word Search activity, there are options to place the words in any direction and to allow letter sharing.

A variety of grid shapes is also available including frames and holes. And column and row coordinates can be displayed.

Missing Vowels

Spelling Quest

Any block of text can be made into a spelling exercise. One word in each line of text is automatically misspelled. Students must identify the misspelled word and write the corrected word on the line provided.

A word bank can be provided for self-correction. And the words in the word bank can be turned into jumbles to add an extra challenge.

Spelling Quest

Word Maze

Words are strung together to form a trail through a maze of letters. Beginning with the circled letter, students use clues or a word bank to find and mark the trail of letters of all the connected words through the maze to the last letter.

The path can wander up, down, left, right, and, if selected, diagonally. Options include concatenation rules, maze size, and color.

Word Maze

Punctuation

Take any block of text and selectively remove the punctuation. Students then insert the correct punctuation where needed. Automatically remove periods, commas, colons, semicolons, question marks, exclamations, apostrophes, hyphens, quotation marks, spaces, and uppercase. You can also remove additional characters and symbols with the Custom Remove function.

Choose to show prompts that indicate where punctuation is missing or add an answer bank that lists the type and number of punctuation that has been removed.

Punctuation

Stripped Sentences

Use a sentence collection to give students an editing exercise. Automatically remove selected elements of the sentences including punctuation, spacing, and uppercase. The students then rewrite the corrected sentences on the provided lines. And to add an extra challenge, the sentence can be reversed.

Stripped Sentences

Wacky Trails

This activity is similar to Secret Trails. But unlike Secret Trails where each word trail is in its own grid, wacky trails puts all the word trails in a single grid. So the task is to find and connect the trail of letters for each word.

The trails can wander up, down, left, right, and, if the option Allow Diagonal Placement is enabled, can wander diagonally. To make the activity a little easier to solve, there are options to Show Start and/or End Bubbles to indicate the beginning or ending of each word trail.

Wacky Trails

Spelling Challenge

Each question has a number of similar words but only one is spelled correctly and matches the clue that is provided. The letter of the correctly spelled word is to be written in the space provided after the question number. The number of choices to be generated can be selected ranging from two to six.

Spelling Challenge

Framework

The Framework activity is similar to a crossword but rather than clues to work with it is the number of characters in the words that is used to find the solution. To make the activity a little easier, hints can be provided as a percentage of letters revealed or as the first letter in each word.

Framework

Decoder Ring

In this activity the words have been written in code. The task is to use the decoder ring to crack the code and write the decoded word on the line beside the code. The letters in each word have been shifted clockwise or counter-clockwise a specific number of spaces on the decoder ring.

The secret code can be different for each word. Options allow for decoding direction and minimum and maximum decoding moves.

Decoder Ring

Sentence Parsing

The Sentence Parser is a new addition to Vocabulary Worksheet Factory. Take any sentence collection, and quickly remove specific words, groups of words, or parts of words creating a variety of activities to teach and reinforce correct sentence structure.

Sentence Parsing

Sentence Shapes

Like the Word Shapes activity, Sentence Shapes develops skills identifying words based on the shape (ascending, descending, neutral) of the characters but within the context of an entire sentence.

Use the Word Selection editor to select the words in the sentence that should be represented by boxed character shapes. Students then fill in the character boxes with the correct letters according to their shape. A list of the words that have been removed can be provided.

Sentence Shapes

Word Angles

Similar to a regular word search, this activity adds a twist with each word forming a right-angle. Word paths may run north, east, south, or west, will make one right-angled turn, and may cross another word path. It can be made a little easier by indicating the beginning of each word using the option Show Start Bubbles.

Word Angles

Alphabetical Order

Working with the list of words shown in the word bank, students put the words in alphabetical order. You can select the order direction: ascending or descending.

Clues can be provided for each word to add another level of engagement to the activity. Hints can be provided as well in which the activity begins with a percentage of words already placed in alphabetical order.

Alphabetical Order

Missing Letters

Students are given a set of words with a number of letters missing from each word. Letters are automatically removed based on the selected criteria.

The selection criteria can be set as a numeric value ranging from one letter per word up to six letters per word or as a random number of letters per word. The missing letters can also be all the vowels or all the consonants. And there is a custom option which allows for specifying particular letters or letter combinations for removal.

The replacement for the missing letter can also be selected: underline, dot, dash, or none.

Missing Letters

Custom Questions

Custom questions allows for creation of precisely the question you want. No generators for this question type. You provide the questions and the answers.

You can use a picture for the question as well as a picture for the answer which means you can use pictures of graphs or tables. The questions are then treated like any other question types in the program with options for font, colors, etc. You also have the option to randomize your questions or present them in the order created.

Custom Questions

Magic Square

In the Magic Square activity, the words in the word bank must be matched up with the clues provided. Once the match is made, the number of the correct clue is placed in the proper space of the square that is marked by the letter of the matching word. If the words and clues are matched correctly, the magic square columns, rows, and diagonals, will add up to the same number. Thus this becomes a self-correcting activity.

The size of the magic square can increased from 3x3 to 4x4 for even more of a challenge. Or, to add an additional twist, the words in the word bank can be presented as jumbles: scrambled, reversed, or split.

Magic Square

Spiral

In this activity, the words are placed in the spiral from either the outside in or the inside out. Numbered clues appear below the spiral grid and the word that matches the clue must be entered in the spiral in the correct direction beginning at the corresponding number.

A word bank can be provided and other options include square size, concatenation, and grid color.

Spiral

Letter Patterns

In this challenging puzzle activity, students must determine the pattern used for each set of letters and then provide the next two letters in the pattern.

Patterns are based on the position of the letters in the alphabet. For example, the next two letters in the pattern 'daebf' will be 'cg': move backwards three letters and then forward four letters.

Letter Patterns

Word Links

Each word in the list is split with the first part of the word listed on the left-hand side of the worksheet and the second part listed somewhere on the right-hand side of the worksheet. Lines must be drawn to connect the two parts of each word and the complete word written out. A word bank and clues can be provided.

Word Links

Spelling Hunt

This spelling activity allows for the selection of which words in each sentence will be misspelled. Simply select a sentence in the Word Selection Editor, double-click a word and a misspelling is created. Accept the misspelling or create your own.

Students are then presented with a collection of sentences with one or more misspellings in each sentence. They circle the misspelled words in the sentence and then write the correct spellings on the line provided below the sentence.

Spelling Hunt

Alphabetical Order 2

From a collection of sets of four words, students circle the word that comes first in alphabetical order in each set.

Alphabetical Order 2

New Editor Columns

New Editor Columns

Two new columns have been added to the word list and sentence editors. The Tag 1 and Tag 2 columns can now be combined with the previously existing Level and Classification columns to further aid in the organization of your word lists and sentence collections.
