These challenging yet easy games can help hone your language skills and increase your vocabulary. Therefore, now there are many middle schools and even the senior levels that do this method to train their verbal skills.
Especially with the many word puzzles that must be completed in a certain time and with a special theme, this makes middle school children more trained in understanding new words in a short time. Finally, this will hone their brains to be able to think creatively, quickly, and responsively.
Language is the integration of some elements, such as speech, body gestures, writing, and signs. Along with the times, language has undergone many changes and has become an important aspect of human life.
Humans acquire language skills since they are born by listening and imitating the language spoken by the people around them. Well, this is called the Languages Acquisition Device Theory. This theory is based on research from Noam Chomsky, University of Pennsylvania.
However, along with the development of research related to words and language, researchers from the University of Wroclaw and his colleagues found that the study by Noam Chomsky was wrong. The part of the brain that plays an important role in remembering words and language is the left hemisphere.
The hemispheric area consists of two parts, namely Broca and Wernicke. Broca is located in the superior frontal gyrus which can help to process spoken and written language. Meanwhile, the superior temporal gyrus serves to understand the contents of the speech.
These two parts are located in the frontal lobe of the cortex in the cerebrum. They are connected with the aphasia fasciculus nerve. So, if children are used to doing word searches, of course, they will activate the functions of that part of the brain. That will make the child's intelligence increase. In fact, if practiced continuously, children can speak many languages.
The first thing first to rule is that you need to make sure the children are in a conducive environment so they can concentrate fully. So, here are tips that can be done to make it easier!

Completing a word search or word hunt puzzle looks easy enough, but has great benefits for those who play in the long term. That's what makes children sometimes have difficulty with the words they have to find.
Moreover, there are certain words that must be found in accordance with a predetermined theme. Of course, this means that children cannot look for other words outside of this theme.
This word-finding puzzle is also arranged with different levels of difficulty. So, the higher the level, the more difficult the game will be.
So, apart from the things we have explained, these 'hunting games' can provide many of the following benefits:
Doing this brain game regularly can help improve children's spelling skills. This is because they are familiar with the search and pronunciation of the words they find. Why? Because the words in the puzzle usually have the same pronunciation, but different meanings. That's what makes children have to be careful in pronouncing these words, so they don't choose the wrong word.
Children will become accustomed to the mechanism for searching for words that require fast time and high concentration. That's what can make the child's brain become more active.
If the children do it regularly, they will be able to solve many problems around them quickly. They can also think more creatively because their brains are used to doing this through word searches.
