Summer is almost here! This is a fun end of school/summer word search!! I use them to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. If your students are like mine, they love these. Use it however you would like in your classroom.
In this summer themed puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonally. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions. Keep this in mind when considering it for third grade and below.
Also, they can be used as a literacy center if your students write about what they plan to do during the summer. They can use some of the words from the word search in their writing.
