Learning Objective

Students will develop spelling pattern knowledge and word recognition by identifying vocabulary within thematic word searches.


Word searches make great morning work, literacy centers, and early finisher activities! These summer word searches are also a fun way to practice finding themed vocabulary words during down time on field day, indoor recess due to heat, or to assemble as a summer take home packet.

In this resource you will find twelve summer themed words searches with twelve word puzzles to solve and their answer keys:

Playing at the Park

A Day at the Beach

Summer Vacation

Backyard BBQ

Step Right Up (carnival themed)

Big Top (circus themed)
