: Are you working on themes in literature? If so, your students will enjoy this fun theme word search!! If your students are like mine, they love these.
In this theme puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for a few phrases and not just words (see the list below).
I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to use in writing. Perfect for a sub, too. Have your students pick a theme from the list to use in their writing activity. Possibly read a stories throughout the week and have students refer to the crossword in order to determine a theme for the story. Use this theme word search however you would like in your classroom.
