You may never need to go looking for a word search puzzle again. :-) Great for learning vocabulary. This word search pack has topics that include social studies, science, math, reading, writing, holidays, and more!! Perfect for early finishers and so many more uses listed below.

Please take time to read the wonderful reviews on this bundle. :-) I've had lots of people tell me that this is one of their favorite purchases ever on TpT. If you use word searches with a purpose, they are very versatile. See some possible uses below.

If I get a new idea for a puzzle, I add it to this bundle for you to download. Would you like me to consider making one on a topic you don't see? No guarantees, but I will try to work it into my schedule.

All of the word searches can be purchased separately in my store too.

✓BEFORE you buy :-) Take time to read the topics of the word search puzzles below. Some of the puzzles deal with United States history and holidays. If you do not live in the US, those might not apply to you. Also, a few of the topics might be more suitable for 4th and 5th, such as The Gettysburg Address.



These fun printable word searches are an ideal activity for students to use to review standard related vocabulary while at home during this time of school closures. Word searches can be completed with a parent or sibling. A fun home learning activity!

If your students are like mine, they love these. I use them to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. Use it however you would like in your classroom.

Important.....In the word searches, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonally. I would consider them 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.
