Back to School Word Games for Kids
We have created 3 great printable summer games for kids to play. I’m a huge fan of word games. I grew up devouring word search games. Begin with our printable back to school word search game. All you have to do is print off the game and the kids can search around the letters for the school-themed words. Don’t forget to print the summer word search game answers. Always good to have the answers on hand, in case you get stuck.
Next, we have our back to school word jumble game. Word jumbles are great for older kids to play with. Can they unscramble all the school words? If you want to make things more challenging, set a timer and see how many words they can successfully unjumble in a set amount of time. Don’t forget to print our back to school word jumble answer key too.
Finally, we have our back to school crossword puzzle. This one includes a series of questions and fill-in-the-blanks the kids have to answer to find the words that fit in the puzzle. Here’s a hint, I’ve included pictures of the answers too! Again, our back to school crossword puzzle answer sheet is available if you need it.
These printable word games are great for teachers to use during the first few weeks back at school. Games are a wonderful way to engage with kids and a simple way to start to understand where they are at with reading, writing. At home, these games are a way to get kids excited about heading back to the classroom. Maybe pull them out before creating a back to school shopping list. What school supplies do you need? See if you can fin them in the game.
