There are lots of ways you can use and expand these summer word search activities:
  • Vocabulary- Find and discuss the vocabulary words
  • Phonological Awareness Which words begin with a particular sound? (That you select)
  • Articulation students practice the words containing their target sound
  • Categorizing– each word search already includes words in a themed category. What sub-categories can you divide the words into? For instance, with the camping word search: Which items would you use at night? Which words go with the word tent? Can you think of more words for this word search?
  • Syntax Which words are verbs? Nouns? Plurals? Adjectives? Use the word in a sentence about last summer (past-tense), or next summer (future tense).
  • Describing Students choose a word and describe it with a category and two or three attributes/ features
  • Narratives Who can tell me a story about one of these words? Have students pick one word and tell their experiences. Prompt them to provide story elements- setting, characters, plot (what happened), feelings, and sequence- intro, middle, conclusion. Draw it! Write it!
  • Wh Questions Where would find this item? What do you do with it? Why would you need it? Who has one, (noun) has done this (verb)?
  • Alphabetizing the words listed are not in alphabetical order, have your students sequence and write them in order.
  • Sentence Formulation and Writing– Have your students choose a word and write it in a sentence.
