The time period from the beginning of August through right after Labor Day weekend marks back to school time around much of the country. While my kids have already been at school for a few weeks, I thought it would be fun to put together a free Back to School Word Search Printable Set.
This download includes two different versions of the free Back to School word search printable set. There is an easier version and a more difficult version of the puzzle.
In addition to the different levels, each of those levels has an additional two versions. One version has the letters in the puzzle are laid out in a grid. In the other version, the letters are still in a grid pattern but there are no boxes around the letters. I feel like the grid version is best solved using a highlighter. In the printable without grid lines, letters can be circled or you can use a highlighter.
You won’t have to pick the version you want to do before you download though. You can just download the free set and then pick out the one that will be the best fit for your children or students and only print what works best for you.
