I mentioned earlier this year that I hoped to fill in the last of the missing free printable monthly Catholic saints and feast days word searches. I managed to get the summer ones done, and I had just one remaining one to fill in. So, now it’s time for the December saints and feast days word search printable!
Extension Ideas for the December Saints and Feast Days Word Search Printable
I love the saints and feast days word search printables because not only do I like making them, but I have always enjoyed doing word searches.
These Catholic saints word searches help children become more familiar with the names of saints and feast days that happen throughout the month, especially those saints and feast days that they might not be familiar with. This is a great excuse to look up more information about that unfamiliar saint or feast day and read more about about them!
You can also extend the learning beyond just this word find activity by asking students to do an activity such as finding out one fact they didn’t know before about a saint on the list. Older children can write a paragraph about a saint or feast day of their choosing that appears on this month’s word search.
Another quick activity with the word searches can be to ask children find out the correct date for each feast day that is listed on that month’s word search printable.
