As I mentioned last month when I posted the June Saints and Feast Days Word Search printable, I wanted to work this summer to fill in the gaps that I still had in the free printable monthly Catholic saint word searches. So, now it’s time for the July saints and feast days!
Extension Ideas for the July Saints and Feast Days Word Search Printable
As I’ve mentioned before, I really love the saints and feast days word search printables because I have always enjoyed doing word searches. Plus, I think that these Catholic saints word searches help children become more familiar with the names of saints and feast days, especially those they might not be otherwise familiar with. This could actually be a great excuse to look up more information about that saint or feast day and read more about about them!
You can also extend the learning beyond just this word search activity, if you would like, by asking students to do an activity like finding out one fact they didn’t know before about a saint on the list. Older children can be asked to write a paragraph about a saint or feast day of their choosing that appears on this month’s word search.
A 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.
