Back to School Games : Word Scramble

Ready for more Back to School fun? I love to have word games for kids available for those times we need a little break and want to do something simple and fun. We grab one of these babies, set a timer and race to see who can finish the fastest.


Back to School Word-Scramble

Word puzzles are fun and entertaining for people of all ages. These puzzles can help you learn a new subject, exercise your brain, and increase vocabulary and spelling skills. In my opinion word puzzles can help make language learning more enjoyable and interesting.

How to use:

  1. CLICK HERE to print out the free printable on card stock or regular computer paper.
  2. Place puzzle in a plastic sleeve or laminate for longer use.
  3. Have your child or student unscramble these words using the word bank on the bottom of the page.

Ideas for Parents and Teachers

  • Try covering the word bank to make unscrambling more difficult for older children
  •  Look for these words while reading great books together. Try some of these First Day of School favorites!
  •  Ask your student to say these and other spelling words out loud now and then and in a complete sentence.
  •  If your child can write, then have them write each word a few times for review.
