Hiya! So August is near, which for us means Back to School time is just around the corner! Today I am sharing a 3 page Back to School Printables pack using some fun word clouds. Stick around at the end of the post for loads of Back to School activities from my friends at the Busy Bags Blog Hop. There are a couple affiliate links in this post, FYI.
We have had a lot of fun with our word cloud activities. My daughter is in prime word recognition, spell-it-out and sight word territory. A traditional word search is still a bit tricky but I've found that clouds are a perfect solution.
You still get to work on all the literacy skills as well as visual scanning but having the words all a difference size gives it just the pop that a new reader needs to get going.
I went with three of the most common Back to School symbols- the apple, the school bus and the pencil. Makes sense, right?!
The way you use them is to look for the various words on the word cloud, strike through them on the image and tally them on the lines at the bottom. When you're done you can see which word was used the most.
You can get your 3 Page Back to School Word Cloud Printable on my Lalymom Shop Page, under Free Printables but be sure to scroll down for loads more Back to School Activities!
