This free printable back to school word scramble game is perfect for kids of all ages.

It's hard to believe it's already that time of year! But I definitely saw a handful of first day of school photos already this week. So, I guess it's time to share some back to school tips and resources.

Personally, I'm dreading the whole school supply shopping thing. Especially given that I haven't had to do it in so long since my boys did online school for the last two years...Thankfully the kids are still weeks away from their first day of school. So, I can continue putting it off for another week or two.

But speaking of first day (or first week) of school, this back to school word scramble is a great activity to do. It features some common school supplies and school related vocabulary. 

And, if you enjoy this word scramble, try this back to school I spy game too.

Why Word Scramble Games are Good for Kids

Word scramble games are a great way for kids to work on vocabulary, spelling, language skills, working memory, problem-solving skills, writing, and so much more! There's a wide range of skills you could target here. Just get creative.

You can use free printable word scramble games like this one at home, in the classroom, or even on the road. Or you could use them in Zoom meetings for online learning (tips on how to do so here). They'd even make a great rainy day activity too!

Also, if you've been looking for other ideas on how to use your hyperlexic child's interests in letters, then word scramble games are a great fit. They definitely build off of a hyperlexic child's interest in letters. I mean the game is literally just a bunch of letters. Besides, using your hyperlexic child's interest to teach new skills is definitely something you should be doing - and something you'll hear me say a lot around here!

So anyway, if you're looking for a quick back to school themed activity, then give this back to school word scramble printable for kids a try.
