Introduce your first grade students to new vocabulary words with our winter-themed vocabulary word searches! These word searches not only provide a fun and interactive way for students to learn new words, but also serve as a tool for building their reading comprehension, conceptual understanding, and critical thinking skills.

The winter themes included in this set of ten word searches are: Arctic Animals, Cocoa, Groundhog Day, New Year’s, Dental Health, Penguins, Snowman, Winter Activities, Winter Clothing, and Valentine’s Day. They also incorporate the opportunity to practice using newly acquired vocabulary by using some of the words in sentences.

These word searches are a helpful no-prep activity that can be fit into any schedule. They can be used for morning warm-up, for early finishers, in literacy centers, as writing vocabulary reference, indoor recess, take-home break packets, and more.

With a variety of themes and sentence writing practice, this set is sure to keep your students engaged and motivated to learn new vocabulary words!

Our word searches have been tried and tested by teachers and received positive feedback. They are an easy-to-use, no-prep resource that can be integrated into any curriculum.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I LOVED these for my first graders at the end of the school year. Great practice for them doing word searches…kept them quiet and on task since they were summer-themed which helped me get individual testing done.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students love these word searches! They are the perfect difficulty for my second graders! (Christmas Word Searches)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students LOVED this! So many various puzzles and just the right level of difficulty. (Christmas Version) –First and Second Grade Teacher

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Nice back-to-school activity for early finishers. Great for 1st grade with no hard diagonal or backward words.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students love these word searches! I love that they have boy and girl representation, answer keys, and a large variety of community helpers. –Second Grade Teacher

    This was perfect for when we came back from winter break. I used this for the end of the day when we were waiting for buses and I am so glad it was no prep! Thank you so much!
