Here is a free printable 2nd grade word search for kids with a letter writing theme.
It’s a fun activity for children learning to write a friendly letter.
This easy word search is perfect for early elementary students around 2nd grade.
The puzzle has 12 words for kids to find and circle.
Ten of the words are from the “Letter Writing & Cards” themed second grade spelling words.
The remaining two words: “write” and “pen” are previously learned first grade spelling words.
The words are hidden horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
Since it’s a 2nd grade word search, all words are facing forwards, nothing backwards or upside down.
Since kids will be searching for the letters that make up each word, this word search is a good first step to help kids learn to spell these words common to letter writing.
Writing Letters or Cards
A good way to further help kids learn the spelling of these words, would be for them to write a letter or a card to someone. That way they will be using these words in their real life, which usually means learning happens naturally and effortlessly.
Here are a few simple ideas:
- a “Get Well Soon” card
- a simple short note to a loved one like: “Dear Dad, I love you very much.”
- a thank you card
