What makes a spelling worksheet fun? As a long-time educational writer, parent and former classroom teacher, I’d like to suggest these three factors: 1) Fun spelling reproducibles use whimsical art themes. Bring on the juggling clowns, leaping frogs, dazzling princes and princesses, and you’ll be off to a great start. Spelling worksheets for first graders and second graders are fun when they look fun. It’s not necessary to print out expensive worksheets in full-color. Black-and-white pages work just fine when there is some appealing art. First and second graders can always add their own color!
3) The best first grade worksheets and second grade worksheets are written at the right level of difficulty. Worksheets are not fun if they are way too hard or way too easy. As you probably know, early learners are easily frustrated if something is too hard. On the other hand, if a page is too easy, it is a waste of time and resources for everyone. Strive to assign pages in which students have to work a bit to succeed. Where can you find fun spelling worksheets? There are many good sources. Look at hard copies sold in catalogs and stores as well as instant downloads online. With the wide availability of free clip art, it is also easy to make your own spelling worksheets that use exactly the words you need.
3. Quality vs Quantity. Some free worksheets are not good quality – the pictures are fuzzy, backgrounds print grey or speckled – and children tend to notice these things. If you are using the worksheets to educate your child, you may want to choose good quality worksheets that encourage your child to produce good quality work. After all, it’s a little difficult to ask your child to color within the lines and work neatly when the worksheet they are filling in hasn’t done the same.
