A Few Important Words About Spelling WorksheetsAfter kids nail down their ABCs, the next stop on the early education train is spelling. And once that train gets going, it never stops, as spelling is a vital skill that serves us for life. Our spelling worksheets help students of all ages hone that skill throughout their education journey, from sight words and words with silent letters to homophones and words that are difficult to pronounce. For additional help with spelling, turn your next neighborhood cookout into a fun spelling bee, offering cool prizes for first-, second- and third place. Grab some index cards and a marker, and write grade-appropriate spelling words, so kids of all ages can participate in the competition. That way a first-grader can theoretically be matched up against a ninth-grader in the final round. After a champion is crowned in the kids’ spelling bee, let them turn the tables on the adults. Not only will the younger crew get a kick out of seeing their parents struggling to spell difficult words, but by looking at and saying the words on the index cards, they’ll reinforce the correct spellings.
