After being read to for a year or so, children will want and even pretend to be reading the words themselves. Usually they have picked up a word or two by memory, and it will be a good time to introduce flash cards. Preschoolers can handle about 3 flashcards at a time and once they have a good comprehension of those 3, then 2 more can be added. This method is called "chunking" and is very successful. Repetition is important, and testing the meaning of the word in conversation with the child.
Why do young students especially benefit from fun worksheets? Because first grade spelling students and second grade spelling students have so much to learn! As we all know, once young minds get distracted, it can be very difficult to get them back on track! When students see the same familiar formats over and over, as in many workbooks, it is all too easy for them to yawn, scribble a bit and move on to something more interesting.
Or if you need a quick version to study tonight's spelling list, simply use one of the game boards you already have and make up a quick game by replacing the game's money with spelling words, such as spelling "castle" or "shadow" to buy property in Monopoly. The more fun you can make learning spelling words, the easier they will become to your child and the easier it will become for you to get them to sit down and get ready for the week's big spelling test.
