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.
As is, the sheets on this site are great for beginning letter and shape recognition. One component I believe to be missing from these tracing practice sheets, however, are the lines which mimic writing paper. Having those lines available is an important step toward appropriate letter size and formation when children are actually beginning to write and spell. To combat this, I have simply take a sheet of clear overhead transparency film and drawn the appropriate lines using permanent marker. This clear sheet is then laid over the tracing page.
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.
