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.
Children don't only need to recognize and sound out letters, but they also need to learn to print the letters of the alphabet. You can do this on your own by just printing a sample of a letter and have your child copy it. However, some children need a little extra help in forming the letters and really benefit from tracing over letters several times before trying to do it without a template. Luckily, there are lots of resources online where you can print these letter tracing templates. If your child starts to get frustrated, then take a break. You want them to have fun learning and be supportive of the whole journey.
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.
