Oooooh, I just LOVE making phonics worksheets…!   There seems to be an inexhaustible number of ways to practice reading, sound-by-sound. I gather a list of words, look for fun graphics using those words… and the ideas for practice just FLOW! What do you think, should I spend more time making these little lovelies??

Hey, look — the link just below opens up a free group of fun worksheets I made from scratch, which I am giving to you for FREE, without asking a thing in return FOR MYSELF. However, they get lonely sitting here without more kids using them — so could you PLEASE share this page or this site with other peeps who might download them for their children or students? Thanks! 😀

It helps me pay for this site to get occasional clicks on ads and orders for the (I think they’re awesome) affiliate products I promote. If you don’t like the ones I feature and have others to recommend — please let me know! I love to find new products to show off — I wish I was rich and could give them away! 😀
