Free Worksheets for Kids
for FUN spelling practice!

These free worksheets for kids feature fun packages that are full of spelling errors. And you may have noticed that kids love to find other people's mistakes! You may want to browse the graphics right here, but for best results, use the printable version for your students.

On the printable version, students are asked to circle the mistakes on the package, and write the misspelled words correctly in the blanks.
