Literacy Worksheets for Early Learners

Group of happy young students

Our literacy worksheets combine spelling, reading, writing, and drawing in a really fun way! Early learners will read a few simple words, choose one to use in a sentence, draw a picture, and then complete the spelling of three words. Best of all, the child tells about himself as he completes each sentence. That's a sure way to keep kids engaged and on task!

Two worksheets feature simple words with short vowel sounds. One uses words with long vowel sounds. Here are thumbnails of two of the worksheets. Be sure to get the entire printable set.
