Discover the secret to automatic and effortless spelling for your child!

Spell requires a few skills - but a main one is writing the letter or letters that spell a sound.

Children with dyslexia must practice spelling sounds by themselves to develop mastery.  But most children benefit from this strategy.

You can have your child practice spelling sounds on a whiteboard, by these worksheets make it a lot easier.

These seasonal worksheets are compatible with any curriculum or program from your child's school or your homeschool. Teachers use these with Orton-Gillingham, All About Spelling, UFLI, and other Structured Literacy programs. 


  • the brain seeks out new experiences
  • children thrive with a structured routine
  • so trade out the worksheets every few weeks for the season
  • children like that the worksheets have a limited number of spaces - so they know practice has a firm end.


  • Call out sounds you've taught your class. For example, you could say /b/.
  • Your students repeat the sound /b/.
  • Students write the letter b on their worksheet.
  • Circulate and offer corrective feedback.
  • When you call a sound that has multiple spellings, your students write each spelling in a separate box. For example, if you call /ā/ (long a), your students write the graphemes (letters) a, a-e, ai, ay and any other variations they've learned from phonics.
  • Use in a dry erase sleeve to reuse but I also recommend you give students a hard copy and keep it for data at least once a month.

    NOTE: This is a companion resource to the Spelling Dictation Worksheets.


    You definitely didn't learn this in school.

    Depending on your region, there are around 44 sounds in English. They can be spelled from 1-8 different ways depending on the sound.

    Practicing the auditory drill, children build automatic recall all the sound-spellings. This also improves reading as encoding (spelling) is intertwined with decoding (sounding out).
