Easiest Prep Ever

This activity couldn’t get any simpler to prep.

Just print the activity you want kids to work on, grab one or two school supplies like markers or scissors, and you’re all set.

Easy peasy!


The word work activities are incredibly easy to differentiate:
1. Grab the FREE bundle of Hello Fonts.
2. Then open up the Word Work Activity Pack, type in your word list for your first level of readers, and print the activity you want your kids to practice.
3. Hop back to the word list and swap out the words for your next level of readers. The new words will automatically load into the correct spot on all of the activities.

    I love your ideas I just wish more were free.

    • Malia Hollowell

      I’m so happy to hear that you’re a fan of the activities, Della! I offer hundreds of free printables but, as I’m sure you can imagine, it takes many, many hours to create the activity bundles and, consequently, I must charge for the hours I put into their creation.

    Is this package still available for $6.99?

    I have been using so many of your free products and have LOVED them! When the recent sale was going on, I tried to purchase the editable word work packet from your site. Unfortunately, the site wasn’t functioning properly due to traffic. So, I purchased it through teacherspayteachers. I followed the directions for downloading the fonts. I’ve tried to type in my own spelling words/sight words multiple times but haven’t been able to do so. I realize I can print most of the pages and handwrite the words, but there are a few that it would be nice to just type the words in. Any suggestions?

    Hi! This looks like an awesome resource. Does the “hide it” word activity include more than one picture, or is it just the forest scene shown? Thanks!

    • Ashley

      Hi Alicia,
      Thanks for reaching out.
      There are two “Hide It” activity pages – the forest scene and one other.
      Hope that helps!
