3rd Grade Spelling Worksheets

Sharing is caring!

It’s easy to think that spelling isn’t a subject we really need to teach kids anymore – what with auto-correct and all. But it’s still important for children to learn how to spell on their own. After all, most employers don’t accept resumes written in textspeak. 🙂

So I’m always on the lookout for 3rd grade spelling worksheets that will be great for elementary-aged kids and I’ve rounded up several here today! Some of these have been featured right here on my site and some come from other educational websites, so there’s a lot of variety to choose from.

Why is it important to learn 3rd grade spelling words?

There are so many important words for kids to learn! Once they learn their sight words, they’ll want to continue to keep learning new words as well. Some of the spelling activities below are a simple printable worksheet while others can be easily added to lesson plans. 

​Learning a correctly spelled word is important for third grade students, and these activities are great for young children to help with language skills. They’ll learn the base word, short words, and get extra practice for the correct spelling of a lot of words. 

These printable activities showcase a list of words to help kids understand a common spelling pattern and to help with phonemic awareness.
